I Genuinely Can’t Watch These Teen Movies The Same Way After Learning These 16 Behind-The-Scenes Facts

Published

Reese Witherspoon improvised the Cruel Intentions scene where she slaps Ryan Phillippe.

1.

Joey King was apparently totally stoned out of her mind when she and Joel Courtney filmed the boardwalk scene in The Kissing Booth 3.

In an interview with Chelsea Handler on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, King revealed that she took an edible before filming the scene. “I got, like, so violently high. It was very unprofessional,” she said. “You know when you’re really high, all you know how to say is ‘I’m so high?’ That’s where I was at.”

Jenny Han, author of the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before books, which inspired the hit Netflix film series, made a cameo in each of the movies.

In the first film, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Han appears briefly as a teacher/chaperone during one of Lara Jean’s flashbacks to a homecoming dance. In the sequel, P.S. I Still Love You, she plays a teacher who comforts a student who’s crying in the cafeteria. And finally, in the third film, she appears as Principal Cho in a flashback scene showing how Lara Jean and Peter met at school as little kids.

Tim Meadows, who played Principal Duvall in Mean Girls, actually broke his wrist a week before filming started. As a result, they decided to write it into his character.

In an interview with Cosmopolitan, director Mark Waters explained: “Tim broke his wrist a week before shooting and thought he had to drop out, then Tina [Fey] said: ‘We’ll just write a little joke about you having carpal tunnel syndrome.’ It’s bizarre because no one comments on the fact he was wearing a cast for the whole movie.”

4.

Heathers had several alternate endings pitched. In an interview with Yahoo, writer Daniel Waters revealed that in the first draft, “[Veronica] kills J.D. in the boiler room, walks away from the high school, turns around, and she’s wearing the bomb. So she blows herself up to save the sins of the high school.”

Another ending apparently saw J.D. successfully blowing up the school, followed by the students enjoying a “prom” in heaven. However, studios reportedly found it too dark.

5.

Also in Heathers, the character Heather Chandler says the now-famous line, “Did you have a brain tumor for breakfast?” The actor, Kim Walker, actually subsequently died of a brain tumor in 2001.

6.

There’s a Cruel Intentions scene where Annette (Reese Witherspoon) and Sebastian (Ryan Phillippe) are in a heated argument, and she slaps him. The slap was actually improvised by Witherspoon.

Phillippe also reportedly threw up after the scene because it was so intense to film.

7.

The After movies were technically based on a One Direction fanfic from Wattpad. The fic, written by Anna Todd, was adapted into a novel series, which were then adapted into the films.

If you spent any time on Wattpad (or Tumblr) in the last decade, you probably already knew this. But if you didn’t, well, now you know!

Hardin’s character was Harry Styles in the original fic. “It was more along the lines of a modern-day Pride and Prejudice and Wuthering Heights than anything to do with the actual Harry Styles,” Todd said in an interview with StyleCaster.

8.

Kristen Stewart had to wear a Volturi cape any time they paused filming the wedding scene in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part I because they didn’t want her dress to get leaked before the movie came out.

In an interview with Cineplex-Movies at ComicCon, Stewart explained: “It was a huge deal keeping this [dress] shrouded. I was wearing a Volturi cape most of the time and I hated it. You know, you want to feel pretty on your wedding day and every time they called cut, someone would come and attack you with a Volturi cape and you’re like, ‘Where am I?'”

Dylan O’Brien almost lost out on the role of Thomas for The Maze Runner because of his haircut.

In an interview with Collider, O’Brien explained that he didn’t hear back for about a month and a half after his audition. “Wes [Ball, the director] was like, ‘His hair is too MTV!’ That’s what he thought, which was so funny,” O’Brien said. “Then he saw a picture of me with more regular hair, the buzzcut or something from Teen Wolf, and he brought me back and it worked. It just ended up working out.”

You know the famous parade scene in Ferris Bueller? So, it turns out that was a real parade. The filmmakers snuck the movie’s float into it and just started filming.

Director John Hughes explained in the DVD commentary: “It was an actual parade which we put our float into — unbeknownst to really anybody. Nobody knew what it was.”

Hilary Duff was only 15 years old when they started filming A Cinderella Story. Her onscreen love interest, Chad Michael Murray, was 22 years old at the time.

Shawn Mendes almost played the lead character Simon in Love, Simon.

In an interview with Elvis Duran, Mendes revealed that he was invited to audition for the character, but was unable to because of his schedule: “I would’ve loved to. Unfortunately, timing didn’t work out. It would’ve been amazing!”

The part ultimately went to Nick Robinson.

Nina Dobrev, who played Candace in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, filmed a scene where her character has an abortion (which happens in the book). However, the storyline was ultimately cut from the film.

In an interview with Hypable, Stephen Chbosky (director and author of the book) explained: “There’s a lovely subplot that involves Charlie’s sister, that Nina Dobrev was so brilliant in. It was the last thing [that got cut] and it broke my heart because it was just too much for the movie.”

