"She would boss me around," he told Sunrise on Tuesday, "We had about seven or eight year's rehearsal time to play these characters, if we didn't have any chemistry we'd be in trouble," he said.

The lovebirds will star alongside each other for the first time in the new flick, which is based on the real-life events of 12 men sent into Afghanistan immediately after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centre.
