Tropic Thunder Storms Entertainment Weekly

Ben Stiller, Jack Black, and Robert Downey Jr. do a group interview with Entertainment Weekly and talk about about their new movie Tropic Thunder, out August 13th.

On if they have ever came on set drunk: Jack Black – No. I had an improv class in high school and I came stoned one time. And I was so paranoid that I never tried to f— with it again. I marvel at some people’s ability to party and then act. I’m not built that way. [Pauses] But what blows me away is how quickly someone who’s new to the industry can go from being, like [breathlessly], ”Whoa, what? I have my own trailer?! Oh my God, you guys, this is insane!” to [smugly] ”But I deserve it. And actually now I expect it.”

On stories about other actors acting like jerks: Ben Stiller – I was directing an actress once who was taking a nap on the set and I had to gingerly wake her up. [Whispering] ”We have to film now.” ”But I’m so tired.” ”I know, but everyone’s here and we’re ready to do the scene.”

On their lack of inhibition and being in embarrassing situations on screen: Robert Downey Jr. – I have been so wantonly, flagrantly humiliated [in my personal life] that anything that could happen as a result of a movie doesn’t even register.
