Sam Worthington is tired of getting "bashed up" in his movies.

The 'Avatar' and 'Clash of the Titans' actor is hoping for a less physically challenging role in his next film because he is tired of coming away from filming with bruises all over his body.

He said: "All I seem to get is running and yelling and falling over and getting bashed up. You name it, I've done it and have the scars to prove it. For 'Titans' I had to learn to use a sword and shield which I thought would be easy - then I got covered in cuts and realised it's a lot harder than that."

Despite his complaints, Sam has previously admitted he missed shooting action scenes when working on 'Last Night' with Keira Knightley.

He said: "To be honest I craved a gun and a sword while I was doing 'Last Night' opposite Keira Knightley. I didn't get the same kind of rush from the kissing scenes."
