Bradley CooperHe took some heat for revealing that he doesn’t allow chairs on the sets of his films – but as it turns out, he’s not alone… whether it’s seating rules or any other ban.
You may have heard about this… BC conducted a one-on-one interview with the greats Spike Lee For Variety’s “Directors on Directors” series — and right off the bat, Brad said he doesn’t like to sit in big chairs when he’s shooting a movie. He also seems to not allow others to be like that.
As he himself says, he hates chairs on set…feeling they suck the energy out of the actor and out of the room in general. So, he kicks them to the curb – and presumably makes everyone stand up for the most part…or get relegated to apple crates.
He also said that he does not believe in the video village model – where the director watches events from distant screens – and seems to like watching performances up close.
Quentin Tarantinomeanwhile, is famous for exploiting cell phones while the cameras are rolling – and Martin Scorsese It is said that the use of wristwatches as a means of “increasing immersion” is not permitted.
The point here is that a lot of directors have weird little quirks that they should have (or not have). In Brad’s case, he seems to be following in the footsteps of the greats who came before him when it comes to squatting.
Dude should rework the song “Stand and Deliver”…because apparently that’s the way he rolls!
