Tom Hiddleston tests out his Spanish while singing this Mexican classic

Can’t say he didn’t try! Tom Hiddleston attempted to sing in Spanish during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday, March 9. The Kong: Skull Island star dropped by the late night show where he recalled a recent trip to promote his upcoming film. “There was this big premiere and thousands of fans who turned out to say hi, and then on the red carpet, somebody just reached across and handed me this sombrero, which I thought was a huge honour,” the British actor said.

“They sang me this song – Guillermo can you help me out? – they sang me this song, the Mexican fans. I put the sombrero on and they all started singing,” the 36-year-old said. “It’s called El Cielito Lindo.” Jimmy Kimmel’s Mexican-American sidekick Guillermo Rodriguez then proceeded to assist Tom, teaching him the lyrics.
