Nicole and Hugh had a great time working together

Chatting to Marie Claire with Hugh, the star said: "Well, I like you. So that was a really easy part... Because there was something very relaxed, obviously, because I'm Australian and you're British, we have that… I don’t know, it’s just a sense of humour. It’s good chemistry."

Hugh agreed and Nicole continued: "We talked... I trust you. But that's also part of working together, I think, when you really click, then you sort of sit and you do talk and you share things and you open up.

"You're incredibly honest. I'm always like, ‘Hugh, shush, you can't say that.’"
