Jason Statham’s “Meg” research brings him up close with real sharks

Our favorite Brit headed to beautiful Fiji where he got under water with BAD (Beqa Adventure Divers) and experienced bull and tiger sharks in their natural habitat. Jason shared some incredible photos taken by his “old pal” Dan Smith and wrote about his thrilling adventure on his official Facebook:

A massive respect and thank you to all the fearless Shark Divers I was lucky enough to meet over in the beautiful place called Fiji. These guys surely have nerves of steel, as some of the bull sharks are over 3m in length and could tear you to pieces at any given moment. Getting up close to these incredible predators is an experience you will never forget. Everyone of the expert dive team needs a mention as they are truly the best pro divers you could ever be next to when you are down at 30m surrounded by these big aggressive sharks.
Thank you brothers!

Jason Statham poses for more photos in Auckland, New Zealand

While exploring some of down under in between filming “Meg,” our favorite Brit stopped by at some coffee places and went go-karting last week. As you can imagine, wherever he goes people know who he is and he is always so gracious to take photos.

@annareeve_: Paying for my parking and there is a big fuss from the girls behind the counter about the gentlemen in front of me in a beanie. One word out of his mouth and I knew it was @jasonstatham. Jay has a pretty big man crush on the guy so had to ask for a selfie too. Nice guy and in NZ till December shooting ‘Meg’ with Jays old MTV co host @rubyrose.

Coffee place owner Andy JV: Coffee is a bit of a ritual you know? People weren’t harassing him…it was all very casual and he was on his own, no minders or anything like that.

He was here to shoot and movie and he was just singing praises about the local film industry and the people that worked in it.

He was only here for ten minutes, having a yarn, all very casual. I don’t think he had the time to sit around.
