We are listing 10 wild movie set experiences that will blow your mind.
10. How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
To endure the day by day eight-hour makeup session it took to change him into the nominal character in How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Jim Carrey was prepared by a man who shows CIA agents how to endure torment.
On The Graham Norton Show, he said, “The cosmetics application resembled being buried alive every day. Right from the start, I returned to my trailer, put my leg through the wall, and told [director] Ron Howard I was unable to do the film.”
Titanic cast and team were poisoned with PCP-spiked clam chowder, so they were taken to the medical clinic at 1 a.m.
Team part Marilyn McAvoy told Vice, “Nothing was at any point authoritatively decided, apparently. Among the team, there were bits of gossip that it had been a disgruntled chef that had been given up, however nothing at any point happened to that.”
8. The Exorcism of Emily Rose
While filming The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Jennifer Carpenter’s radio continuously turned on in the middle of the night and played the words “I’m still alive” over and over. Her costar Laura Linney’s radio also turned on three times during filming.
Michael Imperioli cut his hand on broken glass on the Goodfellas set and was raced to the emergency clinic, however the ER specialists hurried to treat the fake bullet injuries from the death scene he’d been shooting instead.
The incident occured after he demanded doing his own trick for the shot, which made it into the finished cut of the film.
6. The Revenant
There was no cellphone signal during the shooting of The Revenant.
Chief Alejandro Iñárritu is known for being exceptional, yet he truly took it to the NEXT LEVEL when shooting this film. In addition to the fact that he demanded that the whole thing be shot with characteristic light, however he likewise needed to film on the spot in freezing-cold Alberta, Canada (we’re talking like – 22 degrees Fahrenheit sort of cold). This led to different obstacles, perhaps the most forceful being that there was ZERO cellphone service on the set, and they depended on snowmobiles that went back and forth to convey messages.
5. Interview With Vampire
If you think Pitt’s character in this film appears as though he would not like to be there, turns out it wasn’t acting. “A half year in dark. Contact lenses, makeup, and I’m playing the ‘bitch’ role,” Pitt said. “One day it broke me. I called David Geffen, who was a producer. I said, ‘David, I can’t do this any longer. How much will it take to get me out?’ And he goes, tranquilly, ‘Forty million dollars.'” Needless to say, Pitt was persuaded to proceed after that expensive acknowledgment.
4. Mission Impossible-Fallout
Tom Cruise always wants to do all of his stunts himself, but one time he got seriously injured.
“That’s the stunt, I hit the side of the wall, then I’m supposed to run past the camera, I knew instantly it was broken, we got the shot, and both those shots are in the movie. I was just like, ‘Sorry guys, it’s broken, take me to the hospital,’ Cruise said.
3. To All The Boys I Loved Before
Lara Jean’s lock screen was not scripted. Actually, it was a picture that was taken on the set of Lana Condor and Noah Centineo napping together.
“That was actually one of our crew members who took that photo. They actually were sleeping on the couch like that, so we just stood over them and took that picture and it’s so friggin’ cute,” director Susan Johnson said.
2. The Passion of the Christ
While filming the Sermon on the Mount scene in The Passion of the Christ, Jim Caviezel was struck by lightning.
He said, “About four seconds before it happened, it was quiet, and then it was like someone slapped my ears. I had seven or eight seconds of, like, a pink, fuzzy color, and people started screaming.”
1. Now You See Me
Isla Fisher almost drowned when her release chain got stuck on her costume during a magic trick scene in Now You See Me.
She said, “Everyone thought I was acting fabulously…no one realized I was actually struggling.”
