Kirsten Dunst has revealed she was nervous and and 'even a little scared' to work with Lord of the Rings star Viggo Mortensen.

The pair will star together in upcoming thriller The Two Faces of January and Dunst told Harper's Bazaar, "He's one of those actors... The first time I met him he was very reserved. It was in an elevator. I was like, 'Hi'. He was like, 'Oh, hi'.

"I learned later he was very shy. So I was nervous, even a little scared, to work with him. I thought, 'This is going to be intense'."

She added, "Then I got the whole other side, which I don't think many people know. He should do comedy, I've told him that. I laughed so much with Viggo – I'm sure he wouldn't be happy with people knowing how fun he is."

The Two Faces of January is set for release on May 16 and tells the story of a con-man, his wife and a stranger trying to flee a foreign country after getting embroiled in a police officer's murder.
