Jon M. Chu Talks Justin Bieber: 'He's Not as Bad as the Paparazzi Portray Him to Be'

Justin Bieber‘s Never Say Never and Believe movie director Jon M. Chu has definitely got his back.

“He’s not as perfect as he says he is,” the director recently shared with Esquire about the 19-year-old entertainer. “…and he’s not as bad as the paparazzi portray him to be. He’s a kid.”

Bill O’Dowd, the CEO of Dolphin Films who produced Believe, also chimed in on Justin‘s behalf: “I’m sure he would take back some of the things he’s done, but I don’t know how we can expect a rambunctious young boy to stay in his hotel watching a movie and eating room service every night. I just don’t know what people expected.”
