Jesse Eisenberg thinks Mia Wasikowska is "wonderful".

The pair star together in forthcoming movie 'The Double' - which follows a clerk who loses his mind when he suspects his identity has been assimilated by a co-worker - and the 'Social Network' star was very impressed by the actress' versatility. He said: "She is obviously, you know, wonderful.

"The tone of the movie we're doing is so strange. Within any given moment we are on all ends of the emotional spectrum. All the characters in this movie navigate this very strange world of being funny, but real and tragic and whimsical and her character is kind of enigmatic, traffic, but oddly pleasant.

"She is able to kind of find all these different aspects in a way that is totally consistent with the very odd tone."

Jesse isn't the only person to be thrilled to have Mia as a co-star; fellow Australian Nicole Kidman loved working with the young actress in 'Stoker'.

She told Britain's Vogue magazine: "She's deeply intelligent and drop-dead gorgeous. In my opinion, she's the best of her generation."
