Jason Statham learned how to control sharks while filming 'The Meg'.
The 51-year-old actor's new film tells the story of a research crew who become stuck at the bottom of the ocean, and risk being killed by a 22-metre-long prehistoric shark called Megalodon, and Jason has now revealed what he learned about working with bull sharks during the shoot.
He shared: "These things don't mess about. If they want to get nasty, they get nasty. Take some tuna heads in a nice little bag, and a chain mail glove. And feed them."
Director Jon Turteltaub believes Jason was the perfect actor for 'The Meg'.
Speaking to USA Today newspaper, he explained: "When people hear 'giant shark movie,' they either say, 'I like it,' or roll their eyes.
"To make a giant shark movie have cinema quality, you need someone like Jason Statham. He grounds it, making the movie more believable, not more silly."
Meanwhile, Jason - who represented England in the Commonwealth games in 1993 for diving - previously claimed that his background made him a suitable choice for the movie.
He said: "I've been around swimming pools my whole life, and I learned to scuba dive when I made the first 'Transporter' with Luc Besson.
"I had an unorthodox lesson with a military free diver- someone who worked with Luc when he was making the big blue. I really got hooked, so I thought 'if I can get paid to do this and make a good story.'"
