Peeing in Actress's Bath

What’s the worst behaviour you’ve seen?

“There’s so much I… it’s amazing how quickly people change in this business. There was one guy who’d never been on a movie set before. And after just three days, he was holding out his water bottle and waiting for someone to take it. Three days. Some people just have it in them.”

And people just accept it?

“Well, yes, but it’s not like you get away with it. This actress was doing a scene in the bath and she kept complaining about the temperature, how it was too hot or too cold. So everyone pissed in it and put a bunch of bubble bath in afterwards so you couldn’t smell it! This stuff happens. That’s why I avoid asking for anything. I don’t want to get anyone’s piss on me.”

On the set of one of her earlier movies, Sharon Stone's prima donna act pissed off the crew so badly that they pissed into a bathtub before Sharon got into it for her scene.

China Daily
28 July 2014

By Ma Lie

A man in Beijing was detained by police for spreading an online rumor that more than 200 organ traffickers came to Beijing to steal children, reported on Monday.

The man, surnamed Zhang, saw a similar rumor online and failed to verify that it was true. Thinking it was fun, Zhang changed the site from another province to Beijing and shared the rumor with his friends by his mobile phone.

Zhang was detained for disturbing the social order and the case is under further investigation.
