Rachel Weisz likes the fact that her onscreen character is not "physically gifted" as it is "really realistic".

The actress stars as top-security research scientist Dr. Marta Shearing in The Bourne Legacy, alongside Jeremy Renner. Rachel did her own stunts in the movie, but says nothing that her character did was out of the ordinary.

"What I really like about the tone of the Bourne films is that they’re really realistic, I’m not playing an action heroine. I’m playing a scientist who is a pretty normal person. I’m not physically gifted, in any way. I think it’s always very realistic," she told Collider.

"She’s really scared. She’s really terrified. And then, at the end, she gets to kick ass, a little bit, but she’s not a superhero."

Rachel rode on a motorcycle through Manila with co-star Jeremy. The star has joked she didn't need to fake her horror during that scene.

"It was really terrifying! Jeremy never told me when we were in Manila, but that was the scariest stunt for him because he was responsible for my life," she said. "He didn’t tell me that in Manila, thank god, because I would have been like, 'Oh, my god!' I just had to surrender and hold on. I didn’t have to act. It just was terrifying."
