Of his new co-star, he added: "She's just the best. She says 'darling' a lot. But I say 'darling' too as a joke, so it works perfectly. This friendship works very well."She's a good human being and a really sweet lady," he continued. "Don't get me wrong, she's a diva. I said to her, 'Do you own flats?' She's like, 'Darling, no.' Okay. That's why she has dope calf muscles! (She has) the greatness of a diva but (she is also) the regular, chill girl that you just want to chill with."
