DANIEL DAY-LEWIS DOES NOT LIKE MILKSHAKES
HOLLYWOOD – Daniel Day-Lewis does not like milkshakes.
In an exclusive interview, the reclusive method actor Daniel Day-Lewis has revealed he does not like milkshakes. His lactose intolerance made for an uncomfortable and smelly shoot on the set of There Will Be Blood.
The Exec managed to catch up with the super private actor at his home, 36 Dewbury Gardens, Bradford, BD8 9PL (if there’s no-one home there’s a key under the plant pot, just let yourself in).
What was it like playing Daniel Plainview in There Will Blood?
It was a bastard nightmare, I tell thee. It should have been called There Will Be Shit. They made me drink so many fucking milkshakes, my guts just wanted to explode. Blow themselves right out of my ass, all over the set.
That must have been quite difficult?
Yeah, but in all fairness, it was more difficult for Paul Dano. He was a real trooper, helping me with my tummy troubles between set ups. He would empty the Saniflow shitter in my trailer. I ended up calling him Paul Draino, he loved it. That boy sure has a strong constitution. To tell you the truth, I kinda think he enjoyed my baptism scene where he slapped me. I think he got some payback.
How many times did you shoot that scene?
Four hundred and fifty two times. He just kept saying that he thought he could do it better and kept slapping me harder and harder. I have a reputation to consider, so I couldn’t say shit. But I got my own back.
Did you get your own back with the scene in the bowling alley?
Shit, no! I got my own back on him after about 200 takes of the baptism scene. We took a short break so I scoffed down a grilled cheese sandwich with a glass of full fat milk. Then every time he slapped me, I’d fart. I shat my pants several times, but neither of us would budge an inch. It was a real mess down there. But I think the results speak for themselves.
My God! What’s that smell?
