Brendan Fraser feels sharing the screen with Harrison Ford in his new movie is a big achievment.
In Extraordinary Measures, the Mummy star plays a father searching for a cure for his children's rare genetic disorder opposite The Indiana Jones star, who plays a researcher, and admits it was a challenge acting with such a screen legend.
Brendan said: "Quite an accomplishment I think - to hold my own, and feel like, wow, here I am meeting the actor who I must admit was the individual who... I said to myself, I want to be in films because of the type of work that he in particular does."
The actor confessed he wasn't that interested in science at school, but Harrison Ford made sure all the information in the film was entirely accurate.
Brendan said: "I was one of the art guys, I wasn't one of the science guys - but the science in this film is all accurate. Harrison made sure of that. He's a very meticulous and well researched one.
"Everything he spoke, uttered, everything written on the walls. It's all accurate research. I guess in that way it's really no acting required."
