    There's a fine line between really good acting and a real-life experience.

    Isla Fisher revealed on Chelsea Lately that while shooting a scene for her upcoming film Now You See Me, she was stuck underwater for almost three minutes.

    "I was actually drowning," she said. "Everyone thought I was acting fabulously…no one realized I was actually struggling."

    The actress, who was filming a magic trick in a water tank, got into trouble when her release chain got stuck in her costume.

    "Who wants to die in a swimming costume?" she joked.

    But while Fisher initially made light of the near-death experience, she told Chelsea Handler that the ordeal was rather traumatic.

    Yikes! Maybe next time she won't do her own stunts?
