CANNES, France, June 3 (UPI) -- Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf admits some of his action sequences in "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" were a bit of a challenge.

Asked which was more difficult to shoot -- a scene in which he fights bad guys while standing atop a moving Jeep or a chase sequence in which he rides a motorcycle with Harrison Ford, the movie franchise's iconic archaeologist, hanging on to the back, LaBeouf replied, "Definitely the Jeeps.

"Because a lot of people were involved and it was weeks of filming and a lot of prep and a lot of different elements," LaBeouf told reporters last month at the Cannes Film Festival. "The motorcycle was only scary because Harrison was on the back and if I went down, the movie was over."

"Your part of the movie was over," quipped Ford, who was sitting beside LaBeouf at the news conference.
