7 Actors Who Admitted to Drinking On the Job

Let’s just all raise our hands here and admit it: we’ve all had days on the job where we could’ve used a good, stiff drink… not after the day is done, but right smack in the middle of it. It’s just the way of work – there are days where it gets boring or just plain annoying (if you’re in customer service).

While actors certainly have one of the most exciting professions out there, it’s still a job, Sometimes, they need to have a few drinks too! Maybe they are bored, maybe they’re nervous, maybe they just want to relieve the tension of their job and their life for a little while.

These actors all admitted that they drank while filming some blockbuster movies, which makes the movies just a bit more interesting.

Maybe you need to go back and revisit some of these movies and pay closer attention to these actors, hmmmm?

Pitt and Norton starred in the now-iconic film Fight Club together, and they shared many memorable scenes. Remember the one where they drunkenly hit golf balls together? Director David Fincher decided to film that scene because the two actors were drunk and he wanted to catch some of their antics on film.

…I did not know that.
