When great British actors reach a certain age Americans, er, media types tend to believe they must have worked together at some point during their careers. In the West End, on the BBC or in some movie.  At the least, they were in one of those "Harry Potter" movies, right?  Well, not really.

As Helen Mirren notes in this exclusive new featurette from Fox Searchlight, working with Anthony Hopkins for the first time was one of appealing aspects of starring in "Hitchcock." The two Oscar winners had never worked together before in any medium, but that changed in Sacha Gervasi' drama.

You can find out more of Hopkins and Mirren's thoughts on teaming up together in the video embedded at the top of this post.

"Hitchcock" is now playing in limited release across the nation.
