Lewis Hamilton couldn't help but get starstruck when he worked on Cars 2 with Sir Michael Caine.
The racing ace, who plays a mobile version of himself in the film, appears alongside the British icon in the eagerly anticipated sequel.
"I'm a huge fan of Michael Caine. I'm going to have to pinch myself several times to even imagine that I'm in a movie with someone that I watched in movies for years and years growing up," he said.
Lewis, who had a lot of input designing his car, said he's a "huge" fan of Pixar films.
"I grew up watching all of them including Cars. I've always wanted to do a role in a movie so it was just a dream. I feel so privileged to be a part of it," he added.
:: Disney/Pixar's Cars 2 opens in UK cinemas on July 22 in Disney Digital 3D and IMAX 3D.
