Actor Stanley Tucci hated filming new movie Jack The Giant Slayer in 3D because the specialist cameras "broke down a lot" and the cast was left waiting around while the equipment was fixed.

The Devil Wears Prada star appears in the new blockbuster, based on the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, opposite Nicholas Hoult and Ewan MCGregor, but admits he didn't enjoy working with new technology on set.

He tells the Associated Press, "I can't stand 3D. I really can't. I'm happy to go watch it but I don't work shooting in 3D. It's not fun. Nobody will tell you it's so fun shooting in 3D. We were all dressed in stupid outfits. It was pretty funny sitting around in chairs, everybody with little caps on, tight spandex things with little balls all over you. I'm not kidding. It's so humiliating!

"We had a lot of difficulty with the cameras, they broke down a lot and the crew was cursing them. Ultimately it looks amazing and you have to be patient, but when you're sitting around for 13 hours a day in soaking wet leather doublets, and you maybe get two shots off a day, it's kind of frustrating."

Tucci also insists filming action scenes using a green screen backdrop is boring for the actors, adding, "I don't think technology is so great really. You end up doing a lot of stuff in front of green screen, that's not really very exciting for an actor. We're probably going to be replaced by digital-something soon!... An independent film, you do it because you love it, but I think motion capture movies are the ones where you have to be paid a lot of money."
