Sharing the courtside luxury were Leonardo DiCaprio and Denzel Washington after his Unstoppable premiere. David was back at the Staples Center after bringing his sons to see a Justin Bieber concert there on Monday. Justin was likewise out again, sitting next to his friend Jaden Smith. David also opened up to Ryan Seacrest about his boys getting older, showing his underwear on the soccer field last weekend, and his fondness for briefs. David said:
- On changing his shorts on the field: "We're not meant to, but I'd cut my finger at the start of the game and I kept wiping it on my shorts. The rules are that if you have any blood on your shirt or your shorts you have to change them, and since I had it all over my shorts I had to change them . . . to be honest the crowd was pretty quiet, so why not excite them a little bit?"
- On wearing tighty whiteys: "Yes, I do . . . they're comfortable!"
- On having "the talk" with Brooklyn: "We've had it with Brooklyn . . . it was more Victoria than me. I had to walk out of the room, because Brooklyn was looking out of the corner of his eye, like laughing, and I'm going, I need to get out of here because it's a serious talk!"
