JT: Having a son opened the floodgates to my past

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE says becoming a dad has made him realise how being a child star ‘f***ed me up’.

Trousersnake, who started out in the Mickey Mouse club with Britney Spears before finding fame in boy band NSync, said raising his 23-month-old son Silas with actress wife Jessica Biel has opened the ‘floodgates’ on his own past.

‘You go through your life with your own traumas, big and small, and think, “It’s not that bad, I have a lot to be thankful for, my parents did the best they could”,’ said the 36-year-old.

‘But then you have a child of your own and suddenly it opens all the floodgates and you’re like, “No, no, no! That childhood trauma really did f*** me up!”’
