Rachel Weisz has revealed she did not pump iron ahead of her role in action thriller The Bourne Legacy as she didn't want to become "huge".
The 42-year-old actress - who has been taking Pilates lessons since the birth of her son Henry in 2006 - told Vogue magazine the training she has done for Bourne is "totally different" to what her husband Daniel Craig has to do to prepare to play James Bond.
Rachel said: "If I lifted weights I'd get huge. I'm naturally very muscly, so I'm kind of into general and moderate."
The Oscar-winning actress stars opposite Jeremy Renner in the new Bourne film, as a "nice, normal regular person" who ends up with Jeremy's character Aaron Cross, one of the super soldiers of secret government training programme Treadstone.
She revealed: "I'm not playing a superhero, I don't have superpowers. I don't even have a gun.
"That's really what I love about it, that as this type of film goes it's not implausible."
