Matt Damon - Matt Damon In Awe Of Lion

Subscribe to Matt Damon alerts

Matt Damon found it "amazing" working with a lion.

The actor filmed close to live animals in 'We Bought A Zoo' and was left in awe by scenes he shot so close to the jungle animal, which had a zebra in its sights.

He said: "I'd never seen a lion up close and when you look at their eyes they look like they're 1,000 years old. They look like you can see into their soul, it was really amazing.

"What they did to get him to look my way was they walked a zebra about 100 yards behind me and The Lion looks up, boom, like that.

"When you see that you just step back, it's so impressive. Especially to be between the lion and the zebra. It was like, holy s**t. It was really, really amazing. I've never seen anything like it."

Matt is currently working on 'Elysium' - which is due for release n 2013 - and says he has "high hopes" for the film.

He said: "I play a guy who's been in and out of prison and is very different from any role I've ever played.

"I have very, very high hopes for the movie. I think it's going to be really good."
