Kicking off the week with some promotional duties, Rachel Weisz and Jeremy Renner hit up ABC Studios in New York City this morning (July 30).
The “Runaway Jury” babe and her hunky “Avengers” costar were in the house to promote their new film “The Bourne Legacy” on “Good Morning America.”
And it sounds like Ms. Weisz had quite the experience making the action packed thriller, especially when it came to the physical elements of the job.
She explained, “The stunts were the challenge. There are a lot in the film. In Manila, we have this huge chase scene on a motorcycle and Jeremy and I did most of it. We drove through that city and jumped over bridges and crashed into buses. I just had to hold on [tight]. I don’t drive. It was terrifying.”
“I would say about 99 percent of the time Jeremy and I were doing the stunts. Jeremy is a really good rider. He is just very physically adept at stunts. He is agile and fluid and beautiful to watch. I felt safe with him. We practiced for a couple of weeks in a big parking lot,” Rachel added.
“Sometimes when you watch a film, you see action scenes and car crashes and you just know it is fake. Here we are on the streets of Manila, on this bike, going fast. Audiences can see that this was really happening.”
