Jason Statham's Expendables Awe

Jason Statham felt like a "p***y" on the set of 'The Expendables'.

The British actor - who plays Lee Christmas in the Sylvester Stallone-directed action thriller - admits he was not feeling confident when he joined the cast, but confesses the cast were all great to him.

He said: "It was the first time - ever - that I've turned up on set and felt like a p***y.!

Discussing the cast - which consisted of Dolph Lundgren, Bruce Willis and Mickey Rourke - Jason said: "Only Sly could bring all those legends together. It's strange to know they could tear you apart with their bare hands, but they are all so friendly - great mates to have in your back pocket."

Despite often playing the hard-man in action movies, Jason reveals he is looking forward to working on 'The Killer Elite' with Clive Owen and Robert De Niro.

He told GQ magazine: "Those guys you can really bounce off - improvise - do something with a little more depth.

"And Bobby De Niro - it doesn't get much better than that. Most of the time I'll have hairdressers cast opposite me. Now it's Oscar winners."
