Tom Hanks' News of the World co-star Helen Zengal has never seen any of his movies.

The film follows a Civil War veteran (Tom Hanks) who must return a young girl who was stolen by natives as an infant (Helena Zengel) to her last remaining family.

Tom said that he spent a lot of time with his 12-year-old co-star, quizzing her on the movies he has starred in, but she didn't know a single title.

News of the World was released theatrically by Universal Pictures in the United States on 25 December. The western directed by Paul Greengrass also stars South African actor Neil Sandilands as Uncle Wilhelm Leonberger.
