The Weird Stuff that Actors Do in Almost Every Movie

It is easy to think that actors are paid to, you know, act. This would in theory mean that they appear to be completely different people every time you see them.

Yet, some of the world’s most famous actors have little habits, traits or customs that appear to crop up in just about all of their movies.

Sean Bean Dies a Lot

The Weird Stuff that Actors Do in Almost Every Movie

The Evidence: Patriot Games, Goldeneye, Equilibrium, Lord of the Rings, The Island, Black Death

There´s a lot to like about the idea of becoming Sean Bean. As well as having a surname that makes you sound like a common ingredient in Mexican food there is also the vague but tantalizing possibility that you are a relative of the Mr Bean. However, it seems clear that the single best thing about life as Sean would be that you only ever need to read part of the script for any movie or TV show. You would turn up to the audition with a long, flowing leather jacket or historical garb and just ask, “So, what page do I die on?” Bingo, you get the part and you don’t even need to read the whole flipping script.

Tom Cruise Runs a Lot

The Weird Stuff that Actors Do in Almost Every Movie

The Evidence: Jerry Maguire, Mission Impossible, Collateral, Vanilla Sky, The Firm

It must be tiring being Thomas Cruise Mapother IV. As well as jumping up and down on Oprah’s sofa, it seems that he is also contractually obliged to run in every single movie he appears in, even when it is completely and utterly inappropriate to do so.  Some of his running scenes also just seem to go on forever. Check out the exhausting and bizarrely compelling way he just keeps on running and running and freaking running through Dubai and Shanghai in the Mission Impossible films. I needed a lie down and several liters of those crappy sports drinks after watching those running sequences.

Johnny Depp Wears a Ridiculous Amount of Headgear

The Weird Stuff that Actors Do in Almost Every Movie

The Evidence: Pirates of the Caribbean, Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Public Enemies

Could I politely enquire as to how often you have seen the top of Johnny Depp’s head? You might initially think that you have seen his delightful crown on a regular basis but I can assure you that you have bloody well not. Unless you are his hairdresser or, and this is the crucial point, his hideously overworked hat-maker. You see, Master Depp has a penchant for wearing headgear in all possible situation and places, no matter how silly it may appear. Creepy character from ye olden times? Stick a hat on it. Camp pirate? Cover that crown. Anything else ever? Call that hat maker and let your headgear fantasies come true.

Brad Pitt Eats Totally Everything

The Weird Stuff that Actors Do in Almost Every Movie

The Evidence: Ocean’s Eleven, Meet Joe Black, Mr and Mr Smith, Moneyball, Johnny Suede

Maybe you have already heard a rumor about Brad eating in all of his movies but couldn’t quite bring yourself to believe it. After all, eating is gross and Brad is like so un-gross it actually hurts. Well, I hate to shatter your illusions but if you check out the list of things he has eaten on screen you will find burgers, sandwiches, potato chips, bagels, carrots, and every single foodstuff ever invented by man. No one knows why he does this, although I have a theory that stands up to scrutiny. I reckon that sneaky old Pitt is too busy looking good to waste time consuming edible goods in his own time. Instead, he demands that his character spends all day stuffing his pretty face. In this way, he fills his tank at work and can go home to just relax and steam his face in unicorn crap or whatever he does to stay so handsome.

Jack Nicholson Shows You His Teeth

The Weird Stuff that Actors Do in Almost Every Movie

The Evidence: The Shining, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Batman, Seriously, do I need to go on…?

Did you know that Jack Nicholson has teeth? If you have ever seen at least 20 seconds of one of his movies then yes you do. From maniacal grins to cheeky smirks and charming smiles, Jack has cornered the market in onscreen dental displays so much that he is surrounded by a team of “smile reflection protection agents” who hand out free sunglasses to passersby. Probably.

Famous Falls and Celebrity Trips

Can you honestly sit there with a straight face and say that you don’t enjoy seeing famous people fall over in extremely public situations? Seriously?

Celebrities and other well-known people have been tripping up and slipping and sliding about since time began. So what are the most famous celebrity falls that you can remember?

Madonna and Her Cloak Fail

Famous Falls and Celebrity Trips

Madonna was in the news recently when her flowing cloak caused her to fall backwards down some steps at the Brits Awards. It seems that her matador style cloak was tied too tight for her to loosen it before a dancer could yank it away dramatically. In the end, the singer suffered an embarrassing backwards fall down 3 steps.

Naomi Campbell Takes a Famous Tumble in Paris

Famous Falls and Celebrity Trips

One of the most famous celebrity falls of all time happened when supermodel Naomi Campbell suffered a painful trip on the catwalk a few years ago. This happened in a Paris fashion show in 1993 and it seems that we can put it down to the unfeasibly big platform shoes she was wearing. It was a classic moment for celeb-watchers, as she rolled her ankle, fell down and then just sat there for a few seconds.

