Cher may have just found her biggest fan in Tom Hanks!

During a Friday appearance on The Graham Norton Show, the two superstars were joined by Oscar winner Julia Roberts and Wonka star Timothée Chalamet. And they all had high praises for their fellow talk show guest Cher, 77.

After Cher joked on the show that she wasn't "a big Cher fan" and didn't watch her own films or listen to her own songs often, Hanks responded, "You're missing out."

"Motion picture perfection — Mamma Mia! 2," Hanks, 67, said of the 2018 film. "When she busts out 'Fernando,' the world stops. Suns clash with the stars. It's perfection!"

After Chalamet, 27, and Roberts, 56, chimed in by mentioning Moonstruck and Silkwood, Hanks then made a proposition to the rest of the talk show guests. "I think we should all go to the theater and watch Cher's movies right now," he joked.

"Let's have a Cher-a-thon!" Roberts added.

Hanks and Roberts — who snapped a few behind-the-scenes photos with Cher — also raved about their love for soccer on the show.

When host Norton asked Roberts about being a fan of Manchester United, the Leave the World Behind actress explained that she's even been to the team's home turf at Old Trafford. "I'm a true fan," she said, before Norton showed off a few photos, including one of her posing with Marcus Rashford and another of her holding a jersey with her name on the back.

"I have three children and when they were really little and started playing soccer and watching it on TV — and I didn't ever realize how exciting it was to watch it on television — and we just got so into it," Roberts, who shares her three children with husband Danny Moder, said. "Somehow Manchester United became our team, the Moder family team."

Hanks also described his love for Aston Villa F.C., a team that he said is "doing quite well this year" despite a few jeers from the studio audience. "Anybody can root for Man United," Hanks said with a grin, before Roberts clapped back, "Oh, that's not cool."

Hanks' fandom for the team came during his "first time" in England, he said, when he spotted the team's name on the BBC and was hooked. "Aston Villa, well that sounds like a lovely little place."

"And then turns out it's in Birmingham. It's a fabulous place. Villa Park is a magnificent stand to go to," he added, before Graham shared an image of him cheering on the team. "And they gave me a jersey that said 'Julia' on the back."

Chalamet described the talk show lineup of himself, Hanks, Roberts and Cher as "a trip."

"Tom's talking about gravity, I'm up here with Cher and Julia Roberts," the Oscar nominee said, before Hanks responded jokingly, "Well, you're in the big time now, get used to it! By the way, go get us some sandwiches, would you?"
