Hank Azaria - Hank Azaria Kept Losing His Teeth Shooting The Smurfs

Actor Hank Azaria was forced to re-shoot scene after scene of his new movie The Smurfs because the fake teeth he had to wear kept flying out of his mouth.
The Godzilla star spent the first two hours of his day in the make-up chair while shooting the family comedy to transform himself into the evil character Gargamel.
But he reveals his toothy grin caused a series of delays during production because the fake dentures wouldn't stay put.
He tells WENN, "They gave me a set of teeth right in the special effects shop. Those teeth would fly out of my mouth a lot every time I yelled or any vibration would make them dislodge. Many a take was ruined because the teeth would come flying out, which was not a great moment."
However, there was one part of his character's behaviour that Azaria had fun with: playing around with his feline co-stars - although he assures animal lovers the pets were well looked after on set.
He says, "I find them amusing and I enjoyed throwing cats in the movie. No cats were harmed I must say but I did get to toss the cat quite a lot. The good thing is cats don't care because they just land on their feet and move on as if they meant it to happen."
