Rachel Weisz - Rachel Weisz: 'Tony Gilroy Is Chaotic'

Rachel Weisz found the set of 'The Bourne Legacy' to be chaotic.

The 'Dream House' actress admits she enjoyed working with director Tony Gilroy and lead actor Jeremy Renner, but did find the filmmakers way of shooting to be different than anything she was used to.

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.
