Zoe Saldana isn't just a pretty face in The Losers - she also considers herself "lethal".
The Avatar actress had to undergo combat and gun training to prepare for the role in the action flick, which also stars Idris Elba, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Columbus Short.
"I like to think of myself as more than just a hot chick - I was a lethal weapon," she told Entertainment Tonight at the film's Hollywood premiere.
"I went in, wanting to do an amazing action movie and it was so much more. I love trying new things. When I did Avatar, I tried martial arts and when I was training for The Losers, I was doing more combat and gun training. I love it."
Jeffrey, however, didn't relish the physical aspects of the part, who admitted he made it through "by the skin of my teeth".
"It was a rugged shoot and I realised very early on that doing action movies at my age, I don't know, man. I should have started this about 20 years ago," he said.
:: The Losers will be released on May 28.