14.

In Clueless, Alicia Silverstone really didn’t know how to correctly pronounce the word “Haitians” during Cher’s R.S.V.P. speech. The director thought it was funny, so they left it in.

In an interview with Vogue, director and writer Amy Heckerling explained: “[Silverstone] had the script and she was doing her lines and as soon as I said ‘cut,’ the script woman and everyone in the crew started to walk up to her to tell her the right pronunciation and I had to run interference and go, ‘Step away from the actress. Stand clear of Alicia Silverstone.’ Because I didn’t want her to know that she had it wrong, I wanted that assurance without her thinking this is funny or a joke — which changes how you say things. There’s something you do when you’re completely confident that just can’t be replicated when you know you’re doing something wrong.”

15.

Also in Clueless, Brittany Murphy’s character, Tai, says the now-famous line, “You’re a virgin who can’t drive.” The insult was actually inspired by Amy Heckerling’s own high school experiences.

In an interview with Interview Magazine, Heckerling explained: “I was the last person that I was aware of to lose their virginity of my friends and the people I knew in school, and I failed the driving test five times when I got to Los Angeles. So that’s how I felt. [That line] was purely personal.”

And finally, Emma Stone said she had a “little asthma attack” while filming the Easy A scene where her character, Olive, and Brandon pretend to have sex.

In an interview with MTV News, Stone explained: “I had a little asthma attack, without any prior knowledge that I had asthma, during the scene where we had to jump up and down for hours and hours screaming and yelling on the bed. [It] was humiliating, because it was the second day of shooting.”

“Oh, for the love, I can’t even simulate sex without dying!” Stone said.

Sarah Hyland Threatened to Walk Out of Her Own Wedding to Wells Adams If He Didn’t Do This One Thing

Published

on

Sarah Hyland had specific instructions for Wells Adams on their wedding day. On Monday’s episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, the Modern Family star confirms that she requested that Adams bring the tears during their nuptials. 

“Yes,” Hyland tells Clarkson after she asks her about the moment. “I actually, specifically, verbatim said, ‘If I don’t see you crying when I walk down the aisle, I’m turning around.’ And he did cry.”

Hyland, 32, and Adams, 38, tied the knot during a star-studded ceremony in August. The pair, finally, made it to the altar following a three-year engagement.  

The ceremony, which was held in Santa Barbara, California, was officiated by Hyland’s Modern Family co-star, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who stepped in to officiate when their co-star, Ty Burrell, had a family emergency.  

“So, I sent a text message to Jesse, ’cause we’re obviously very, very close and I was like, ‘Fake TV uncle, real-life friend, Tony Award-winning Jesse Tyler Ferguson, will you marry us?’ And he so graciously did it,” she said of asking the actor to step in.  

Hyland also adds that Ferguson flashed his clergy badge the entire evening. 

Other Modern Family alums in attendance included Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ariel Winter and Nolan Gould. 

Married life has been “amazing” for the Pitch Perfect: Bumper in Berlin star. During a recent chat with ET, Hyland gave an update on life since saying “I do.”  

“Wells and I keep saying we wish we were guests at our own wedding,” Hyland joked, explaining that the celebration was truly wild. Hyland added, “It’s really great. We’re feeling very good about everything. For me, I was like, ‘I feel like a grown-up now!'” 

In October, Adams dished to ET about married life and his and Hyland’s plans when it comes to expanding their family. 

“I think eventually [we want kids], but we’re both so busy right now. I’ve got two shows out right now,” Adams said of Bachelor in Paradise and Best in Dough, before adding of his wife, “She just did Love Island. She’s got [Play-Doh] Squished coming out in November. [Pitch Perfect:] Bumper in Berlin is also coming out pretty soon. She’s got a movie that she’s going to work on I think pretty soon, as well.”

He added, “I think we’re just going to try to focus on work for a little bit and then maybe down the road have a couple kids.”

Chloë Grace Moretz Got Candid About Having Older Men “Infantilize” Her As A Child Star

Published

on

Chloë Grace Moretz is getting super candid about her experiences navigating the Hollywood industry as a child star.

Chloë was just 6 when she landed her first movie role in Heart of the Beholder in 2005. The year prior, she briefly featured in the CBS drama series The Guardian.

She gained prominence in the industry at the age of 12 after starring in the hit 2010 film Kick-Ass alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Nicolas Cage.

By 14, had Chloë landed her first leading project with Carrie (2013), in which she played the titular character, Carrie White. She later went on to appear in several popular films, including Neighbors 2 and If I Stay.

But in spite of her years of experience in the industry, Chloë still found herself being “shot down” by others — most of whom, she says, were older men — when trying to bring her ideas to the table.

On the Reign With Josh Smith podcast this week, Chloë, now 25, opened up about having to deal with people on set who were “unhappy with a young woman” in her position.

“It was always odd from my first leading role when I was 14 in Carrie,” she said. “It was always really interesting to see who would be really unhappy with a young woman.”

