Jason Statham will pay "significant amounts of money" to avoid greenscreen

There's a must-read interview with Jason Statham in the new issue of Details, in which he explains succinctly why greenscreen effects totally suck:

Fahkin' hate green screen. Pay significant amounts of money never to do it again. You cannot fake adrenaline.


Statham also explains why he doesn't think of himself as a brand:

Fahk no. Why should I? People see a guaranteed $30 million a film as a brand in need of management. Fahk 'em. Kim Kardashian's a brand.


And he explains how director Guy Ritchie gave him the only acting lessons he ever received:

Guy really went above the call for me. Had me up to the house before I met the producers to read through dialogue. 'No, you're doing way too much! The camera picks up more than you think.' Pointers like that.

I always prefer if it's done for real rather than green screen or CGI, I know nothing about the craft of acting and I love Statham but isn't he kind of admitting that he's not a great actor if he can only do it one certain way?
