The 44-year-old actor has had to handle deadly weaponry for his roles as rogue CIA agent Jason Bourne in 'The Bourne Legacy' and intelligence analyst William Brandt in the 'Mission: Impossible' series but insists he isn't worried about his new-found skills.

He said: "For a year I had to learn how to build and dismantle a bomb with guys who are really good at what they do ...

"We have to learn to become experts at something in a very short amount of time. And these are all things that can hurt you or hurt other people, so by doing it and and educating myself I've certainly no fear of it. And it's really impressive to be around people that are really good at what they do."

Meanwhile, the 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' star - who has two-year-old daughter Ava Berlin with his former wife Sonni Pacheco - admits it is surreal to see his face on an array of movie merchandise.

He added: "I never thought I'd be on a bag of Cheetos. You're on a pair of underwear. I remember those kinds of underwear when I was a kid. It's cool, man. But I don't want to get used to it."
