Actress Margot Robbie has revealed she's a massive Hozier fan.
The Australian star admitted that she couldn't contain her joy when she found out that the Bray singer had singed on for The Legend of Tarzan soundtrack.
Robbie, who plays Jane in the movie, said that she's a massive fan of the singer and his involvement in the blockbuster was "the most exciting thing in the world".
Speaking to RTE TEN, she said: "When I heard Hozier was doing the song for this I could have died. I am a massive fan of him."
Hozier penned the song, Better Love, for the movie in 2014 - the same year his debut album was released.
"Funnily enough, it was when we were shooting Tarzan in 2014 that I was absolutely obsessed with his album for the first time and we went to his gig while we were shooting and it's just so weird that he's now doing the song for it. It's the most exciting thing in the world," the 25-year-old said.
Her co-star, Alexander Skarsgard, backed up her claims and told RTE that Robbie would play Hozier's music in her trailer in between takes on set.
"That was before he really like, took off," Skarsgard told RTÉ TEN. "That was the first time I heard of him, through Margot on set. She was blasting his music in her trailer and running around on set.
"And I would live vicariously through Margot because I didn't have a social life for nine months because I was on a very strict diet with training you know, so every Monday I would ask 'What was your weekend like?' and one Monday she was like 'We went to Hozier!'"
"He's the nicest guy in the whole world. I love him," Robbie added.
