Going mano a mano with Leonardo DiCaprio in The Great Gatsby isn't nearly as nerve-racking for Joel Edgerton as sharing the screen with some eight-legged costars.
In his new thriller Wish You Were Here, which hit theaters this past weekend, Edgerton is among a group of friends vacationing in Cambodia when one disappears.
"I have a massive fear of spiders," says Edgerton. "In one scene I had six tarantulas crawling on me! Luckily they had be de-fanged, had they not I don't think I would have been able to do the scene."
When he's not fighting his fear of spiders, here's five more things the hot Australian star, 38, gets up to:

Having recently told Katie Couric during an interview that she does have a boyfriend, Jessica Chastain made what is apparently her first public appearance with him Friday night, at the Women in Film 6th annual Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party.
Arriving arm and arm together at Fig & Olive in Los Angeles, the Zero Dark Thirty Best Actress nominee and Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo sipped Perrier-Jouët Champagne in the main room before Chastain spotted her costar from last year's The Help, Viola Davis, and Davis's husband.
Chastain, 35, hugged and kissed the 31-year-old Passi, making it clear to all who saw them that the two are, in fact, a couple.

This year's Oscars may not take place until Feb. 24, but the ceremony's host, Seth MacFarlane, already started earning his salary Thursday morning – by joining Emma Stone to announce the nominees for the 85th annual Academy Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' headquarters in Beverly Hills.
And the name that kept coming up: Lincoln, which reaped the lion's share number of nominations, 12, including those for Best Picture, Best Director Steven Spielberg, Best Actor Daniel Day-Lewis and Supporting Actress Sally Field.
Other highly recognized films were Life of Pi, with 11 nominations; Les Misérables, with nine; and Argo, with seven, though, surprisingly, not one for its director Ben Affleck.
