Zoe Saldana is starring alongside Christian Bale in Out of the Furnace, and while her role is small, the 35-year-old actress says filming was very intense.
"At first, I thought she was just another character in this story with an unfortunate life – forced to make decisions that were painful,” Saldana told NBC Latino.
“But shooting was actually very intense. I lived as this character; it was a very exhausting process to hold onto so much feeling and emotion.”
Saldana plays Bales love interest, Lena Taylor, in this film about one man whose life changes dramatically following a crazy turn of events.
Out of the Furnace is in theaters December 6!
