Michael Shannon - Michael Shannon Left Embarrassed After Drooling On Leonardo Dicaprio
Actor Michael Shannon was left red-faced on the set of Revolutionary Road after drooling on co-star LEONARDO DiCaprio as the cameras rolled.
The actors were shooting their last scene of the day together when Shannon made the filming faux pas - but the Titanic star didn't even notice.
He says, "We had been shooting all day long... and the last shot we were doing was with Leonardo DiCaprio. It was a close up and there's a part in the scene where I have to lean and get in his face and I say the word, 'Comfy,' and we had been there for like 13 hours and I lean in this poor guy's face... and I say, 'Oh, you wanna be comfy?'
"And right as I said that, this thing of drool comes right out of my mouth and lands right on his crotch. And I'm just looking down at his crotch, at this little perfect circle of drool and I feel so bad, I like, lose focus. All I can think about the rest of the scene (is)..., 'He's going to be really mad when the take's over and yell at me'."
Shannon continues, "So as soon as the take is over I ran up to him and I say, 'I'm so sorry that I drooled on you' and he said, 'I don't know what you're talking about.' He was in the zone."
