Costner: I need to articulate

Kevin Costner, Eddie Redmayne and other stars have revealed what directorial notes they get on set.

The actor has been a Hollywood fixture for more than 30 years, and has bagged two Oscars over his career.

Despite his credentials, Kevin isn't immune to getting feedback from directors - but he never takes it to heart.

"When someone says slow down, what they're really saying is: 'Articulate it; think it through.' You know, tell the story," Kevin explained to USA Today.

The news outlet quizzed celebrities on the red carpet at last night's SAG Awards, asking about the best and worst notes they have received from moviemakers.

British actor Eddie Redmayne may have stormed the awards, picking up best actor for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, but that doesn't mean he always gets it right on set.

"Faster. That's quite a regular one. Louder," he laughed.

His Theory of Everything co-star Felicity Jones also shared her feedback, and likened it to popular Disney movie Frozen.

"Let it go, always, because I get so nervous and self-conscious and that is always the best note. [Like Frozen], let it go, exactly," she smiled.

Another British star to open up was Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams.

The 17-year-old is famous for playing Arya Stark in the fantasy series, but admits she doesn't always understand the comments directors make.

"When people tell me to stop acting, that's a weird one," she divulged.

Tony Revolori shot to fame as bellboy Zero in Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, but confesses he wasn't always in Wes' good books.

"With Wes, it's either speed it up or slow it down. And I never got the 'speed it up'. He was J.K. Simmons. You know, that movie was actually inspired by Wes' direction of me," Tony joked, referencing J.K.'s movie Whiplash, where the actor plays an unhinged teacher.
