With a collaboration with Christina Perri and a US tour in the works, Jason Mraz took some time out of his rehearsals to talk to Alice@97.3/San Francisco about his love for movies and movie popcorn. In fact, Mraz said one of his favorite things to do while on the road is watch movies.

“I’m a huge fan of the documentary. The Frozen Planet, Blue Planet. I love being able to explore the world and learn about the world through documentaries,” he said. “A lot of music documentaries as well but I also don’t kick out a Hollywood blockbuster either.”

Mraz even admitted he is a sucker for any movie he sees. “I’ll applaud almost any film. I’m like, ‘Gosh, look at all the names in those credits. Good job everybody . . . the movie wasn’t that great but you guys did a great job.'”

In the end, the “I’m Yours” singer admitted that the biggest lure for the movie theater is never the movie but the movie theater popcorn. He is a “junkie” that prefers his snack with no butter or salt and his big secret is to ask for an extra box, pour the popcorn in it then ask for the free refill right then.

“You get to walk away with twice as much popcorn and you won’t have to go back later for your refill.”
