Avatar star Sam Worthington reveals eyesight issues

By Emily Tait

Avatar star Sam Worthington has said that he struggles with his eyesight, adding that straining to see clearly can often lead to him looking angry.

The short-sighted star said that people think he is cross when he squints to try and make things out in the distance.

However, he added that his poor vision means he does not get distracted easily.

"I"m blind. I can"t see. I"m short-sighted and I don"t get distracted by anything on set. So it"s just basically me and the other person," Worthington is quoted as saying.

The Australian actor has made a name for himself since starring in James Cameron"s Avatar alongside Zoe Saldana and Sigourney Weaver.

He plays Jake Sully, a paraplegic former marine who travels to the planet Pandora on a research mission.

Upcoming projects include The Debt, Last Night and Clash of the Titans.
