Apparently art just isn’t for everyone. Case in point? Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake’s son at the Louvre. While some pint-sized Picasso’s delight in the masterful works adorning gallery walls, Biel and Timberlake’s son Silas just isn’t one of them. And here’s what happened when the Biel recently took the three-year-old to the Louvre.
Yes the Louvre is one of the best-known museums around the world. And yes, plenty of people would be honored or enthralled to stroll through its famous galleries. But when Biel strolled her tot through the iconic art museum, Silas just wasn’t into it.
The actress told Seth Meyers on Late Night With Seth Myers, “He’s got his iPad and he’s literally giving me the meanest face, like, ‘You are so boring, leave me alone.'”
Even though Silas might be in the midst of an opportunity of a lifetime—following his pop star dad on the European leg of his Man of the Wild tour—it looks like he is absorbing absolutely everything. And that’s totally okay.
Sometimes the iPad is just more fun than the Mona Lisa. Right? Hey, no one is saying that you (or Biel) shouldn’t try introducing their child to the wonderful world of art history. But sometimes true appreciation—or any appreciation at all—just doesn’t happen until later on.
