Fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff has revealed working with Taylor Swift has helped him become a better musician.
The pair co-wrote ‘Sweeter than Fiction’ for the film One Chance, which is based on Britain’s Got Talent winner Paul Potts’ rise to fame from amateur opera singer to global hit sensation.
"She's just like the most incredible writer and singer and performer," Antonoff said in a recent interview, reported by Huffington Post. "She feels completely unaffected by all the stuff happening around her, so working with her was like the most amazing experience.

“It made me better at what I do just watching her process."
The 29-year-old American hunk also revealed he and the ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ hitmaker decided to work together after he told her about a song he was writing that featured the snare drum.
Antonoff added that the collaboration worked so well because there was "no label involved, no one put us together".

Meanwhile Antonoff, who is dating ‘Girls’ star Lena Dunham, is pleased with how his band has dealt with their massive success by not turning to drugs.
"I'm still alive, I'm still in a relationship, I haven't (messed) everything up yet, but it's not easy," he confessed.
"It's tough to be away — it's that simple. You miss things. A year ago it was real (messed) up, it was hard. There was no way you can learn how to be in that schedule and be under those kinds of pressures."
Adding, "I think that we went through a lot and I think we got through it and none of us turned to drugs or none of us ended as shady people."