Lady Gaga Falls off Her Piano

Famous Falls and Celebrity Trips

If you are going to jump off a burning piano live on stage while wearing stilettos then you are going to want to be pretty careful about how you do it. Sadly, Lady Gaga found out that this kind of thing can lead to a bad fall even if you take the ultimate precaution of only wearing underwear at the time. Her famous fall from a piano isn’t the only time she has hit the deck but it may be the most spectacular.   

Jennifer Lawrence and the Oscars Mishap

Famous Falls and Celebrity Trips

If you watched the 2013 Oscars then you probably remember Jennifer Lawrence tripping on her gown and falling as she walked up to collect her award. She looks suitably embarrassed as she accepted the award to a standing ovation. Again, it isn’t her only celebrity tumble but it was pretty memorable all the same.

Beyonce Hits the Deck in Brazil

Famous Falls and Celebrity Trips

Not even Beyonce is safe from the burning shame of a high profile celebrity trip or fall. Perhaps her most spectacular moment came in Brazil. She was singing Irreplaceable when she fell to the ground. She managed to get back up again quickly and made it seem as though as it was probably just part of a lame dance routine.

Pink’s Harness Lets Her Down Big Time

Famous Falls and Celebrity Trips

This was more of a big fall than a tip but it was too good to leave it out. Pink was doing a show in Germany when her safety harness failed and she crashed down to the ground instead of soaring above the audience. She thumped onto the floor and then could be heard to curse at the pain and indignity of it all.

Elton John and Tennis Chair Incident

Famous Falls and Celebrity Trips

During a recent charity tennis event Elton John sat down on his chair and promptly toppled over backwards in a rather hilarious manner. He made a decent recovery but the video of his fall has still proved to be extremely popular online. Well, it’s got to be more interesting than watching a blooming tennis game.

What to Expect from Game of Thrones Season 5

Although Game of Thrones Season 5 has been expected for quite some time now, there are only a couple of months left until the new season will be aired.

Due to this, we have gathered some cool stuff we learned about Game of Thrones season 5 from the released trailers.

Careful! This article contains spoilers from Game of Thrones season 4 so if you have not yet seen the previous season, you are not advised to continue reading this article until the end. Also on this not, if you are among the people who have not yet seen season 4, why haven’t you started/ finished yet?!

The popular HBO TV series was up until now filled with suspense, blood spilling, outrageous crimes and incest so we expect nothing less from the upcoming season.

Have I captured your attention? Perfect! Let’s begin.

1. Release date

Game Of Thrones Season 5

Filming has already started last fall and Game of thrones season 5 is set to be released on the 12th of April, which means we have only 8 and a half (long) weeks to keep waiting. For those of you who have not yet started watching Game of Thrones or still have to finish watching the 4 seasons which have been released by now, you have 8 more weeks to start and finish them. Trust me, you won’t regret it!

2. Tyrion Lannister’s epic beard

Game Of Thrones Season 5

The trailer for Game of Thrones season 5 has also showed as a glimpse about how our beloved characters will look like in the new season. Probably one of the most dramatic look changes features Tyrion Lannister who after a long boat ride inside a box manages to stand up with a brand new and epic beard. Given the fact that he killed two people in a matter of minutes before setting sail in his box home, the beard makes him look even more badass.

3. Sansa Stark is going to make some changes

Game Of Thrones Season 5

Sansa is now supported by “Littlefinger”, Petyr Baelish who leads her into thinking revenge is the only way to succeed. Not much is known about how these changes will affect the kingdom she now has under her rule or the people who have murdered their family, but we sure as hell want to see her finally act on something.

4. Daenerys Targaryen looks like the most promising leader

Game Of Thrones Season 5

More and more people who actually know about her existence are taking the side of the Mother Of Dragons and by the look on her face, she is going to destroy anyone who stands in her way to the Iron throne. We haven’t seen anything about the dragons in the trailer though, I wonder what they’ve been up to. Hopefully, Viserion and Rhaegal will be set loose and their brother, Drogon will eventually learn to listen to his Mother. I swear to God, if the dragons die, we will riot!

5. What is going to happen next?

Game Of Thrones Season 5

There are several locations from where the action can be picked up in Game of Thrones season 5. Some of the most interesting locations left are the following:

Well, taken into consideration the fact that most of the players in Kings Landing have either been killed or sent away, there is not much left to talk about there, except probably the wedding between Margaery Tyrell and  Tommen Baratheon.

The Vale, where Sansa and Littlefinger are planning the next move. Petyr, you have already killed her aunt, what else do you have in that devilish mind of yours?

The Wall where Sam and Jon along with what’s left from the Night’s Watch are still keeping an eye out for white walkers and the wildlings. You still know nothing, Jon Snow!

Meereen where Daenerys has locked up two of her dragons, Viserion and Rhaegal while Drogon is still free. Hopefully Drogon will keep his fire off innocent people and start focusing more on his mom’s enemies.

Braavos where Arya Stark has ended up while looking to decipher the Secrets of the Faceless Men. It is exactly as the name suggests, “The Faceless Men”, will there be any room for a girl?

Up North where Hodor, Bran and Meera are trying to figure out what Bran’s destiny is. Hodor!
