Zero Dark Thirty' star Jessica Chastain has revealed she thought of superstar Tom Cruise while preparing herself for action film.

The actress said her 'The Debt' co-star Sam Worthington gave her some pointers about how to run in an action movie, reported Contactmusic. "Sam Worthington, who I acted with in 'The Debt', had to teach me (how to run), because I used to look like such a wimp when I tried.

He told me to think of Tom Cruise when he runs in movies - that's what I was aiming for," she said. Chastain, 36, also praised another co-star, Brad Pitt, with whom she starred in 'The Tree of Life', for being an inspiration to her career.

"Working with Brad Pitt (was a turning point). He's too humble to make it obvious that he's giving you advice but I would watch him on the set and follow his example."
