Actress Zoe Saldana's action-packed movie roles are taking their toll - the star admits her body feels like it's aged a decade since working on 2009's Avatar.
Saldana is quickly becoming the go-to girl in Hollywood for hard-hitting action parts after her energetic work in James Cameron's motion capture masterpiece.
She has recently wrapped Colombiana, in which she plays a steely assassin, but despite her athletic abilities, the 33 year old reveals it's becoming harder for her to bounce back from strenuous work on set.
She tells Total Film, "I always go home looking like a map. That's what my mom tells me because I have black and blue all over the place. But I'm addicted to the adrenaline of being a physical person. That said, I'm entering the consciousness of mortality. With Avatar I was fine; I'd get hurt, I'd get up, I'd brush it off and keep going."
"But my body feels like it's aged 10 years. It can't reboot as quickly."
