Diane Kruger played the role of Helen in the 2004 epic movie Troy and she says that her co-star Peter O’Toole is the meanest actor she has ever worked with.
“You know who wasn’t very pleasant, was Peter O’Toole,” the 39-year-old actress said while being interviewed by her Sky co-star Norman Reedus for Buzzfeed.
“It kind of sucked. He’s dead, so I can say that. But he wasn’t the most pleasant person,” Diane added. “He was just a drunk, and Peter O’Toole. You know, he had a two-day part, and I played Helen of Troy and he was Peter O’Toole, and he just wanted to make sure that everybody knew that he was Peter O’Toole. And he could barely make it up the stairs. We were on a set that was — you know, you have to climb, like, I don’t know, 100 steps to go up.”
“He was just — first of all, everybody thought he was gonna die right there and then. Because it was, you know, 120 degrees, and he had to walk up 100 stairs. And he was very old, and very drunk,” Diane continued.
Peter passed away in December 2013 at the age of 81.
