This foreign born A- list actress who is a very good actress and has been nominated/won for her acting says her A-/B+ list co-star has not shown up for filming of a movie sober even one day.
He has been fired from lots of things for his drinking.
He and the substance abusing offspring are probably not the best match as a couple because of it.
John Michael McDonagh calls Garret Hedlund ”a bit of a prick” during recent Q&A
John Michael McDonagh’s no stranger to controversy and feels no need to guard himself against the type of comments that’d make publicists wince.
If anything, the director of The Guard and co-writer of Calvary seems to enjoy it. In a recent Q&A at SXSW for his upcoming film, War On Everyone, McDonagh was quizzed about the casting choices for the film. One actor who was considered was Garrett Hedlund, star of Tron: Legacy and Unbroken.
McDonagh, however, had a few choices words for Hedlund. “We had another guy, but he was kind of a prick. Garrett Hedlund.”
You have to understand that most Q&As are usually the most boring affairs. It’s usually talking about how everyone loved everyone, how the set was a really fun place, blah, blah, blah, blah, mention the film’s name a few times.
To get a director speaking up and, on the surface at least, being honest about what he thinks is pretty amazing. More of this from directors and actors, please and thank you.- Source
