To Hollywood stars, lying sometimes gives them a chance to change their lives is not visible even in dreams.
Here are some actors and actresses who were forced to lie in order to get the role they wanted, and let’s find out how the directors reacted when they found out.
Ben Hardy wanted so much to take on the role of Roger Taylor in the movie Bohemian Rhapsody, that he was willing to lie on the CV that he was a talented drummer because, at that time, director Bryan Singer really wanted to find someone who really knew how to play this instrument. Ben Hardy was retained for the role of the band’s drummer Queen, but only after he had to undergo a long course.
Chris Hemsworth looks like a giant at the height of 1m92 but he has to lie that he is shorter than that for the role. However, one of the requests for Thor was he has to be over 1m85, so that white lie of Chris wasn’t exactly a lie at all.
Eddie Redmayne lied that he knew how to ride when he auditioned for Elizabeth: The Golden Age. When the movie was started filming, everyone realized that day and the director was forced to hire many stuntmen to help in many scenes. Several years later, Eddie carefully took a horse-riding course for 2 months before casting for another historical drama, The Other Boleyn Girl, and this time he no longer had to lie.
When Sandra Bullock was a toddler, she realized that participating in the comedy Love Potion No.9 was clearly an opportunity not to be missed. Bullock later confessed that for the director’s approval, she added several years to the age portion of her CV.
The talented actor debuted for the first time in the comedy Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982). But few know he was even cast for the lead role Brad Hamilton. Everything was fine until the director found out that he was only 17 years old instead of 18 as he was introduced in the casting.
Because of this, Nicolas Cage lost his role, because at that time, by law, only at the age of 18 a person was allowed to work long hours.
Director Li An while filming Brokeback Mountain wanted to find an actress who could ride a horse, and Anne Hathaway at that time did not hesitate to lie. Of course, when it all came out, she had to take a 2-month course, so that the film could be on schedule in 2005.
