London, Feb 23 (ANI): Swedish actress Malin Akerman has revealed that while filming for her new moviem she was left feeling tortured because of the skin-tight latex costume she had to wear.

Akerman, 30, said that the bondage-style get-up was so uncomfortable that she felt like a wreck at the end of every scene, and her long hair getting stuck in the zipper did not help much.

The ex-model plays the part of crime-busting babe Silk Spectre II in the comic book sc-fi movie Watchmen, and she revealed that her skin would become so numb after she slipped into the costume that she ended up feeling like an 80-year-old woman.

It was the complete, absolute opposite of comfortable, the Daily Star quoted her as saying.

It was already a painful challenge to do all the fight choreography in such a constricting outfit.

But when my hair started getting snagged and pulled too because it got caught in the zips it was almost unbearable.

I called my husband every night crying. In between my sobs I kept asking, How did I ever think I could do this? she added.

The film will be released in the UK on March 6, and it is based on the dark, short-lived DC Comics series of the late 1980s. (ANI)
