Sigourney Weaver “had some concerns” about shooting Avatar 2, which seems perfectly reasonable once you find out that she had to learn how to hold her breath underwater for six minutes and trained with “elite military divers” in preparation. Speaking with T magazine, the 71-year-old actress explained that the physical demands actually drew her to the role: “My hope is that what I receive from the universe is even more outrageous than anything I can think of,” she said. As for going along with director James Cameron’s insane schemes, Weaver pointed out, “that’s what the training was for. And I really wanted to do it. I didn’t want anyone to think, ‘Oh, she’s old, she can’t do this.'” Uhh, don’t worry — no one will! [T magazine]
