Christopher Nolan is one of the most credible filmmakers across the globe. The content he delivered over the years, has earned him a loyal fan base. Out of his great piece of works, one name that always strikes our mind is Interstellar. It featured Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, and others in key roles.
Described as a modern-day classic by the fans, Interstellar opened to positive reviews from the critics. The film was even loved by the ticket paying audience. On the commercial front, the film made $677 million globally. On IMDb, it has a rating of 8.6 out of 10. Every department of the film was praised, but it wasn’t all ‘bling-bling’ journey for the team during the making.
During filming one of the scenes set in Iceland, actress Anne Hathaway suffered hypothermia. The reason behind it was, that her astronaut suit was left open while shooting the scene in the extremely chilled water. It is learned that Anne spoke about the same with Nolan. As per the filmmaker, she was only five minutes away from dying. But she still continued in such conditions.
Speaking about the same, Anne Hathaway said, “I was just really, really, really cold and it’s not that Chris sent me off to get warmed up. Wimps don’t last long on his set,” as per screenrant.com.
Sheer example of dedication, isn’t it?
Meanwhile, once Anne Hathaway said that Hollywood filmmaker Christopher Nolan does not allow chairs on his sets as he feels that “if they’re sitting they’re not working”.
As per the report in Variety, Hathaway said, “He doesn’t allow chairs, and his reasoning is, if you have chairs, people will sit, and if they’re sitting, they’re not working. I mean, he has these incredible movies in terms of scope and ambition and technical prowess and emotion. It always arrives at the end under schedule and under budget. I think he’s onto something with the chair thing.”
