Beautiful Creatures star Alice Englert has admitted to having a crush on her co-star Jeremy Irons.
The New Zealand-born actress, who plays Lena Duchannes in the fantasy romance, told Digital Spy that Irons was one of the actors she was most looking forward to working with on Beautiful Creatures.
"I always had a crush on Jeremy Irons before we made the film," she said. "I say that like it was past tense - I do have a crush on Jeremy Irons!
"And Jeremy is just a piece of meat?" quipped co-star Alden Ehrenreich. "I'm sure he knows this - I'm pretty transparent!" Englert added.

Asked about what attracted him to Beautiful Creatures, a film tipped by many to be the new Twilight, Ehrenreich said: "I loved my character. You know when you meet someone and have chemistry with them? I felt like I had chemistry with my character and I understood his mind and ambitions.
"It's just a human story and there's so much comedy in it, there's so much humour."
Beautiful Creatures opens in UK cinemas on February 13 and the US on Valentine's Day.
