Tom Hanks was scarred after filming 'Captain Phillips'
The 57-year-old actor stars as the title character in the new action biopic, and he revealed shooting for scenes in small places on a ship left many of the cast with injuries.
He told Flicks and Bits: "It's a very uncomfortable space. It smells horrible. The air is bad. It's hot, and you are right on top of each other.
"There are a lot of places to bonk your head and crack your knee. We all did that.
"Everybody had all sorts of various scars. And we were in there for a very, very long time."
While the scenes were difficult to shoot and caused practical problems for the actors, Tom insisted despite the enclosed space for filming he didn't feel "claustrophobic".
He added: "I'm not a particularly claustrophobic person, but it was a very small space. There was no other way to do it.
"We built an exact replica and put it on a gimbal, and that's where we shot. Environmentally, quite frankly it does an awful lot of work for you."
