Matt Damon felt his age when returning to the role of Jason Bourne for the first time since 2007.
The 45-year-old star has returned to play the conflicted superspy in the latest instalment in the franchise, titled Jason Bourne, but admits he found it far harder to get action movie fit than he did when he first took on the role in 2002's The Bourne Identity.
"For the first Bourne movie I was 29 and I thought that was hard work getting into shape," he told the BBC. "Now I'm 45 and it's just brutal. We shot this bare-knuckle fighting scene on my 45th birthday and it was a lot of work to get there. I was on a very strict diet and spent a lot of time in the gym just making myself miserable."
The new film will be Matt's fourth outing as Jason, a C.I.A. agent who initially had to rebuild his identity after amnesia. He did not appear in the previous movie in the franchise, The Bourne Legacy, which starred Jeremy Renner.
