Mena Suvari has revealed the male stars of American Reunion haven't grown up much since making the original film more than a decade ago.

The actress, who plays go-getter Heather, teamed up with the rest of the American Pie cast this summer to make the latest movie in the hit franchise.

She revealed: "The guys, they're just so funny when they're all together and they're brilliant. Jason Biggs (Jim) is just absolutely fearless so there's a lot of pranks on set.

"Very kind of American Pie-themed jokes, a lot of vulgarity!"

Mena - who is helping launch the Captain's Island challenge with Captain Morgan Rum, also hinted that her character gets to "break out of her shell" in the new film.

"I can't give too much away, but Heather's at the point in her life where she's pretty much stayed back home in Michigan and even since high school it's always been about her work and pursuing her career.

"But she hasn't been so lucky in her relationship department really and you kind of see where things play out in this one... it was a lot of fun to play."

The star added: "It has been a little over ten years so unfortunately we do age, but no, it's been great, everybody looks awesome and it's been so much fun working on this.

"Our directors, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg from The Harold & Kumar films, they were huge fans of the first American Pie and we're all the same age working on this one. It was really just something that spoke to their generation, they completely understand it and were able to really get where the characters were at, at that point in their lives."

Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
