Isla Fisher looked like ''The Exorcist'' after being submerged in a water tank while shooting her new film.

The Australian actress plays an escapologist in magic movie 'Now You See Me', and had to perform dangerous stunts on set that saw her shackled in a tank of water.

Isla - who previously spoken out about how one day the trick went ''horribly wrong'' and she almost drowned when her chains became entangled - admits the water scenes left her with wrinkly skin, sore eyes and looking like Regan MacNeil, the possessed character from the 1973 horror film.

In an appearance on UK TV show 'Daybreak' today (20.06.2013), she revealed: ''I was there for three-and-a-half days and I actually had to hold my breath for two and a half minutes [in the tank].

''I came out looking like a prune and my eyes would be totally bloodshot ... like something out of 'The Exorcist'.''

Isla - who is married to 'Borat' star Sacha Baron Cohen - joked she was horrified if she died shooting the scenes she would have a very unattractive corpse.

added: ''All I kept thinking about was that if I drown in here I'll be on the autopsy table totally bloated in a swimming costume ... which is not what how I see myself going...I'd like to go in something a little classier!''

The 37-year-old actress also stars in the film with Jesse Eisenberg, Morgan Freeman, Sir Michael Caine, Mark Ruffalo and Woody Harrelson.
