Aaron Taylor-Johnson has admitted watching his new film 'Godzilla' brought him to tears because of his co-stars Bryan Cranston and Juliette Binoche's performances
Aaron Taylor-Johnson cried when he watched 'Godzilla'.
The 23-year-old actor stars as military man Lieutenant Ford Brody in the science fiction monster film, but he's confessed he was brought to tears by his co-stars' performances.
He said: "The first 10-15 minutes, the performance from Bryan Cranston and Juliette Binoche, I was trying to suppress and hold back tears.
"I didn't know whether I was allowed to cry, I was like, 'This is a monster movie but I can't really stop this!'"
The 'Anna Karenina' star - who is married to his 'Nowhere Boy' director Sam Taylor-Wood - admits he was hoping to watch the film for the first time in privacy, as he gets embarrassed watching himself on-screen.
He told Collider.com: "I preferred to see it just me and my wife but I can never do that without everyone going, 'OK, so you're going to have a screening with the managers and agents', and they're all behind you and you think, 'I just want to watch this on my own'.
"I feel like I just kind of need to digest it for myself."
Taylor-Johnson also revealed that despite initially being sceptical about starring in a remake of 'Godzilla' when he was approached by the director, he couldn't be more proud of the end result.
He added: "I do find it really hard to watch myself but I think, ultimately, I was able to see it in the bigger picture and I was hugely thrilled and happy.
"I'm super proud of this movie and am so happy I sat down with Gareth [Edwards] on that day and said yes."
