Biel, who attended the premiere with husband Justin Timberlake by her side, says she’d rather their son not get into the entertainment business.
“I mean, no … it’s such a challenging existence being an artist,” she says when asked if she wants Silas to go the show-business route.
She adds, “It’s hard. I just want him to be happy, whatever he does.”

He continued, “And my wife was like, ‘That’s right, it’s from Dreamworks Animation’s Trolls that comes out November.’ I was like, ‘I owe you one for that.’ ”
