The actor said that it was really embarrassing for him after he found out that Harry Styles, who was once a part of the boyband One Direction, is actually a professional singer. He concluded by apologizing to Styles and telling him he’s “like really good.”

We’re like, ‘Man, I got to tell you something, you’re a singer. You’re like a karaoke singer. You’re really good.’ He goes, ‘Thanks, man, thank you. I really appreciate that.'”

He’s a professional singer.’ Oh my god, now I feel like a jerk. He’s a professional singer. And we’re trying to tell him he’s a good singer. And I, like, feel so dumb. So I just really want to say, I’m sorry Harry Styles, but you’re really good at karaoke, man. Seriously, like, really good.”
