But now star of the movie Charlie Hunnam has defended the football legend’s skills, saying David worked hard for the role, having even had training beforehand.

Charlie even suggested the 42-year-old was good enough to give acting a real go if he wanted.

Speaking to ITV on the red carpet for the premiere of the film, Charlie said: ‘He’d worked with an acting coach, he was only there as a friend of Guy’s but it became very clear how he’s enjoyed so much success in his life. He’s a perfectionist.

‘He is a fabulous actor and a real pleasure to be with.’

David is pretty proud of the role, and took to Instagram to give fans a look at what went on behind the scenes to transform him into the gruesome Trigger.  A lot of make up and some dodgy teeth, by the looks of things.

He wrote: ‘It was a pleasure to work with the @kingarthurmovie team on such an amazing film #KingArthur.’

“SUPER” Man from U.N.C.L.E – Henry Cavill Was Once Called a Fatty!

Posted on August 13th, 2015 at 6:48 am by    

The “Man from U.N.C.L.E” star Henry Cavill has told how his peers mocked him in school because he was an overweight kid. He was definitely not as popular in school as he is now. Oo-er!

The British star said “I was teased, and it was hard. Even though for some it may be malicious, I think it’s just kids being kids,” adding that he has no hard feelings against those who made fun of him.

The experience has taught Cavill to “read people” and to remain grounded despite his fame and star persona.

“I became very much an observer, and that taught me an awful lot about people. Of course it’s flattering when people say that [he is good-looking], but you’ve got to keep yourself aware of the fact that it’s all perspective.

“There’s one group of people saying that and there’s one group of people who may not feel the same way,” he said.

Cavill gained popularity as Superman/Clark Kent in “Man of Steel.”

The film was one of the highest-grossing Superman films and went on to earn $668 million. He is reprising the role in the coming “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.” He will be seen taking on Ben Affleck’s Batman.

The 32-year-old actor shared his experience of working with Affleck. He said the “Gone Girl” actor is “fantastic” and has a great sense of humor.

Cavill’s new film, “Man from U.N.C.L.E,” is a spy comedy directed by Guy Ritchie. The film reportedly does not have any intimate scenes. Cavill is playing Napoleon Solo, an agent of U.N.C.L.E, or United Network Command for Law and Enforcement.

He teams up with Armie Hammer‘s character Illya Kuryakin to stop a criminal organization from proliferating nuclear weapons.

The film also stars Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki, Jared Harris and Hugh Grant. It opens this Friday.

On Set… Charlie Hunnam as King Arthur on ‘Knights Of The Roundtable!

Posted on June 3rd, 2015 at 7:13 am by    

Charlie Hunnam is getting ready for his upcoming role in Guy Ritchie’s movie, “Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur”.

The film is a re-imagining of the classic English legend and will center on a young King Arthur, played by British hottie, Hunnam.

The movie follows Arthur, who doesn’t know about his royal bloodline and is running a gang in the alleys of Londonium.

After discovering Excalibur, Arthur finds himself in a fight against Vortigern played by Jude Law, who murdered his parents, with a young Guinevere, played by Astrid Berges-Frisbey.

According to the old stories, Guinevere falls in love with Arthur’s most trusted knight, Lancelot, in one of the oldest love triangles on record.

However, it still isn’t clear if Ritchie will follow the old stories in regards to Arthur and Guinevere’s relationship or go in a new direction. Either way, the new movie is only the first in a planned series, so there will be plenty of time to develop all of those complicated relationships and storylines.

Meanwhile, filming of the coming movie is currently underway in Wales. With that in mind, Ritchie posted a few-behind-the-scenes images of the cast and crew on his Instagram account. One of the photos offer a first look at Hunnam as the legendary King Arthur. The picture shows Hunnam on set with Ritchie, who captioned the photo with “First day on KORT.”

Hunnam recently spoke with Men’s Journal and he opened up about being a fan of Ritchie and what the role of King Arthur meant to him.

“I’m thrilled man. I’ve been watching Guy’s movies since he first came on the scene, and I think you could say that the King Arthur story is why I got into acting in the first place.

“I fell in love with the story and would watch any of the movies about the story that played when I was a kid.”

Australian star Eric Bana is set to play alongside Hunnam as Arthur’s father, Uther Pendragon.

“Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur”, the first film in the six film series, is expected to be released in theaters in July, 2016.

A spokesperson for Guy Ritchie said: “We can confirm that Guy and Jacqui are the proud parents of a new baby girl. Mother and baby are doing well.”

The proud parents have been dating since spring 2010, 44-year-old Ritchie, and model Jacqui, 30, already have son Rafael, 14 months.

Last month the Sherlock Holmes supremo, who was once married to pop star Madonna decided he was ready once again to head down the aisle when he asked Jacqui to be his wife, and the pair became engaged.

A friend said: “They are both utterly delighted at the birth of their second child. The fact that’s they now have a girl is an added bonus – and Guy is particularly pleased about this. He always wanted a boy and a girl.

“Everything went to plan and the pair of them couldn’t be happier now.”

No other details regarding the birth or the baby have yet been revealed, but I’m told Guy is thrilled with the arrival of his daughter.

We wish them both the very best!

Rosie H-W Reunites with Action-Hero Boyf’ Jason Statham

Posted on May 15th, 2012 at 8:18 am by    

With their hectic schedules often leading them to spend weeks apart, supermodel-turned-actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley reunited with her hunky action-hero boyfriend, Jason Statham at the weekend.

The loved-up British celebrity couple both looking happy and relaxed, dressed is casual attire headed hand-in-hand to Taverna Tony’s restaurant in Malibu, for a spot of lunch, and to spend some much needed quality time together.

It’s been non-stop lately for Statham, who has been busy filming three movies, due for release later this year  – Parker opposite Jennifer LopezSafe, as well as The Expendables 2 with an all star studded line-up that includes Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Liam Hemsworth.

As for Rosie, while hoping in-demand director Guy Ritchie will cast her in a plum role opposite Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law in the next ‘Sherlock Holmes’ installment. She too has been busy concentrating on her hugely successful modeling career after receiving not-so-hot reviews for her acting debut in Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

However, I am told, the catwalk queen is determined to prove she is more than just a pretty face and has a bunch of potential ‘lead-role’ projects in the pipeline.

There is also the possibility that Jason will pick-up the phone to Ritchie and pull a few strings for his lovely girlfriend, as Statham starred in Snatch back in 2000 – a film directed by Ritchie.

So, it shouldn’t be too difficult for him to make that one happen for his delicious Rosie… Um, one would expect anyway!

Check out the official trailer for The Expendables 2 – In Theaters August 17th.
