Oscar-winning star Marlee Matlin is relieved that her nearly lifelong hearing impairment means she doesn’t have to hear gaggles of tween girls squeal for Canadian hearthrob Justin Bieber. She should be glad she can’t hear him sing either, but I digress.

“I am so glad I’m DEAF!” the Children of a Lesser God actress Tweeted from Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards over the weekend. “Every time they mention Justin Bieber or Taylor Lautner, 10,000 girls SCREAM. They are screaming so loud even I CAN HEAR IT!” she joked.

Marlee is mom to a 13-year-old daughter named Isabelle.
