I would imagine being an actor is tough and demanding, especially when you have to film really hihg-pressure scenes. But some manage to make the best out of a hard situation and get drunk to take some steam off. Here are some you didn’t know about:
J-Law has admitted to getting wasted in her trailer while waiting for her Hunger Games shoot to begin. From her fiery performance in the movie, we would have never guessed she was impaired. Guess alcohol is a performance booster for some.
Who could have thought that the ever-graceful Julie Andrews was getting drunk on farm-brewed Peach Schnapps during her Do-Re-Mi scenes in Sound of Music? Those scenes on the Alps have a new meaning to me now.
Well, to be fair, Nicolas Cage’s characters seem drunk most of the time with all that screaming and wide-eyed shock. But being the method actor he is (yep), he decided he needed some liquid assistance to get into character for Leaving Las Vegas.
Brad Pitt & Edward Norton
Remember that golfing scene in Fight Club where Edward Norton and Brad Pitt have a confusing, deep conversation? Yep, both Norton and Pitt were sloshed while shooting that and David Fincher decided to keep that scene in the movie. It kind of just fit, didn’t it?
Acting alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in a movie as big as Wolf of Wall Street can be nerve-wracking, and making love to the veteran actor on camera could leave you shivering. That’s what happened to Margot Robbie, but she decided shots of tequila were the answer and went ahead and shot her intimate scene. Tequila to the rescue, as always!
