Christina Ricci learned to fly a helicopter in two seconds.
The actress learned how to take control of the airborne vehicle - which was computer generated - for her new movie 'Speed Racer' in a matter of seconds.
Speaking at the film's UK premiere in London's Leicester Square last night (29.04.08), Ricci told BANG Showbiz: "I got to the shoot and I was like, 'Oh, maybe you could show me what it looks like to drive a helicopter?' and within two seconds they were like, 'It just looks like this.' All of a sudden I was like, 'I can fly a helicopter. It's not that bad.'"
Ricci - who plays Trixie, the lead female in 'Speed Racer' - braved torrential rain to attend the premiere. The svelte star looked stunning in a small black dress as she walked down the red carpet shielded by a clear plastic umbrella.
Ricci also revealed shooting the entire film without sets, against a green screen, didn't cause any problems.
She added: "It's really amazing how fast you get used to green screen, and we had such a bonded cast it literally took a day. The directors they made everything so easy and comfortable, they inspired such confidence. You really do put yourself in their hands, and it doesn't matter what you might imagine around you."
Other guests at the premiere included Ricci's co-stars Emile Hirsch, who plays the film's hero Speed, John Goodman and Susan Sarandon, while Guy Richie attended with his children Lourdes and Rocco.
Sir Ian McKellan and 'Speed Racer' producer Joel Silver also ignored the terrible weather to attend.
