Spiders. . . everybody is scared of spiders.
Especially the big hairy ones...
And whoever mentioned the DICTATOR as in Sacha Baron Cohen...that made me laugh too

“A lot of directors in the world today attempt to bring character and spectacle together, and fail. And Chris is in the position where he’s a general among leading players who vie for that position of director… not just a huge spectacle, pushing and pioneering with visual effects etc, but also on a simple “warts and all” level, which is, for me, my bread-and-butter, with character analysis, armchair psychology, and showing people the terror in relationships.
And he’s incredibly sucessful as well. He’s got lots and lots of money to do it, which is also a huge draw because there are certain things you can achieve with that money that lesser talent would splurge up the wall in a way that wouldn’t be anywhere near as exciting as what Chris does. For example, CGI over visual effects. He’ll prefer to build something as opposed to have it painted on a notepad. And the steely resolve and scrupulous effort he has to get things done properly is incredibly exciting because you attract people who want to challenge themselves.
I feel really grateful to be part of it, part of the Nolan team, because I know that everyone on that floor will be ready at some level to challenge themselves to do something they haven’t done before. Very rarely do you meet someone on the set who is lazy.”
He has such a respect for Nolan. When you have an amazing director, the cast pushes themselves that much more:-) Reminds me also of when Hardy was on Chatty Man a year or two ago, mentioned that Nolan doesnt even have a cell phone, and that he prefers hard copies of things, he wants to see and observe everything in person rather than it being sent to him in pictures or email.That says a lot about the type of person Nolan is:-) And...LOVE the photo..
And as far as the steak scene...hmm.. I guess we will just have to wait until July 20:-) Who knows if it is real or not, but if it is real, Im sure Nolan and Hardy would make it an unforgettable scene. Also, Im not sure how they would work taking the mask off, but if they do I would imagine just the bottom part of his mask would unlatch so you would basically just see his mouth and no other part of his face, but who knows:-)
