Performances on screen where the performer was stoned or drunk out of their mind
By her own admission, Melanie Griffith in "Working Girl"
Richard Dreyfuss must have been coked up in "The Goodbye Girl"
There was a scene in the Brady Bunch where Greg admits he was flying high on pot... the clip has him by the car out side of the garage, and his dad comes up and asks him something. And when he ran the clip, it was so obvious he was high.
I was also amused by Robert Reed rocking the casual version of the Full Cleveland (white shoes AND white belt).
Tea Leoni in DEEP IMPACT. Trust me.
"Richard Dreyfuss must have been coked up in 'The Goodbye Girl'"
Also in "Whose Life Is It Anyway?" where he gave an excellent performance, but now says that he doesn't even remember making that movie.
Kris Kristofferson in anything he ever did. Same with Nick Nolte.
Dreyfuss is out of control in this video. Was there a big fuss at the time? Nowadays it would be such big news if someone showed up at the Oscars like this.
Wasn't Robin Williams doing coke during Mork & Mindy?
It's most obvious during her "get outta here!!!" scene in "I Saw What You Did"
Liza during New York, New York. You can see the coke sweat when she sings the title tune.
Not a film but when she did the musical The Rink she kept little stashes of coke hidden in pockets of her costume.. it was an oversized sweatshirt as I recall. Lot of Liza snortin' back in the day.
Wasn't Robert Downey Jr stoned out of his mind during his whole stint on Ally McBeal?
Whitney said she had to get herself coked up daily for Preacher's Wife.
Tom Hanks on Oprah's final show. He was shit drunk! But he is a very good actor. I expected him to stumble over his words and although he was on the verge he kept pulling it together. It was the sort of drunk only experienced drinkers can manage.
I find Dreyfuss too insufferably arrogant to watch for longer than 10 seconds.
I am utterly convinced that Cherry Jones was stoned on weed when she did her bit part in "New Years Eve."
Her costuming is lovely, though. I will give her that. But she is either mildly to moderately stoned on weed or had allergies and took some Benadryl.
Juliette Lewis in that Terms of Endearment sequel.
That Brady Bunch clip at R2 is hysterical, knowing he was stoned at the time. I love when Cindy walks up, and Greg turns his head toward the car, then adjusts and turns the other way toward her voice. Awesome!
Daniel Radcliffe was binge drinking during the production shoot of the last two HP movies and later said in interviews that he was out of it in several scenes onscreen. I can't tell because Harry was always kind of a bland, blank slate type of character anyway.
Graham Chapman was constantly drunk on the set of "Monty Python's The Holy Grail"
I'm watching tea leoni in Deep impact right now. What should I look for? She does have quite a butch stance. Elbows out. But I'm not sure that's drug related.
River Phoenix in My Own Private Idaho
Martin Sheen in Apocalypse Now. The scene where he has a breakdown and smears blood on.his face. He was drunk and the blood was real. He did hurt his hand.
Melanie Griffith was flying on coke during the making of 'Working Girl.' She has admitted this herself, and said that one day on the set Mike Nichols took her aside and told her to get her act together.
The Cherry Jones Troll never disappoints.
Liza was probably doing coke during NYNY but so was Robert DeNiro and so was Marty Scorcese.
Vanity on American Bandstand in 1986 was blitzed beyond belief. I know Dick was saying, "Man, she's on some GOOD shit!"
Whitney Houston in THE BODYGUARD. She looks high as a kite during many of the dialogue scenes.
Harrison Ford in everything. Drunk and stoned.
R30 - Thanks! I knew she was on something, wasn't sure whether it was coke or downers (maybe it was both). She had noticeable weight fluctuations during the course of the movie, but I don't know in which order the movie was filmed.
The scenes in Working Girl where her face is bloated and her hair is a little longer (e.g. the scene where Tess and Mick leave Cyn's bridal party and get into an argument) were done after her short stint in rehab, I believe.
When "Cheers" ended its run Jay Leno did a live Tonight Show broadcast from the Bull and Finch pub in Boston. The whole Cheers cast was roaringly shit-faced, falling off their bar stools, vomiting backstage, etc.
Ted Danson and George Wendt apologized to Leno the next day, but Leno said the whole idea was just a "huge mistake".
I saw it and it was hilarious and cringe-worthy.
Harrison Ford is always stoned.
Any John Barrymore performance from the mid-1930s on up.
Montgomery Clift in Suddenly, Last Summer - drunk out of his mind.
Don't know the film, probably from the '70s, but a friend worked on it. John Carradine was so drunk they had to put him in a tub of cold water to try to sober him up.
David Janssen toward the end of the Fugitive was always drunk, and probably everything he did after that.
Jeffrey Hunter once the late '50s hit.
Watch a rerun of "Mork and Mindy" sometime to see Robin Williams coke-binging. It's excruciating.
Melanie Griffith partied HARD in the 80s.
All the Jackass guys, throughout the films and the tv show.
Tea Leoni had a deep impact on Madonna's pussy during the filming of A League of Their Own, but no drugs were involved.
Judy Garland in just about everything.
Hermann Prey the Austrian baritone come out drunk as a skunk at a Metropolitan Opera Gala celebrating its 25th anniversary at Lincoln Center. Can't remember what he sang, but he had all the telltale signs of intoxication, including the red swollen nose ala W. C. Fields.
Lindsay Lohan in Liz and Dick
Michael Fassbender was supposedly completely drunk when he was filming his dying scene in 300. Which led to some hilarious moments during filming that scene.
John Belushi in the Blues Brothers. There is the scene where he is sitting on top of the car watching the airplanes land. Dan Ackroyd says something like "come on let's go" and they get off the hood of the car. Belushi was so shit-faced in that scene he can hardly move.
Liza had a "happiness" clause in her contract for The Rink. The producers not only supplied her with drugs,the also supplied her with escorts. I guess she too "Arthur in the Afternoon" from The Act to heart.
Do Real Housewives count?????
R24 is confusing the side effects of pot with good acting.
Jack Nicholson, the Joker.
Kate Moss at every single fashion show in her entire career.
Lon Chaney Jnr - rumour has it that he was so much of a mess during his later "career" that to get him to perform, someone had to stand off camera waving a bottle.
Supposedly Chuck Barris was coked-up throughout the entire run of "The Gong Show".
Robert De Niro in "Taxi Driver". Especially in this scene; he claims the glassy-eyed look was due to staying awake 24 hours before shooting, but he's obviously fucked up.
