George Clooney has revealed that he wasn't exactly his best (or most sober) self while filming 1996's "One Fine Day."
While chatting with Michelle Pfeiffer, his co-star from the movie, as part of Variety's Actors on Actors series, he recalled one particular time during which he was drinking heavily with his pal Rande Gerber the night before filming.
"I was in New York, I was staying at the Morgans Hotel, and my friend Rande Gerber, who is my partner now in the tequila company [Casamigos] — I had the day off. So I had a few drinks," he said. "We stayed up and had a few vodkas or something. Then I came home at 1 in the morning. … I was pretty hammered."
"I woke up at 5 in the morning. I was like, 'I feel OK.' Then I looked in the mirror, and I was like, 'Oh, I'm still drunk,'" he continued. "I got to the set, and we walked to the trailer and I sat down and you looked at me. You go, 'What?' And I was like, 'I didn't know we were going to work today.' And you go, 'You're still drunk.' It's a scene we did in a oner where you and I are talking back and forth to each other. I kept trying to spray whatever mouth spray I could because I smelled like a…"
"Like a brewery," Michelle quipped.
George corrected her, claiming he smelt more like "a distillery."
Michelle also recalled the time the two-time Oscar winner came to the set with a facial injury.
"I took an elbow in the face from one of the crew members, and it broke my eye socket," George explained. "And I was like, 'I can still shoot.' I remember we actually shot scenes where we blocked half of my face with a kid."
