Sam Worthington's Good Titans Message

Sam Worthington thought the original 'Clash of the Titans' was bad for children.

The actor, who plays demi-God Perseus in the 2010 version of the film, admits the message of the original film did not sit well with him.

He said: "I've got a nine-year-old nephew who I love dearly. In the original the character Perseus loves being part of the Gods and he loves the God toys.

"I thought that was a really bad message to give to a nine-year-old, that you can only achieve something that you are a God. So we really pulled out the thing that... if you do this journey as a man and pull something in yourself you can pull out something that is strong. I think that is a great message."

The 33-year-old actor also admits the film is about evolving as a person.

He told BBC Breakfast: "His family get knocked out and he goes on a Charles Bronson-type revenge mission and learns to grow up and calm down. I think that's a pretty good message to get out there."

'Clash of the Titans' is released in the UK on April 2.
