Tom Hardy: Ensemble cast was fabulous

Tom Hardy

Tom Hardy has joked that the all-star cast of his latest big screen movie "joined forces" to create a "clearly fabulous" film.

The actor stars in Lawless which boasts an impressive ensemble cast including Shia LaBeouf, Gary Oldman, Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke and Guy Pearce.

The stars all gave valuable input into the Prohibition-era film, which Tom was thrilled about.

"Every single one of those people and those artists have incredible sensibility, ability, talent and discipline. Each person was obviously different, and the combination of that kind of ensemble was electric and exciting.

"It was without ego.I mean, not completely without ego, we've all got ego because you need it to carve your way through certain situations - it's actually imperative that you have it. But everyone distinctively put their ego down and was like, 'OK, how can we join forces to create something that is clearly fabulous?'" he laughed in an interview with Flicks and Bits.

Tom says despite the big names on set, everyone remained down-to-earth and humble. The British star had a brilliant experience working alongside each actor.

"You were surrounded by quality and humility, and that sounds really cliché, but genuinely it was a working set," he teased.
