The Grammy winner, 38, was talking to E!’s Giuliana Rancic about getting the chance to work alongside costars such as Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone when he accidentally gave the Harry Potter author a shout-out.

“Most of your scenes … are with Ryan Gosling … what did you learn from him?” Rancic asked the singer, who plays jazz musician Keith in the Oscar-nominated musical, which he also executive produced.

“I was impressed with him because he had to look like [he played the piano] … and then I was just humbled to be in the presence of such greatness,” Legend said. “I mean, he’s obviously an experienced actor. Emma is an experienced actor. We got J.K. Rowling,” he added, before quickly correcting himself. “Simmons — not Rowling — and so many great people in the film and I’m just happy to be a part of it.”
