Jones 'lost dignity' snowboarding

Felicity Jones found learning to snowboard very difficult

Chalet Girl star Felicity Jones reckons learning to snowboard means losing your dignity.

Although the actress has had ski lessons before, she encountered some tough moments on the piste while preparing for her upcoming rom-com Chalet Girl, which also stars Gossip Girl's Ed Westwick.

"I used to ski. I had the horrific dry slope experience for a few years when I was younger, but I'd never encountered a snowboard until Chalet Girl," Felicity said.

"After about four weeks of six hours a day, I eventually got the hang of it - at least that's the impression I wanted to give. But it was quite an intense experience trying to learn how to snowboard. You definitely lose your dignity."

It wasn't just Felicity who encountered some awkward moments. Director of the flick, Phil Trail, managed to almost knock himself unconscious showing off.

He said: "I wasn't allowed to snowboard because of insurance reasons, but I was doing my EPK (media) interview on the last day and I said, 'if you do an interview with me snowboarding then I'm allowed to snowboard'.

"But I didn't wear my helmet and I started to show off, which for me, is going backwards for about three yards and I fell over and smashed my head. I literally couldn't move."
