He said: “We have an amazing scene. We undress and do some sort of Viking acid and howl at the moon together.
“And oh my god, if you have to be naked and howl at the moon, he’s a great person to do that.”
Set in Iceland at the turn of the century, the film follows a Norse prince as he seeks revenge for the death of his father.
Hawke also spoke about his fear of streaming, saying he remains concerned about the future of entertainment.
He told GQ Hype, “I get scared when things get less director-driven. I’m scared of streaming, I can’t stand the word content.
“I’m beginning to feel like we’re inventing a world like Wall-E, where people drink smoothies and just press play. I don’t want to be part of it.”

Hawke has recently branched out into the Marvel Universe after starring in the upcoming Moon Knight miniseries.
The involvement of Oscar Isaac and Mohamed Diab made Hawke feel “that’s the way it was meant to be” and encouraged Hawke to take on the role of religious fanatic and cult leader Arthur Harrow.
Hawke also said he hopes to bring some of his own artistic influence to the project.
“Oscar (Isaac) and I come from a kind of similar way of thinking about it. Simply put, we both aspire to be old-school New York actors.
“Oscar loves to rehearse. And he really likes to think about things. We’re more like carpenters,” he said.
Hawke convinced producer Kevin Feige to allow him to take a more traditional rehearsal and reading approach to the process, adding, “I know Oscar and I both feel better about it. We worked harder on it. And we were able to do more of what we wanted to do.”
