Daniel Craig has revealed he got starstruck by his Cowboys And Aliens co-star Harrison Ford.
It's hard to imagine the Bond star losing his cool over a fellow thespian, but he freely admitted: "Of course I was excited. Yeah, a little bit. It's Harrison Ford, for Christ's sake!"
The two action stars join forces in Jon Favreau's film about ridding a small Western town of an alien invasion, and the British actor admitted working with the Hollywood superstar has been a childhood dream come true.
"Harrison's lovely. First and foremost, he's an actor and he loves the job," he said.
"He loves getting on with it and the collaborative process... So once you get over the fact he's a screen legend, you find out he just wants to get on with the work," he added.
The 43-year-old, who married actress Rachel Weisz in June, didn't take long to get into character, which he based on the "silence of Clint Eastwood".
"The cowboy just comes out. We're in a desert, I'm wearing chaps, a gun around my waist, cowboy boots, a hat and I'm riding on a horse. I couldn't have been happier," he continued.
