Jones starstruck by idol co-stars

Felicity Jones has admitted she still feels starstruck when meeting co-stars who were her heroes growing up.

The Theory Of Everything actress has a series of films lined up for the coming year which include co-stars such as Sir Ben Kingsley, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Sigourney Weaver, Liam Neeson and Tom Hanks.

She admitted of meeting them on set for the first time: "You're always really nervous because you've grown up watching these people, so it's a little intimidating at first, but I'm just really excited.

"I'm just working with Sigourney Weaver as well, who I absolutely admire and have loved her work."

Felicity added: "It's great, and you get to learn things from them that you can then take to the next film, so it's wonderful."

She will star alongside Sir Ben and Sir Anthony in action thriller Autobahn, Sigourney and Liam in fantasy A Monster Calls, Tom in thriller Inferno, and James Franco and Jonah Hill in drama True Story.

The actress plays Stephen Hawking's first wife Jane alongside Eddie Redmayne in The Theory Of Everything, due out in cinemas on January 1, 2015.
