Often for rising stars competition gets in the way of friendship, but that’s not the case for two of Hollywood’s hottest new leading men The Fifth Estate’s Benedict Cumberbatch and Only Lovers Left Alive’s Tom Hiddleston.
“Benedict is one of my best friends, we live around the corner from each other in London”, reveals Tom who spoke with ET Canada while he was in Toronto promoting his new vampire love story during the Toronto International Film Festival. “We met on Spielberg’s War Horse,”; he continues “We spent a summer with Mr Spielberg and became friends for life.”;
With Benedict’s Star Trek: Into Darkness, 12 Years a Slave and The Fifth Estate, some are calling this The Year of the Cumberbatch and Tom agrees. “I think Benedict’s life is crazier than mine in some regard.”; But even with his own hectic schedule, Tom says they find much to relate to. “It’s nice to talk about stuff and share things. You have these exciting and incredible experience and nice to have someone who is going through to chat with and ask how’s it for you?”;
Catch more of Tom’s interview Monday night on ET Canada starting at 7:30 pm ET/PT.
