'The Mummy' star Rachel Weisz says she found the set of her upcoming film 'The Bourne Legacy' to be chaotic.

The 42-year-old actress said that she enjoyed working with director Tony Gilroy and lead actor Jeremy Renner, but did find the filmmaker's way of shooting to be different than anything she was used to, reported Femalefirst online.

"Tony Gilroy, he's a very unusual director. I've never come across someone like him, in that he's incredibly bright, he's got a very strong intellect, he's a wordsmith, he's got a great sense of control and order.

All the thing that you need to direct," Weisz said. "But he also loves chaos and chaos in the acting, and I think that's how you get a raw, edgy, kinetic acting style which feels like reality, rather than safe, stagy kind of acting.

I've never come across someone who has that combination, Tony has a real rock 'n' roll streak in him, a raw edginess," she added.
