Asked if she had received any threatening messages from Bieber's notoriously protective fans, Thiessen insisted that she is no competition to his legions of supporters.
"Not that I could see on my Twitter page or Facebook. Believe me, girls, he's way too young for me, so don't worry! I've never met him, but I do understand to a degree what his life is like right now, as a recognisable teen star," she told Parade.
Thiessen went on to say that she feels fortunate to have made it through the world of teen stardom, adding: "The business is ever-changing, and I don't think it's easy for any kid. Thank God I [survived]. Not every story is that way."
