WATCH: Jake Gyllenhaal LOVES Sean Paul

Jake Gyllenhaal has come to the defence of Sean Paul, calling him a “genius.”

The actor appeared alongside Tom Holland on Greg James’ Radio 1 breakfast show to promote Spiderman: Far From Home, in which Gyllenhaal plays supervillain Mysterio.

The duo took part in a segment called “Unpopular Opinion”, in which listeners call in to share their point of view on contentious issues.

When listener Brandon called in to argue that “Sean Paul is massively over-rated”, Gyllenhaal leapt to the Jamaican rapper’s defence.

“No, absolutely not. Just hang up on him,” Gyllenhaal said. “There’s not a song he’s on, or a remix that he’s on, that isn’t good.”
