Thor actor Tom Hiddleston has heaped praise on director Steven Spielberg after working with him on the impressive movie War Horse. Tom claims that it is any actors dream to work on a movie with Steven Spielberg and that when you do actually get to work with him, it far exceeds anything you can have expected.
Hiddleston explained, “Do you know, it exceeded it, because I wasn’t prepared for his humility. The thing is, all this sounds so pat, that Steven Spielberg’s a really great guy. He’s a really extraordinary man, because to be at his level, and to have his stature and his power, and his experience, he’s so kind and generous and inclusive and collaborative and yielding. He makes you feel like you’re such an important part of the creative process. You’re never part of some Spielberg factory, it’s an art form for him.”
He added, “He’s still curious, he’s still digging around in his experience of the world, and trying to get to the truth, or tell stories that he finds moving and exciting. And then, of course, on set, he’s an absolute master. And his ability to tell a story visually, that’s his gift. I was saying that some people are gifted with being able to run fast, some people are brilliant cooks, some people can speak five languages and Steven’s gift is he can understand stories. It’s just in him. It’s a very unique ability he has.”
You can currently see Tom Hiddleston appearing in the Steven Spielberg movie War Horse at cinemas and theatres now. Tom Hiddleston will next be appearing on the big screen when he stars in the Joss Whedon directed movie The Avengers, which is set to be released on May 4, 2012.
