Jeremy Irvine

Jeremy Irvine has laughed off the idea that he is the new Christian Bale.

Irvine has burst onto the big screen with the Steven Spielberg directed movie War Horse.

The movie marked his big screen debut and he looks set to be someone to watch this year.

Speaking to the Press Association the actor said: "Oh come on! Stop it.

"That's very sweet. Christian Bale is one of my favourite actors so I am hugely flattered. But it's ridiculous."

War Horse has been a hit with both the critics and at the box office and looks set to battle it out at the Oscars next month.

Irvine will be back on the big screen later this year as he is set to play Pip in the big screen adaptation of Great Expectations.

War Horse is out now.
