Olivia's Cycling Passion

British movie star Olivia Williams' love of cycling got her in trouble on the set of her new movie - because it endangered her hairstyle.

The SIXTH SENSE star thought she was saving her chauffeur a trek and being environmentally friendly by cycling around the set of The Heart of Me, but she landed in trouble after her hair extensions got damaged.

She says, "There's this absurd situation on a movie set where your trailer's here and the set is here and the lunch tent is here, and you're not allowed to get yourself from these three places.

"So I got myself a bicycle and I didn't know at the time it was irregular. What I didn't realise is that the car is an instrument of control.

"You need to be escorted everywhere in case you suddenly wander off into the wilderness and fall down a hole and the movie has to come to an end because you've broken your ankle.

"When I got on the bike, my hair extensions got tangled in the wind. So I learned the hard way."
