“This is a very strange scene to shoot. On the page it didn’t seem quite as sick as it did when we began shooting. It left us all with a very funny feeling in our stomachs. I think Benedict plays the predator brilliantly. And very against his natural character. He’s a very, very gentlemanly gentleman. Benedict was quite, kind of disturbed by the role he was playing and so we talked a lot about it and Juno was very supportive of him. In a way, it was more difficult for him to play the abuser than for Juno to play the abused. “

I have this weird reaction to minced garlic. Whenever I eat it, I have really horrible farts—weirdly awful. I had eaten a lot of it, and we got on a flight—packed flight—completely packed, and it was one of those situations where, you know, I was on the window side, and I didn’t want to get up, I figured I’ll—I felt something building up is what I’m trying to say. And I just let a little bit out, just little by little.

Long story short, I farted, and the guy behind me fainted. A flight attendant came over and splashed water on his face and sort of resuscitated him. And his wife or girlfriend goes, “I think I smell some gas”, and they said, “Ma’am, that’s impossible, all the fuel on the plane is stored in the wings so there’s none of it that comes anywhere near the fuselage. Absolutely impossible for there to be a gas leak.” They let it go.

About an hour and a half into the flight, I thought, “I’ll be more careful this time”. I farted again, the guy faints again. Flight attendants came, and his girlfriend says, “Somebody let out some gas”. They said, “Ma’am, we told you the gas cannot leak”. The woman sitting next to them said, “No, no, somebody has to go to the bathroom”
