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.

I hope this movie is huge. All the little rights groups need to shut up and watch the movie before they sit there stirring up sh*t. They already had to shut down the “related” fake movie site Simple Jack because of them. The guys are playing ACTORS and making fun of the frivolousness and shallowness of acting and it seems beyond some people to understand that.

That said, the guys look great. Can’t wait for my issue. And, bless his heart, I just love Robert’s attitude about the stuff he put himself through earlier. And the fact that he’s OK with talking about it and the fact that he has moved on. He’s fantastic and I hope people recognize what a great job he did on this movie instead of berating and seeing it for something that it wasn’t.

I saw this movie a month ago and it was terrible. I was so terribly disappointed. But I still love all the guys and the writer Justin Theroux.

So true, but I wonder if he had anyone specific in mind? Anyway, can’t wait for this movie.

The clips I’ve seen are hilarious. RDJ is very funny in movies and real life and Ben Stiller is absolutely great at what he does.
