London, June 20 (IANS) Actor James McAvoy says it was difficult for him to visit the gym regularly and shoot long hours for “Wanted”, but his co-star Angelina Jolie used to motivate him to enjoy the shooting. McCavoy plays a hero in the movie and had to act out quite a few action sequences. reports him as saying: “I never normally go down the gym, but if you have a reason and someone to make you it has its advantages. It sounds like every 16-year-old boy’s dream to do action stunts, but working out for 12 hours a day plus going to the gym for 90 minutes … then you think, ‘Stick this!’”

Commenting on Jolie, he added: “She was great. She reminded me that if you can’t have fun making an action movie then you shouldn’t be making one at all. When I was moaning about my stunts she just told me, ‘Shut up and enjoy it!’”
