Rachel Weisz: 'Tony Gilroy Is Chaotic'
Rachel Weisz found the set of 'The Bourne Legacy' to be chaotic.
She said: ''Tony Gilroy, he's a very unusual director. I've never come across someone like him, in that he's incredibly bright, he's got a very strong intellect, he's a wordsmith, he's got a great sense of control and order. All the thing that you need to direct.
''But he also loves chaos and chaos in the acting, and I think that's how you get a raw, edgy, kinetic acting style which feels like reality, rather than safe, stagy kind of acting. I've never come across someone who has that combination, Tony has a real rock 'n' roll streak in him, a raw edginess.''
However, Rachel - who plays research scientist Marta in the film - does admit she tried to delay doing stunts for as long as possible.
She joked: ''If you saw me asking lots of questions on set, it was probably because I was incredibly anxious (laughs), and I was trying to just delay it. You just have to do it, it's like learning a dance ... well, on the back of a motorcycle you just experience it and every time you do it, it becomes a little less scary.
