Ben Kingsley - Sir Ben Kingsley Broke Down In Tears After Watching Martin Scorsese's Hugo
British actor Sir Ben Kingsley was so moved when he first watched Martin Scorsese's first 3D movie Hugo, he broke down in tears.
The Oscar-winner, who plays Georges Melies in the children's adventure film alongside Jude Law and Chloe Moretz, watched the movie at a private screening before it premiered in London on Monday night (28Nov11).
And Kingsley was so taken aback by the film, about an orphaned boy who lives in the wall of a train station in 1930s Paris, he started crying within minutes.
He tells the Press Association, "I was the only person in the cinema and, after 90 seconds, I was in tears at the sheer beauty of it.
"All Martin's films have a great tenderness, even when they're dealing with violence. People love each other, they die for each other, they're highly emotional."
