12 Actors Who Were Drunk On The Job
Whatever the reason—be it boredom or realism or nerves—these celebrities may have hit the bottle a little too hard on the job.
Australian actress Margot Robbie knows how to make an impression. Auditioning for her role in The Wolf of Wall Street, the script calls for her to simply walk away from DiCaprio at the end of the scene. Instead, Robbie explains that she slapped him in the face and yelled “F**k you!” Apparently, that didn’t make getting naked and filming a sex scene with DiCaprio any easier. What did, she says, was “three shots of tequila…at like 9 o’ clock in the morning.”
Even Harry Potter himself has found solace in the bottle. According to Daily Mail, actor Daniel Radcliffe spent years partying, and even showed up drunk to the set of the wizard franchise films. Said Radcliffe: “I went into work still drunk. I can point to many scenes where I'm just gone. Dead behind the eyes. I have a very addictive personality. It was a problem.”
In a Global Google+ Hangout fan Q&A, Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence admitted that she got drunk with the cast of Catching Fire while filming. In an interview with David Letterman on The Late Show, promoting the same movie, Lawrence said she was bored on the Catching Fire set and drank Piña Coladas in her trailer.
It seems fitting that while shooting the movie Drinking Buddies, actress Anna Kendrick got drunk on set. Accidentally, of course. While filming scenes, the actress was given real beer after drinking the non-alcoholic variety during previous scenes. The result? Drunkenness at work and slight embarrassment. Kendrick told Vulture: “I was pounding beer, and I didn't realize it was real until halfway through the take. I was like, I'm super drunk right now!"
BRAD PITT & EDWARD NORTON
While we may never know quite how seriously Brad Pitt and Edward Norton took the fight scenes in Fight Club, it’s said that director David Fincher turned the camera on his famous pair after a night of heavy imbibing. The short scene in which Pitt and Norton drunkenly fire off golf balls was said to be shot after the two had gotten drunk. The director smartly took advantage of the moment.
NATALIE PORTMAN & MILA KUNIS
Like a lot of stories that center around a bottle of tequila, this one involves a bit of “he said, she said.” According to director Darren Aronofsky, the film’s stars, Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman, loosened up for their infamous sex scene with more than a few pre-shoot sips.
While shooting the Depression-era Prohibition film Lawless, actor Shia LeBeouf turned to moonshine to get real for his role as a bootlegger. “I did it for the movie. I didn’t drink off set for no reason,” LeBeouf told Page Six. “I did it because, when I showed up on set the next day, my [bleep]ing eyes looked like this and my face…had that drunk bloat that I needed, that I couldn’t have if that wasn’t going on.”
NEVE CAMPBELL, MATT DILLON & DENISE RICHARDS
The 1998 “erotic thriller” Wild Things' most memorable scene is the menage between the two female leads played by Neve Campbell and Denise Richards and guidance counselor Matt Dillon. In the scene, Campbell swigs from a bottle of Champagne, but according to reports, there was a fair amount of offscreen swigging to loosen nerves before rolling even began.
