During the filming of The Whole Nine Yards, Bruce doubted the film’s success. And his partner Matthew Perry thought the opposite, and neither decided to argue.
The film about the adventures of a dentist and a contract killer turned out to be excellent, and Bruce lost the argument. As a result, he had to star in the TV series Friends for free. His appearance as Rachel’s new boyfriend (and also Ross’s girlfriend’s father) made a splash. By the way, it is my favorite guest appearance. But after that incident, Bruce never argued again.
Brad Pitt starred in the second Deadpool as the Invisible Man. He refused the money, and in return asked Ryan Reynolds, who plays the main role, to bring him coffee. However, Pitt did not lose much money and time – his character has a couple of seconds of screen time. And this life of the character ended tragically.
During the filming of The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Heath Ledger played the main character. But then the infamous drug overdose events happened, and the creators of the tape were at a dead end. I had to look for a new actor for the main role. Johnny Depp was the best candidate. After filming the film, he gave all the money to Heath Ledger’s family.
