It seems that, at the set of the primary “Avatar” movie, James Cameron used to be stunned via the way in which Zoe Saldaña ran — such a lot in order that he felt he wanted to take motion. Saldaña herself recounted an alternate she had with the director for Elle UK. Possibly following a take of a scene, she remembered Cameron remarking, “‘What’s that?'” after seeing her run as Neytiri.
“He takes to the air his headphones like, ‘What’s that?'” she recalled. “I am like, ‘I used to be working.’ He is going, ‘That isn’t working! You’ve got gotta be told how to run!'” She went on to say that Cameron advised her to “get on a treadmill or one thing” in order that she may get extra relaxed working. It is not completely transparent what the director’s issue used to be together with her physicality, however she turns out to tie it to her loss of revel in due to her coaching as a dancer. “I did not know how to run as a result of I used to be simply busy dancing ballet and dancers do not run as a result of the rest that jeopardizes your knees or your ankles, you simply do not do.”
