Denzel Washington: I did my own stunts in Unstoppable
The film, which also stars Chris Pine, Kevin Corrigan and Rosario Dawson, was released in the UK yesterday (November 24th).
Directed by Tony Scott, the film focuses on a young conductor who has to try and stop an unmanned, half-mile-long freight train which is heading towards a city causing a catastrophe.
Speaking to BBC Radio 1, the actor said performing his own stunts was "the stupidest thing" he has ever done but also admitted that he enjoyed the experience.
"Being an idiot is what compelled me to do my own stunts. I think the audiences know when it's green screen and when it's fake and they can relax, but a part of the stress that you feel... is knowing that myself and Chris Pine, we're actually the one's up there," he explained.
The actor added that it created tension for the film.
