Kurylenko: Malick is wonderful

Terrence Malick is "the most wonderful creature in this world," Olga Kurylenko has said.

The French actress got to work with the Tree Of Life filmmaker on an as-yet-untitled film, which also stars Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Javier Bardem and Rachel Weisz.

"It was wonderful. I love him. I'm passionate about him. He's extremely smart, extremely deep, and profoundly kind and real. It's not a mask," she told

The former Bond Girl added: "He's a wonderful filmmaker, and very shy. If he were to read this, he would say, 'Why would you say this? It's not true!' He's so sweet. He thinks I'm exaggerating, but I'm not."

Olga, who learnt about her role during a car ride, likes his unconventional way of working.

"The way he works totally fit me. You never know what you're doing. It's at the last moment and very spontaneous, and I like that," she said.

"Not knowing what I'm doing is actually totally fine. It scares a lot of actors."

She added: "He likes to go for a drive and talk... and you just take it in and become that character. It gets into you. There's no acting. I wish everybody worked that way. I only want to work with him now. Not to offend others, but you just think, 'Wow, I would love to work with him again'."
