For Oscar winner Sir Ben Kingsley, it was Scorsese's laugh that he enjoyed the most.
"Hearing him laugh at something I did ... so beautiful," he deadpanned.
Funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen appreciated the fact that the director was so ready and willing to collaborate with him.
"He let me really collaborate ... any weird idea I came up with, he was really ready to shoot it."
And what about all the award buzz he's been generating as of late?
"Never really been an ambition," he jokes. "Nice for everyone else though."
