And in A Passage to India, there's an expedition to this cultural landmark called the Marabar Caves by elephant," he continued.

"We were holding a table with a cushion on top of it, and also a table cloth to cover our faces," Hiddleston confessed to laughter, "because our bodies are the elephant."
