Saving Mr Banks star Colin Farrell has admitted to crying while watching the movie as Emma Thompson's performance was so good.

Speaking to BBC Radio 1's Nick Grimshaw he said, "I did too and I'm in it, so how pathetic is that? I think Emma Thompson just rips you from one side of the room to the other emotionally; there's something particularly raw about what she does in this."

Saving Mr Banks is in cinemas now and sees Thompson play Mary Poppins' creator P.L. Travers with Tom Hanks portraying Walt Disney. Farrell's role in the film is as Travers' father during flashback scenes to her childhood.
