John Legend makes his major acting debut in the musical La La Land, and as one might expect, he’s singing, but he’s not playing the piano. Instead, his co-star Ryan Gosling is the piano virtuoso, and Legend says he was pretty jealous of his skills.

“He had a great coach, and by the time we were on set, he was already playing like a virtuoso. I was impressed; I was kinda jealous,” he joked.

Legend, of course, pulled out all the stops to prepare for his character, including learning to play the guitar and working with an acting coach.

“I got a coach and we worked really hard on it, and made sure every scene I was really prepared, and approached every scene with humility, knowing that I hadn’t done something like this before,” admitted Legend.

Now the film, also starring Emma Stone, is garnering tons of Oscar buzz, and the Academy Award-winner couldn’t be more excited.

“If the film won an Oscar, it would be the first for some of my cast mates and Damien. I’ve already got one,” he laughed.” No, I’m so proud already of this film and all the work we put in and really happy for people to see it.”
