Sam Worthington has swapped his car for a bicycle.

The 'Avatar' actor admits he is a terrible driver and so his friends bought him a mode of transport they thought he would find easier to use and admits he makes an amusing sight on The Streets of Los Angeles.

He said: "My mate bought a bicycle for me because he said it's easier to get around Los Angeles, especially the way I drive.

"So I ride around like the witch in The Wizard of Oz with a basket on the front. It's pretty funny."

However, Sam admits he is still struggling even on the bicycle.

He added: "I'm not a very good bicycle rider either. I fall off. I don't recommend everybody does it."

As well as suffering scrapes on his bicycle, the 'Clash of the Titans' star recently said he is getting tired of sustaining injuries on movie sets.

He said: "All I seem to get is running and yelling and falling over and getting bashed up. You name it, I've done it and have the scars to prove it. For 'Titans' I had to learn to use a sword and shield which I thought would be easy - then I got covered in cuts and realised it's a lot harder than that."
