Next Big Thing: Chelsea Handler's New Netflix Documentary Series

Chelsea Handler stopped by the Variety Studio at Sundance on Saturday and took a moment to recount one of her more painful interview experiences.

When asked to name her worst-ever interview subject, Handler crowned pop star Justin Bieber with the title.

"Justin Bieber maybe, because he was trying to flirt with me and it was so uncomfortable," she said. "Like, that's his schtick. He would come on and flirt with you and you just felt like a child molester right away. And I didn't want to feel that way."
