Ray Winstone played pranks on his castmates while filming 'Snow White and the Huntsman'.

The 'Hugo' actor stars as Gort - one of the eight dwarves in the big screen re-imagining of the popular fairytale 'Snow White' - and Ray, 55, revealed he couldn't resist winding up his co-stars, especially Sir Bob Hoskins (Muir).

He told ShortList magazine: ''We used to f***ing do one another up all the time. Old Bob used to get it a lot. We'd wind him up by saying, 'You know they want us in full make-up and costume for every premiere, Bob?'

''He believed us! He'd have the hump all day: 'I'm not f***ing doing that!'''

Eddie Marsan, 43, who stars as Duir, admitted he and the other actors playing The Dwarves - Ian McShane (Beith), Nick Frost (Nion), Toby Jones (Coll), Johnny Harris (Quert) and Gus (Brian Gleeson) - also couldn't resist teasing screen veteran Bob, 69.

He explained: ''The wind-ups became an art form. We'd stand behind Bob when he was having his lunch and One Of Us would say, 'I told my agent I'll do Budapest but I won't do Tashkent.' Bob would say, 'What you on about?' We'd tell him, 'It's in the contract, Bob - every red carpet we've got to be in full dwarf get-up'. He'd go, 'Get my f***ing agent on the phone! I'm not having it!'''

'Snow White and the Huntsman' also stars Kristen Stewart as the titular heroine, Chris Hemsworth as Eric the huntsman and Charlize Theron as Rowenna, the Evil Queen.
