Gerard Butler's 'Bounty' Burrito Feast
Gerard Butler was sick on the set of "The Bounty Hunter" after eating 27 burritos for one scene. The Scottish star was required to munch on the snack for one funny scene, but the film's director re-shot the moment 27 times.
And Butler was so determined to make each take as real as possible; he ate a fresh burrito every time - which made him violently ill.
He says, "It's funny because there's a way to learn to eat on camera when you just put small amounts in your mouth and make it look like you're eating a lot. I'm not very good at that so that first day, I literally had 27 burritos."
"It was a scene in a restaurant and I'm just stuffing them in, pouring hot sauce all over them too and chowing them down. Every scene I had to start with a fresh one. By the end of that day I was so ill, but it had to be real."
"I remember the director saying, 'You don't have to eat in every scene.' But I just said, 'Look, it's important.'"
