Having never worked with Miley before, the actor wasn’t sure what to expect. But at the film’s New York premiere, Murray had only wonderful things to say about his costar!
“It was stunning to work with her. All you hear, is … what you hear ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ and then you work with her and realize, ‘OH!’… She’s really a trouper. She came through in a huge way for us.”
It sounds like Murray really took a liking to the pop star — in fact, he’d like to return the favor! He added:
“If she asked me to push start her car, I would do it.”
The 65-year-old was also blown away by Miley-bird’s amazing voice, admitting that he didn’t think she would sound as good as she did!
“When you hear her [on the radio] you go, ‘She’s not even really singing that, that’s all voice activated ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ it’s all tricked out.’ ├óΓé¼┬ª None of that’s true. She’s really got it. She’s really got the pipes.”
In the special, the 23-year-old sings a sultry rendition of Silent Night with former Late Night band leader Paul Shaffer on the piano!
Check out the songstress and the actor — along with the rest of the all-star cast — when A Very Murray Christmas hits Netflix December 4!