“At that point, I had already worked for so many years — almost 10 years — and as I continued through having more important roles on set as I grew up, it was always very interesting to see the pushback that I would get from a lot of people,” she went on.

“The majority of it was older men for sure who would infantilize me,” Chloë said. “If I had real things to bring to the table, a lot of the time it would get shot down.”

“It was a really wild power struggle and power dynamic as a young girl who had worked for already 10, 11, 12 years, throughout my teenage years and was the lead of movies, but was still a kid in every sense of the word,” she continued.

“I felt like I was always really fighting against trying to figure out how to conduct myself in a way that I’ll be respected, so I can be respected on set and given the credit that I felt that I deserved,” she said.

“To have a voice in the same game when I’m playing characters that are my age, I’m advocating for female characters of my exact age at the time. And having to even advocate to an older man on behalf of your 14-, 15-, 16-year-old self is a really, really crazy kind of mindfuck,” she added.

Chloë said she learned to be “very sweet” and “back-footed” in how she approached these older men with her ideas.

“It taught me how to propose questions and in a way to make the ideas their ideas, so then it would come back around and be like, ‘Oh my god, what a novel idea that you have on behalf of my character that I totally did not propose to you in no special way,’” she said.

“It was an interesting dynamic and as I grew up and as my characters grew up, I always had to be very sweet and very kind of back-footed in the way that I proposed things, but strong,” she added.

Elsewhere on the podcast, Chloë discussed how she experienced “anxiety and guilt” after getting used to “people-pleasing.” She said, “I always operated for a long time under this guise of what I wanted to achieve outwardly. … Even just in my small groups in my life and people around me, I was just people-pleasing.”

Chloë’s latest comments come just two months after she opened up about struggling with anxiety and body dysmorphia thanks to a “horrific” viral meme about her physique.

The meme, which features an edited photo of Chloë alongside Family Guy character Legs Go All the Way Up Griffin, saw the young actor trending across social media when it was first created in 2016.

“I’ve actually never really talked about this, but there was one meme that really affected me, of me walking into a hotel with a pizza box in my hand,” Chloë told Hunger magazine in September. “And this photo got manipulated into a character from Family Guy with the long legs and the short torso, and it was one of the most widespread memes at the time.”

“Everyone was making fun of my body and I brought it up with someone and they were like, ‘Oh, shut the fuck up, it’s funny,’” she recalled.

Chloë said she became “severely anxious” anytime she was photographed as a result of the public mockery, and she wound up becoming a recluse.

“I basically became a recluse,” she said. “It was great because I got away from the photographers and I was able to be myself, and to have so many experiences that people didn’t photograph, but at the same time, it made me severely anxious when I was photographed. My heart rate would rise and I would hyperventilate.”

Will Smith explains how he talked to his nephew, 9, about Oscars slap

Published

on

Will Smith said his infamous slap at the 2022 Academy Awards ceremony was the result of “a rage that had been bottled for a really long time.”

In an interview on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” the actor opened up about why he slapped Chris Rock, and how, after the incident, his 9-year-old nephew’s reaction broke his heart.

“We came home, and he had stayed up late to see his Uncle Will,” Smith said. “We’re sitting in my kitchen, and he’s on my lap and he’s holding the Oscar. And he’s just like, ‘Why did you hit that man Uncle Will?'”

“D— it!” Smith recalled of his reaction, wiping away tears. “Why are you trying to Oprah me?”

Smith gave more details from the ceremony, which Noah described as what he thought was “one of the best days of your life and one of the worst days” of Smith’s life.

“That was a horrific night, as you can imagine,” Smith said. “You know, there’s many nuances and, and complexities to it, but at the end of the day, I just lost it.”

“It was a lot of things,” he continued. “It was the little boy that watched his father beat up his mother, you know, all of that just bubbled up … that’s not who I want to be.”

Smith, who is promoting the film “Emancipation” — his first movie since the troubling incident — said he is afraid the team behind the movie may get denied awards consideration because of his actions.

“These top artists in the world have done some of the best work of their career. And the idea that they might be denied because of me is like…” Smith trails off, before groaning and hitting his head against the desk.

“That is killing me dead,” he added.

Smith slapped Rock after the comedian was on stage at the March 27 Oscars ceremony.

Rock cracked a joke about Smith’s wife’s bald head while presenting an award. Jada Pinkett Smith has alopecia, an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss.

Smith issued several apologies in the days and weeks following the incident, and resigned from the from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on April 1.

A week later, the Academy banned Smith from all of the organization’s events for 10 years. His resignation and ban do not prevent him from being nominated for or winning future awards.

Rock has performed stand-up shows since the slap, and addressed the controversy during a performance in July.

“Anyone who says words hurt has never been punched in the face,” Rock said, later adding, “I’m not a victim. Yeah, that s— hurt … But I shook that s— off and went to work the next day. I don’t go to the hospital for a paper cut.”
