Despite having a girlfriend who is one of the most famous pop stars in the world, Joshua Sasse has confessed that he didn't know who Kylie Minogue was before they started dating. The 27-year-old actor made the admission on live radio, just days after Kylie confirmed their romance.
"I'm not really a fan of popular culture so frankly, I just, I really didn't know who she was," said Joshua, speaking on KIIS FM's Kyle & Jackie O.
The Brit and the Australian pop princess met while filming Joshua's TV show Galavant, in which Kylie, 47, made a guest appearance.
"I don't really know who she is," said Joshua. "I'm not really her demographic."
"You've won the lotto there. Did you ever think "Oh, geez, she's lovely?" asked host Kyle Sandilands.
"Um, not really," said Joshua, leaving the radio host duo in hysterics.
Unlike his colleagues, Joshua wasn't too fazed about the Spinning Around singer appearing on his show.
"They were like, 'Aren't you excited?' and I was like, 'Well yeah, but I don't really know who she is. I'm not really her demographic,'" said Joshua, with a laugh.
"I'd feel a lot better if people weren't calling me Mr Minogue," he added.

Earlier this month Kylie confirmed that there was someone special in her life – and admitted that the 20-year age gap didn't bother her.
"Yeah there is some mention of that," Kylie told TV show The Project. "People are pretty much leaving us to get on with it. I think the general consensus is, we kind of look right together. So even though on paper it might not look right, it just is right."
"Even if I try and act cool and natural, it's written all over my face that I am very happy," she added.

Two weeks ago the former Neighbours star hinted that she was dating someone new, as she posted a picture of herself and Joshua at the Rugby World Cup. "HERE WE GOOOOO!!! Come on #Wallabies!!! #worldcup @joshuasasse," she wrote.
Joshua, likewise, has been sharing snaps of his pretty girlfriend on Instagram. "1st day in Melbourne. Nothing cures jet lag like a #puppy," the actor captioned a snap of Kylie relaxing on a sofa.
