Michael Sheen - Michael Sheen looking forward to Madding Crowd

Michael Sheen says 'Far from the Madding Crowd' will be a ''beautiful film''.

The British actor recently finished filming the Thomas Vinterberg directed movie - based on the Thomas Hardy novel - in which he stars as Farmer William Boldwood, and says he can't wait to see the results, shot across the English countryside.

Speaking at Whole Planet Foundation Pre-Grammy party at The Village Recording Studios in Los Angeles, he told BANG Showbiz: ''Working with Carey Mulligan was amazing, the whole cast was fantastic. I hadn't really read a lot of Hardy before we did this film, but this was an early one. It gets a bit bleak later, with 'Jude the Obscure' that's kind of tough, but this was great.

''We spent a lot of time out in the countryside filming it, so I think it's going to be a beautiful film.''

Michael added he was pleased to team up with Thomas for the first time, and is rooting for his current film to win an Academy Award on March 2.

He added: ''We finished filming in early November and it was brilliant working with Thomas Vinterberg. 'The Hunt' is up for the best Foreign Language Oscar, and he's a fantastic guy.

''It was his first time doing a period film and working on something he hadn't written, I guess, so it was really interesting. He bought a really different perspective to it.''

The party featured performances from Grammy nominees La Santa Ceilia and The Parlotones among others, and benefitted the Whole Planet Foundation - set up by organic retailer Whole Foods - which aims to help people work their way out of poverty through providing them microloans in 58 countries worldwide.
