“I met Alex before at different NBC events when I first met Jennifer. It’s nice to see a guy who is supportive of a very strong, powerful, talented woman,” the This Is Us star, 41, tells Us Weekly exclusively in the latest issue.
The Emmy-nominated star also told Us that he couldn’t be happier to work with the “incredible” 49-year-old singer.
“For everything that Jennifer has and is in terms of her music career, dancing show, film career, TV show, philanthropy – everything – when you are actually just talking to her, she’s a very easy going, normal human being that’s lovely to be around,” he said. “When you’re there on set, she‘s very present. She’s not somewhere else. She’s right there.”
