Edgerton amazed by Cumberbatch fans
Benedict Cumberbatch's hordes of fans followed him around while he was shooting Black Mass, Joel Edgerton has revealed.
The Australian actor admitted that one die-hard supporter even stayed on their trail during the whole shoot.
"Benedict's a wonderful guy and a wonderful actor, and he's got this crazy legion of fans out there," he said.
"There was this one girl who would follow everywhere we were shooting. I would draw the curtain and look down, and there she is again. He's a bit of a sex symbol, right?"
The British actor plays William 'Billy' Bulger - the brother of Boston crime leader Whitey Bulger (played by Johnny Depp) - in Scott Cooper's biopic, with Joel cast as former FBI agent John Connolly.
Joel, who stars in Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods And Kings, revealed he took home a little souvenir from the set.
"I stole the ring from that movie. I can't believe I'm admitting this. Well, it just wouldn't come off on the last day," he joked.
The 40-year-old described the film as a "special" one, saying: "We had a great time. Black Mass is a great experience and it's going to be a very special film. I can't wait."
But he admitted he has yet to reunite with his co-star, saying: "I tried to contact Benedict. He's one of the busiest men in the world!"
:: Exodus: Gods And Kings is in cinemas now, with Black Mass scheduled to be released in September 2015.
