Not following the script, improvising or making mistakes in movies and TV series, as well as in life, is not always a bad thing, quite the contrary!
Be more lenient with yourself because even high-level professionals make mistakes, we are often told that one learns from mistakes and it is so but … few tell us that sometimes it is precisely from those that iconic or revolutionary things are bornnot from absolute perfection, if it exists.
Here are some impromptu or blooper scenes from blockbuster movies and TV series that we’re thankful for haven’t been cut or twisted.
Hold fast: the iconic scene where Ross says Rachel’s name (aka Jennifer Aniston) at the altar while getting married to Emily was not in the original script.
David Schwimmer in fact had confused their names in another scene and the writers decided to exploit the confusion to create what is still one of the most shared and loved scenes by fans of the series, a symbol of the troubled love between the protagonists. .
THE PRINCESS DIARIES
Even falling can be a hit, particularly if you play the role of Mia, a rather clumsy and extravagant girl who suddenly learns that she is the heir to the Genovia throne. Anne Hathaway really fell from the bleachers, the thud is real, as is the laugh of the actress and the concern painted on the face of colleague Hector Elizondo.
This blooper matched too well with the character’s attitude and got it right in the final cut, appearing in the film.
But let’s come to a 1987 classic where love meets dance and improvisation, in a perfect cocktail that still makes the film very famous today.
Have you seen Dirty Dancing 50 times already? Well … the 51st look at it with the awareness that the iconic scene where Johnny and Baby crawl towards each other on the floor, playing playfully on the notes of Love Is Strangeit was just a warm-up to the main scenes, it wasn’t in the script.
The directors loved that moment and decided to include it in the film. Fiuuu thank goodness because it is perhaps one of the moments of greatest complicity and seduction between the protagonists.
The scene where Eleven collapses exhausted into Michael’s arms and bursts into tears after using all her energy to fight was actually a genuine reaction from actress Millie Bobby Brown due to the intense days of filming..
That collapse, however, was perfect for the drama of the moment and therefore was not cut. Ahhh if only we could take back ourselves in everyday life, who knows how many Oscar-worthy mental breakdown scenes we would give.
THE DARK KNIGHT
Heath Ledger’s brilliant interpretation as Joker he made history also thanks to the additions of the actor himself who reinterpreted the expressions, gestures and personality of the character in his own way, providing an indisputable added value.
Did you know that the scene where the Joker sarcastically claps his hands in the cell after witnessing Jim Gordon’s promotion is totally improvised? That smile then … and the surprised reaction of colleagues? A few seconds of pure art that earned an Oscar, unfortunately won after death, at the age of only 28.
