SHAFT star Samuel L Jackson was exhausted by actress Michelle Rodriguez on upcoming flick S.W.A.T. - because she had boundless energy.

Jackson admits he found the stunner as tough as the men onset, who included Colin Farrell and LL Cool J.

He says, "Michelle is one of the most energetic people I've ever met in my life. When they say cut, you look for Michelle and she's climbing something or she's doing a 100-yard sprint down the street in her full S.W.A.T. uniform just to burn off the energy she has left. She drinks RED BULL all day - that's one of her problems!

"But she is physically capable of doing anything that any man can do. She's such a ball of energy - I'll just put it that way."
