The occupation of the cats took their work very seriously.
In an interview with E! News, Rebel Wilson and Robbie Fairchild revealed some of the witty antics that the actors got into on the set of the film musical, one of which was a moment that might be a little too animal.
When asked if she ever smelled her actress' butt at a moment of methodical action, Wilson said, "I did. I got Sir Sir Ian McKellen smelled. " Yes, you read that correctly. Rebel Wilson smelled Sir Ian McKellen's ass.
When she continued: "Didn't smell so bad. I mean, that's in my memories, don't you think?"
Joking aside, Wilson said E! News that working on the film was "a once in a lifetime experience". "It's not often that a cast is put together that has the world's best dancers from all disciplines. Ballet, tap dance, street dance, contemporary dancers, parkour."
"And then some of the best singers in the world, like Jennifer Hudson ," she continued. "Pop singer Taylor Swift Jason Derulo . Legends of the screen like Dame Judi, Sir Ian McKellan, Ray Winston . I mean, everyone. Idris Elba … A couple of comedians participated. "
Wilson also revealed some of their funny improvised moments that made it into the final film. As Wilson said, "Sometimes we had jokes when Jason Derulo made his number. Jason was fantastic, but we invented our own little dance, how deep in the background. So if you look closely, you can see how we do little tricks make. "
The moments were so funny that the director of the film couldn't help but leave. " Tom Hooper we would make him laugh," she added. "And then, with one shot, he puts the camera on us and then some of it comes into the film. You will see it in Jason's number."
Wilson's co-stars Hudson and Ballerina Francesca Hayward were also E! News about the cat classes in which they had to participate. (Maybe they came up with the idea of sniffing each other's butts …)
As Hudson said about her cat studies: "The first thing that came to mind was how should we do one Be a cat? " And what is cat school? When we started it was a lot of fun, I learned a lot about cats and now I have a new understanding and appreciation for cats. And now I have two, I sit and watch them and I feel like I can understand them. "
And what did she call these two cats? Of course nothing more than Grizabella and Macavity, also known as the names of their and Elba characters in the film.
For her part, Hayward said that she had brought home some of her cat lessons. (Don't worry. It wasn't sniffing the butt.) The Royal Ballet dancer said that after wrapping up the film, "I think I started tapping people with one paw hand."
this whole cast really dedicated themselves to their roles.
