Shooting a movie takes a lot of time and a lot of things happen to the actors. Some of these things are funny, some – pretty crazy and some of them are just horrible and almost made some actors quit.

Nexter.org prepared you a list of 7 wacky things from the Marvel movie sets.

Chris Pratt was jealous of Baby Groot cuteness

Filmmakers usually use a stand-in for smaller CGI characters like Baby Groot so the actors have something to talk to.

“We had a statue of little Groot,” director James Gunn said at a press event. “We just had this adorable little statue standing there, and we’d get in this scene and all this stuff would be going on and [the cast] would be acting their butts off, and really putting [in] their hearts and souls. All of a sudden Chris [Pratt] would look over at [Baby Groot] and go, ‘Damn it, he’s gonna steal the whole movie!”

 

Chris Evans got injured

Remember that epic helicopter scene in Captain America: Civil War? Well, first of, that wasn’t a CGI, can you believe that? And also, it actually injured Chris Evans.

“This is a shot where Cap is holding this big [helicopter],” Robert Downey Jr. said in a joint interview with Evans and People. “And I say, ‘You know what? All the things he’s done, that’s the one that was going to injure him … they’re saying, ‘Flex and hold it!’ It wasn’t the other 3,000 stunts, it was that.”

Robert Downey Jr. then acted like a real nursemaid. “I went to [Downey’s] trailer and he put these things all over my arm.” Which, apparently, was a pulse massager.

 

Anthony Mackie pranked Paul Rudd all the time

Anthony Mackie told the crowd at MCM London Comic-Con that he used to go down to the set of Ant-Man to specifically prank Paul Rudd. That was his way to relieve stress. “I just go and bully Paul Rudd for an hour and then come back to set. Everyone just feels better about themselves.”

“I would prank Paul Rudd every day of the week,” Mackie continued. “It’s so easy man, he’s an easy target. Tom [Holland] is always watching his six. He’s always nervous. He knows something going down. But Paul is just happy, he’s like lalalalala. So he’s easy to get.”

 

Someone made Tom Holland a set chair out of a toilet

Tom Holland posted a pic on Instagram of three set chairs, one of which was a toilet and had Peter Parker’s name on it.

“Loving my new set chair,” Holland wrote. “Thanks guys. Should you really be treating number one like number two.”

Thankfully, it turned out that it was actually a prop toilet, which makes it a bit less gross.

 

Trailer town

There were so many trailers on the set of Infinity War that while Paul Bettany was working in an undisclosed location, he thought he’d accidentally wandered into a small town.

“I woke up, and I knew we were shooting in the middle of nowhere,” he said. “We were shooting an outdoors scene, and we started to descend down into this valley. There’s this f**king town, and I was like, ‘Where the f**k is this?’ I got my phone out and there was nothing there, and that’s when I realized there were no buildings, it was all trailers. I’ve been making for 20 years and I’ve never seen anything that big or bonkers in my life.”

 

Jessica Alba wasn’t crying pretty enough

According to CBR, when Jessica Alba was playing Sue Storm in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, she nearly gave up her filming career because the director of the movie, Tim Story told Alba that her acting was “too real.”

“‘Can you be prettier when you cry?'” Alba recalled in an interview with Elle Magazine. “‘Cry pretty, Jessica.’ He was like, ‘Don’t do that thing with your face. Just make it flat. We can CGI the tears in.'”

After the experience, she started to question her acting abilities. “Am I not good enough? Are my instincts and my emotions not good enough? Do people hate them so much that they don’t want me to be a person? Am I not allowed to be a person in my work? And so I just said, “F*ck it. I don’t care about this business anymore.”

Fortunately, Alba continued to work in Hollywood.

 

The cast of Infinity War made a music video

Yes, they made a whole music video but, unfortunately, the world will never see it because everyone decided it was too embarrassing.

“We had this idea of making a music video,” said Anthony Mackie (The Falcon). “And we shot half of it, and then people realized how bad they were at dancing, and we couldn’t get anyone else to dance.”

“Mark Ruffalo dancing is a spectacle that everyone should behold once in their life. Once! You never wanna see it twice. … Mark Ruffalo, with polka dots and a skintight suit on, dancing. Awful.”

Aaaah now we want to see it even more!

Which one do you think is the weirdest one?
