Guy Pearce: Hardy is a mountain

Guy Pearce has described Tom Hardy as an “emotional mountain”.

The actor is starring alongside Tom in the new movie Lawless and was full of praise for the British hunk.

Guy admitted it was difficult not to feel intimidated by Tom.

“It’s so brilliant that Tom Hardy is playing the role, because he is the most exciting actor I’ve seen in a long time... And he brings a weight, an integrity and a power to the screen that is incredibly compelling…,” he told website Flicks and Bits. “The first scene that we had together was me feeling like I’m running rings around this man, not being intimidated by him. And that was very difficult, because he’s like a mountain, a mount emotionally and physically. I think that will translate on screen.”

Guy also gushed about his co-star Jessica Chastain.

The Hollywood hunk claimed it was impossible not to bond with the actress because of her friendly and outgoing nature.

“Jessica Chastain is such a natural, it’s completely effortless and therefore disarming. She’s disarming as an actress and she’s disarming as a character on screen. She’s also really warm and open and lovely, I mean, as soon as she saw me she was like, ‘Oh my God, can I give you a hug?!’ I was like, ‘Sure, give me a hug!’" he laughed.
