The 25-year-old actor recently dished to MTV about how his kung-fu training for Airbender actually helped him with Eclipse. Jackson shared, “I play characters (who are) a lot of the wars and a lot of the fight scenes. So, I did two months of kung-fu training for The Last Airbender and then that actually parlayed really well going into Eclipse, so I had all the background training.”
Jackson added, “And then I did more fight training in Eclipse, so I consider myself fairly well-trained — for film, at least. Don’t come up to me on the street and try and fight me!”
The Last Airbender hits theaters on July 2nd. Are you going to see it?
