London: Actor Jason Statham thinks action scenes are a lot of fun despite the potential injuries he could sustain filming them.

The 46-year-old `Transporter` star does his own stunts and admits while he often gets hurt, it`s more enjoyable than relying on a stuntman, reported Daily Mirror.

"I`m always getting banged about. I just expect it now - it`s part of the job. Coalminers get dirty, I get hurt! It looks serious, but it`s actually a lot of fun; although it can get pretty ridiculous at times," he said.

In his new film "Hummingbird", the Hollywood hard-man plays an ex-army veteran, who is homeless.

"We uncovered a lot of stories from real soldiers, from homeless men ... People who served in Northern Ireland, people who lost eyes. People now walk past and don`t stop to talk to them - it`s like they`ve become invisible," Statham said.
