5 Movie Scenes Actors Refused To Shoot

Published

on

The life of an actor seems to be nothing but red carpets and big paychecks, but their jobs are very personal and can cause more emotional distress than we think. It’s unlikely that your nine-to-five requires you to pose nude, kiss strangers, or perform duties against your personal beliefs, and do so for the world to see. Here are the stories of five actors and what pushed them to the limits on set.

Mike Myers Saves Wayne’s World

Mike Myers, star of Shrek, Austin Powers, and many others is known for being difficult on set. However, his demanding attitude is what made the 1992 Wayne’s World a cult classic. According to Myers, in the iconic head-banging scene, the group was going to be listening to a Guns N’ Roses song. Myers refused to film unless they changed the song to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody and forever changed both the movie and the band’s fate.

Julia Roberts Refuses To Film With Costar

In their 1994 romantic comedy, I Love Trouble, stars Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte started one of the most infamous celebrity feuds of the decade. Roberts apparently couldn’t stand Nolte’s buffoonery on set and refused to film with him towards the end of the movie. She would spit jabs at him whenever possible, and Nolte apparently became even more aggressive the longer they worked together. This feud went on for years, even ten years later when Roberts called him a “disgusting” human being.

Will Smith Refused To Kiss His Costar

Will Smith is a beloved actor for so many roles, from the Fresh Prince of Belair to The Pursuit of Happyness. However, in 1993, he took on a more bold role as a gay character in Six Degrees of Separation. Though he was willing to take the risk, he was advised by other acting pros at the time to not kiss his costar Anthony Michael Hall on film (as it was still a highly controversial subject in Hollywood). They instead opted to film the scene with Smith’s back to the camera so he could fake it.

Emma Watson Was Not Impressed With “This Is the End”

Seth Rogan is known for outrageous films, including This Is The End. The movie is a hodgepodge of talented actors, including James Franco, Channing Tatum, and Rogan himself. Emma Watson also appeared in the movie, but not for very long. She reportedly walked off set when Tatum’s stripper scene got to be too much and never returned.

Anna Kendrick Changed Pitch Perfect Plot Single-Handedly

Anna Kendrick made her rise to fame in Pitch Perfect, and she apparently did so on her own terms. Kendrick refused to film a storyline where she becomes romantically interested in a record label executive, deciding that it would be distracting rather than complimentary to the plot. She also refused wardrobe choices, stating that “…We get notes from the top saying they should be tighter and sexier and show more skin. And I’m like, that’s not why people are coming to see the movie… audiences are interested in seeing a movie of misfits and girls of different shapes and sizes.”
