Scarlett Johansson was forced to work-out as she filmed futuristic new action film The Island after her preparation plans fell foul of tonsil trouble.

The actress scrapped her work-out plans after having her tonsils removed two weeks before shooting began - and had to put in gym time on the set to stay in shape.

She says, "I had to kind of prepare on the set. I'd go from doing 14 hours of work to two hours of working out. It was crazy."
