Cameron Diaz likes doing stunts

Cameron Diaz was ready and willing to do her own stunts in Knight And Day.

The 37-year-old, who stars in the action comedy with Tom Cruise, loved getting her hands - and feet - dirty as she prepared for her moves, which included spinning cars to sitting astride her co-star on a speeding motorcycle.

"I love training for fight sequences - it's a week of getting bruises, cuts and sprains, but it's also a lot of fun," she said.

"When I went to the Golden Globes this year in the middle of filming Knight And Day, I had lumps up and down my arms and scraped knees. I loved it!"

Cameron plays car restorer June, who goes on the run after a chance meeting with secret agent Roy (Tom).

"She goes from a woman who doesn't have any idea what her capabilities are, who only ever dreamed of adventure, into someone who realises that yes, she can drive, she can shoot and she can stay right with Roy," she explained.

:: Knight And Day is in cinemas now.
