Theroux has now shared more of his musical favourites while taking on BBC Radio 6 Music’s 6 Questions interview.

Talking about his current musical obsessions, he said: “If I’m left to my own devices, I’ll find myself listening to Frank Ocean a lot. I’ve got this weird soft spot for Post Malone for some reason.

“I don’t feel bad about it. I like Post Malone. It is what it is.”

Going on to talk about the music currently on rotation in his house, he shouted out a host of rappers introduced to him by his children.

“At the moment I’m a hostage to a lot of the music played by my kids on the smart speaker at home,” he said. “A lot of it is rap, a lot of American rap, and also grime. So Stormzy, Skepta, Donae’o, Offset, Lil Pump, Rich The Kid. A lot of the American guys.


Speaking about the best gigs he’s ever been to, he referenced a White Stripes gig at London’s Alexandra Palace, saying “that was superb. I think that was the first time I kind of clicked with The White Stripes, so it was memorable for that.
