Emma Watson sick from stagnant water

Feb 16 2014, 10:26am CST | by

Emma Watson fell ill after Darren Aronofsy banned water bottles on the set of 'Noah'.

The filmmaker wanted to encourage a ''pro-environment'' atmosphere during filming to echo the messages of the movie, which led to the ''delirious'' actress drinking ''stagnant'' water in a bid to stay hydrated in the early morning heat.

She said: ''Because of the storm, Douglas [Booth] and I ended up shooting most of our scenes between 4am and 7am - and at that time I never function well.

''Because the film has a pro-environment message, Darren didn't want anyone drinking from plastic water bottles on set either. So that made things slightly harder.

''Everything we used had to be recycled or recyclable. Having no water bottles on set at five in the morning - when you're exhausted and delirious - wasn't ideal.

''I was so tired one morning I picked up a mug from my trailer and drank some stagnant water that had been there for the duration - so three months. I was so ill.''

And the 23-year-old actress was stunned when the director told her to ''use'' her illness in the scene.

She continued to Wonderland magazine: ''I came in the next day and was like, 'Darren, I don't think I can do this, I'm really sick.' He was like, 'Use it for the scene.' And I turned round to the bus and was like, 'Is he joking? He is joking right?' and there was deadly silence.''

Filming was often tough on the movie because of extreme weather conditions, and the heat even saw Ray Winstone come close to passing out on set.

Douglas said: ''We started filming in the summer in New York. It was so hot that Ray Winstone at one point, who wore a beard and heavy make-up, nearly fell down a flight of stairs.''

Emma added: ''His make-up was literally melting off his face. Then we decided to shoot the soaking wet scenes. We literally went through all the seasons.''

Noah DVD Review: Russell Crowe's Biblical Storm Finds a Home

Jul 30 2014 4:08pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

Darren Aronofsky may have seemed like an interesting director to bring the classic bible story of Noah to life. But when his effort landed on screens in the form of Noah, audiences responded in droves to the epic. Now Noah has arrived on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download and what is so fascinating is that even though it is an epic that should be seen on the biggest screens on the planet, due to Aronofsky’s storytelling style and character building ...

Morten Tyldum’s Headhunters follow-up, The Imitation Game, won’t make its big debut until the Toronto International Film Festival in September, but the film is picking up Oscar buzz, so it should come as no surprise that Tyldum has already locked another project, the big screen adaptation of Fredrik T. Olsson’s Chain of Events.  The book doesn’t even arrive until November 4, 2014, but Warner Bros. snatched up the rights last Au ...

This week’s edition of fashion fails is straight from the City of Lights and not everyone’s style star was shining bright! JLo killed it at the Altier Versace show during Paris Fashion Week, but we quickly went from oh-la-la to oh-no! Just wait til you see Dakota Johnson’s leather look: it’s more rodeo clown than S&M! And Emma Watson was on point most of the week, but her look to the Dior show did not have us loving the black and white trend. Last but certainly not least, t ...

Dreamworks Animation Picks up ‘Felix the Cat’ Rights

Jun 18 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Slash Film

How well-known is Felix the Cat of late? In the US, maybe not so much. Los Angeles residents know him thanks to the sign for Felix Chevrolet on S. Figeuroa St, which has stood for over fifty years. If you’re in that part of town, it’s difficult to miss. For everyone else, Felix still has a recognizable mug, even if the number of people who have actually seen one of the character’s animated shorts is somewhat small. And in some countries, he still enjoys a level of popular ...
