Rachel Weisz learnt to ride a unicycle for her new movie The Brothers Bloom.

The actress is back on the big screen with Adrien Brody and Mark Ruffalo in the Rian Johnson directed movie.

The Oscar winner told The Scotsman: "I had to learn to look like I could play violin, piano, banjo, guitar. Plus karate and skateboarding! And I've never ridden one in my life.

"There's a unicycle and juggling. It was a lot of stuff and I had two weeks to learn them all, apart from a card trick - a really complicated one.

"An expert from England was flown to the film set, and I spent weeks and weeks learning the trick.

"Before we started I couldn't even shuffle a deck, so I always had a pack of cards with me and I had to practice every single day."

Weisz has already had a busy year with the release of The Lovely Bones and Agora but she has plenty of projects in the pipeline.

The Whistleblower is the next movie for her, which will be released later this year, and she has also completed Dream House with Daniel Craig.

She is also set to reunite with Hugh Jackman in Unbound Captives as well as being linked to Bond 23.

The Brothers Bloom is out now.
