April Fool's Day: 5 Hollywood celebrities who pranked their co-stars
April Fool's Day is just another day in our lives but we sure love to make a fool out of our friends. And, celebrities are no different in this case. While some like George Clooney and Ellen DeGeneres are known pranksters, there are many others who are a surprise package in this case. Without much ado, let us celebrate five silent pranksters of Hollywood.
While shooting American Hustle, Jennifer Lawrence had made her discomfort clear during a graveyard shot in Boston. Sensing an opportunity to have fun, her co-stars Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper asked the film's props department to engrave Lawrence's name and birthdate on a fake tombstone. When Lawrence saw it, she freaked out, after which she noticed that her "death date" was April 1, 1913!
Jonah Hill was at the receiving end of Brad Pitt's cruel pranks on the sets of their film, Moneyball (2011). These are the things Pitt did: a) He painted Hill's on-set golf cart pink. b) Pasted a photoshopped photo of himself and Hill resembling the Wham! duo. c) The back of Hill's car had a fake genitalia and he (unknowingly?) drove around with it!
Apart from acting, Julia Roberts loves knitting. While filming Larry Crowne in 2011, her co-actor Tom Hanks noticed it and what he did next left her stumped. The Hollywood icon asked everyone on the sets to start knitting before Roberts arrived. "I come onto the set to work one day and every single person is knitting...65 men are knitting," she said about her experience.
On the sets of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Daniel Radcliffe faced a fart machine! "There's a shot in the great hall of all the kids sleeping in the great hall, and Alan Rickman decided he would plant one of those fart machines in my, uh, sleeping bag, and they waited and then unleashed this tremendous noise," Radcliffe narrated about this incident.
In 2015, Rihanna stealthily visited talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel's house one night at 1 am and went to his room. She started throwing confetti and dollar bills on his bed, pointed flashlights at him, played one of her songs at full volume, and danced crazily. Later, Kimmel joked, "It seemed like a UFO landed and I didn't know what was going on."
