I almost feel bad for these celebrities. It can’t be fun to be great at more than one thing.

There’s a certain element of mystery to the film industry. For as much joy as the TV shows and movies bring us, we’re always left wondering about the events that take place behind the scenes. Luckily for us, the Internet exists and we’re finally privy to some really legendary stories from the actors. Check it out:
The costume assistant for the original Wizard of Oz movie purchased the wizard’s coat from a thrift store to maintain it’s authenticity. The actor wearing the coat noticed there was a name written in the pocket. It was “L. Frank Baum,” the author of The Wizard of Oz books. This was later verified by Baum’s widow.
Brad Pitt wasn’t giving a convincing enough reaction to the stage punches he was receiving in Fight Club so, without telling Brad, the director instructed Edward Norton to actually hit him. If you watch the film, you can see that Brad Pitt really did get punched in the neck.
While filming Another Time, Another Place in 1958, Sean Connery’s love scene with co-star Lana Turner was so convincing that her real-life boyfriend pulled a real-life gun on Connery. Thinking quickly, he grabbed the man’s wrist and twisted the weapon free. Her boyfriend fled the set and was eventually killed by Turner’s daughter.
Bill Murray improvised every single one of his Caddyshack lines. His creativity turned a minor role in the movie into the most iconic character.
George Lucas repeatedly informed Ewan McGregor that he didn’t need to make the lightsaber noise while filming Star Wars: Episode I, but Ewan continued to imitate it throughout the shoot. His excuse? “I keep getting carried away.”
The button at the end of the Avengers showing the heroes eating shawarma actually sent US shawarma sales through the roof. It was obviously not their intention.
And this gem about filming Parks And Recreation from Chris Pratt.
