London: Rachel Weisz has revealed that she was “genuinely scared” as she filmed stunts for ‘The Bourne Legacy’, insisting that the scenes were “a challenge”.

The ‘Constant Gardener’ star, who is married to ‘James Bond’ star Daniel Craig, also revealed that she often called home to share her terror.

“Actually, the stunts were terrifying. There were weeks spent on the back of a motorcycle, with Jeremy riding it, jumping over intersections and down staircases, and jumping off bridges in harnesses and onto moving buses,” the Daily Express quoted her as telling Stylist magazine.

“It was a challenge. I was genuinely scared - I didn’t have to do any acting at all when we did the action scenes! I would be phoning home saying, ‘I’m terrified’. I’m sure it must have been safe, but it didn’t feel it,” she added.
