It’s not a secret (or a surprise) that alcohol flows pretty freely in Hollywood. Champagne is a staple at many awards shows, and virtually all the pictures you see of celebrities hosting lavish parties features some form of alcohol. That’s why it’s also not a surprise that many of your favorite musicians and actors have drinking problems—even if they’re not always willing to admit it.
However, there are also a few celebs who don’t have a problem letting the public know that they were pretty drunk while filming a project. This should be seen as a cry for help, but most people just sweep it under the rug as comedy, or commend the celebrities for being “real.” We’ve seen over the years that famous people do, indeed, suffer from addictions. Often, people don’t take that seriously until the celebrity is in really bad shape—or until it’s too late to help.
Whether you think that finding out that celebs were wasted while filming is a “fun fact”, or it causes you to be concerned about your favorite famous person(s), it’s pretty safe to say that drinking on the job isn’t professional. Unless, of course, you’re in Hollywood and can get away with it. Here are 12 celebrities who don’t mind if you know they were drunk on set.
12 Neve Campbell - Wild Things
11 Denise Richards - Wild Things
10 John Leguizamo - Super Mario Brothers
9 Shia LaBeouf - Lawless
8 Natalie Portman - Black Swan
7 Mila Kunis - Black Swan
6 Billy Bob Thornton - Bad Santa
5 Daniel Radcliffe - Harry Potter
4 Anna Kendrick - Drinking Buddies
3 Margot Robbie - The Wolf of Wall Street
2 Brad Pitt - Fight Club
1 Martin Sheen - Apocalypse Now
There’s a memorable scene in Apocalypse Now where Martin Sheen is in a hotel room alone, drinking. During this scene, Sheen really is drunk. It’s also no secret that this movie took a toll on everyone involved. During the filming, the director, Francis Ford Coppola, lost 100 pounds and contemplated suicide. Martin Sheen even had a heart attack! After experiencing that level of stress, virtually anyone could be tempted to drink, although alcohol is probably a bad idea for people who are suicidal or have heart problems. The hotel scene was actually unscripted; Sheen got drunk and Coppola told the crew to capture the moment. Sheen punched a mirror and started crying when he cut himself. He also tried to attack Coppola off-camera and almost all of these “gems” ended up in the movie.
