Moving from one blockbuster hit to the next, Straight Outta Compton star Jason Mitchell is starring in the upcoming film Keanu, which is in theaters today, alongside Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele and Nia Long. We recently sat down with the rising star and asked him what gets him out of that funk from a breakup. His answer may surprise you.
"Starburst jellybeans. As crazy as it may sound, it's like my tranquil place where I sit and I have my candy for a minute and I just space out and it's just me and my candy," he said. "As crazy as it might sound, people who really know me, they're like, 'He's not lying!'"
There you have it, ladies. He's just a simple guy.
"A huge bag of Starburst jellybeans just puts me at peace, so I just take my 15 and my Starburst jellybeans and I carry on," he said.
Check out Jason talk about his jellybean obsession and watch Nia Long gush about her co-stars in the video below:
