2) Jeffrey Wright gifted Jennifer Lawrence with Crickets
On the set of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Jeffrey Wright gave star actress Jennifer Lawrence a blue Tiffany jewellery box after she won the Oscar for Best Actress in 2013.
Remembering that Lawrence was immensely afraid of bugs, the actor decided it would be hilarious if said box contained not jewellery – but live crickets.
When he was asked, why he did such a thing instead of just sending her flowers or something, Wright said: “Just to keep her, you know, grounded. You know, what do you give the girl who has everything?”
1) Shia LaBeouf knocked out Tom Hardy
Shia LaBeouf is one of the strangest actors working in Hollywood today, so it’s not surprising that some weird stuff went down when he ended up starring opposite Tom Hardy in John Hillcoat’s moonshine drama Lawless.
LaBeouf has insisted that the pair shared a brother-like bond of sorts during the shooting of the film, Hardy might disagree however. That’s if his story about the Transformers actor knocking him out cold has any truth in it, which director Hillcoat has confirmed: “There was definitely a fight between them. It escalated to the point where they had to both be restrained”.
According to Hardy, the pair wound up punching each other on the set one day, only for LaBeouf to deliver the knock out blow, which must be devastatingly hard for the Dark Knight Rises star to admit.
