Morgan Freeman’s legendary voice faced its biggest test yet as he sat down with Vanity Fair for a reading of Justin Bieber’s hit “Love Yourself.” Anything that comes out of the actor’s mouth tends to take on a dramatic tone, but would that transfer to the lyrics of a breakup song from The Biebs?

Based on his eye rolls and confused glances at the camera, Freeman isn’t the biggest Bieber fan in the world, but his voice does pass the test as he successfully gives lines like “You still hit my phone up and baby I’m moving on” the weightiness of powerful life-changing proclamations.
