Mary Elizabeth Winstead has confessed she does not see much action in Die Hard 5.

The Smashed star is reprising her role as John McClane's daughter Lucy in Bruce Willis' fifth movie about the disaster-saving cop.

She said: "We already shot it. I'm in it just for a little bit, but it was still really great to go back and get to be a part of the McClane family again, I loved it."

Mary Elizabeth plays a teacher who joins Alcoholics Anonymous in her latest film Smashed. She confessed she prefers making indie films to Hollywood blockbusters.

She said: "Smashed is a really small indie and those are the most fun for me, because you have most creative freedom. The less money you have the more free you are to really do whatever you want.

"That's where the fun really is, but they don't pay anything. So it's not enough to live off doing those kind of films, unfortunately, because they are really fun. You do them because you love the experience.

"So you do have to seek out films that have a bit of a budget behind them, so you can make a living. And it can be harder on the bigger scale, because you don't have that creative freedom."

::Smashed is in cinemas now.
