If you've ever wondered who Sean Paul's biggest fan is, look no further. It's Jake Gyllenhaal, hands down.   

The actor and his Spider-Man: Far From Home co-star Tom Holland sat down for an BBC Radio 1 interview with host Greg James, where they played a game called “Unpopular Opinions,” in which listeners call in to submit their thoughts.  

When listener Brandon proclaimed that “Sean Paul is massively overrated," Gyllenhaal was instantly triggered. "Sean Paul makes every song better that he’s in," he exclaimed, defending his unlikely musical hero. "He’s a genius. There’s not a song he’s on or a remix that he’s on that isn’t good."  

He gushed on for another minute and a half: "There’s not a moment he comes on the radio where you’re not like, ‘Come on.’ He makes driving fun. You could be stuck in traffic and he comes on and you want to dance. It doesn’t matter."

In response to the actor's animated devotion, James suggested they close the interview with a Sean Paul song of Gyllenhaal's choice. He decided on Sia's "Cheap Thrills," where he applauded the dancehall artist for "killing every empty beat" with his ad libs.
