Quite a few films show actors having a sip of the good ol’ whiskey, bourbon, wine, or whatever the script calls for. But rarely, if ever, do the viewers notice if the actors are actually smashed or just acting. I mean, if I had to repeat a scene inside a brewery time after time, I’d be pretty blitzed! Naturally, it’s not always alcohol that they’re drinking, and they spit everything out most of the time, relying on their own method acting skills. There are, however, instances, when the actors either come to the set already inebriated, or become that during the shooting. And here are just 9 of them.
Daniel Radcliffe – Harry Potter
Oh yeah, he went there. Mr. Potter showed up to the set already hammered time after time. He admitted he was partying fairly hard that year, and I personally can’t blame him. What teen wouldn’t want to be one of the most recognizable people on earth and be able to party day and night? As he told The Daily Mail, “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.”
Jennifer Lawrence – Hunger Games
Yup, Katniss Never-Miss Everdeen confessed to drinking multiple pina coladas on the set of Catching Fire, and if you look closely at some of the scenes, you still won’t see anything wrong with her acting, because she’s a professional.
John Leguizamo and Bob Hoskins – Mario Bros
According to some sources John Leguizamo brought scotch to the set, which he and Hoskins then gulped during the day. And if you’ve seen the Mario Bros movie, you know that that was the only way to stay sane.
