Olga: Hard for Malick to cut scenes

Olga Kurylenko has confessed that hours of her work didn't make the final cut in new movie To The Wonder.

The former Bond Girl has the starring role of troubled soul Marina in Terrence Malick's film and appears in plenty of scenes, but as the filmmaker is known for shooting much more footage than he needs, hours ended up on the cutting room floor - and some actors even disappeared completely.

Olga told the Hollywood Reporter that one of her scenes with Rachel McAdams got the chop.

"A lot of things didn't make the final cut," she said. "I watched, and I thought: 'Where did that scene go? That was a great scene'."

She said of the director's editing process: "It's very difficult for him because I think as an artist it's his baby. It's very hard to cut scenes, but you have to do it."

Meanwhile, Oblivion star Olga has revealed she would like to do more comedy.

The star is often cast in action movies since she starred in James Bond film Quantum Of Solace and is looking to add more comic roles to her CV after her appearance in Martin McDonagh's Seven Psychopaths with Sam Rockwell, Colin Farrell and Woody Harrelson.

"I'd love to do comedies and romantic comedies. Romantic characters or funny characters would be fun to explore. I'd love to do that," she said.

"I took part in Seven Psychopaths and that was so much fun. Too bad it was a small part because it's hilarious."
