Shoot of “A Beautiful Day…” was living hell: Tom Hanks

Published

on

Toronto, Sep 9 American actor Tom Hanks joked that the shoot of his latest film, “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”, in which he portrays the late children’s television star Fred Rogers, was a “living hell” due to the main character’s complexity.

Hanks told summary of the filming experience at a private press conference that the star and the rest of the production team held in Toronto, one day after the movie’s world premiere at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival, reports Efe.

The film focuses on the relationship between the mysterious icon of American kids’ TV, Mister Rogers (Hanks), and Lloyd Vogel, a reporter for the magazine “Esquire” played by American actor Matthew Rhys.

For one of the movie’s opening scenes, Hanks had to perform a complicated choreography in which he sings, takes off his jacket, puts on a sweater, takes off his shoes and ties his shoelaces while looking straight into the camera.

Hanks said it was a difficult scene that needed multiple takes until he succeeded in performing it correctly.

The film’s director, Marielle Heller said to the laughter of Hanks and the rest of the cast that they filmed exactly 22 takes.

Hanks’ laughter turned into surprise when Heller said she had made Hanks’ work much more difficult than necessary because in the original TV show, Rogers already had his sneaker laces virtually tied up to facilitate the choreography, something that did not happen in “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.”

Upon learning of Heller’s “carelessness,” Hanks said: “This movie is a living hell!”

Hanks said that he never liked Rogers’ show while growing up.

He added that “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” was a black-and-white programme that he never tuned into and the fact that the dolls that Rogers played with did not move their mouths when they spoke did not look believable to him.

However, Hanks explained that after seeing “a million” hours of Rogers’ tapes, he stopped questioning him.

The actor acknowledged that many years later, when he was an adult and someone showed him a clip on the internet of Rogers chatting with a child in a wheelchair, he changed his perspective.

He added that those were the reasons why he needed to be in this movie.

Los Angeles, Feb 19 : Singer Britney Spears was hospitalised after a dance move went wrong.

The 38-year-old was left with a fractured metatarsal bone and her foot in plaster. Her boyfriend, Sam Ashghari, shared photos of the star in a hospital on his Instagram page, reports mirror.co.uk.

He revealed that the singer had fractured one of a “group of five long bones in the foot, located between the tarsal bones of the hind – and mid-foot and the phalanges of the toes”.

Posting several photos and videos of themselves in hospital, Sam showed that Britney was laid up in the emergency room with a cast on her foot, on which the word “stronger” had been written.

Captioning the photos on Instagram, Sam wrote: “When you break something it tends to heal stronger specially when you’re my Girl. My lioness broke her metatarsal bone on her foot doing what she loves which is dancing.”

He continued: “Wishing her the best recovery so she can jump, run, and dance her butt off #stronger.”

The photos show Britney in good spirits as she sits on a hospital bed in a gown.

It is uncertain how long that the singer was in hospital, and how long her recovery time will be, but photos have surfaced online of Britney walking around in a boot, which could indicate that the accident may have happened last week.

Mumbai, Feb 18 : Colors TV issued a statement after a woman claimed that she quit her job at the channel after the “fixed” finale of Salman Khan-hosted show “Bigg Boss 13”.

“We at Colors would like to clarify that the individual who goes by the name Feriha (@ferihasays) is not employed or associated with our channel contrary to what she stated in her profile,” read a post shared on behalf of the channel on social media.

“The claims made by her against our channel, our spokespersons and talent are unfounded and not true. We request our fans and viewers to not believe any information coming from such inauthentic and unauthorised sources.”

While many were happy with actor Sidharth Shukla being announced as the winner of “Bigg Boss 13” on February 15, there were some who were not too thrilled about it.

A woman, identified as Feriha on Twitter, had written on social media: “I have decided to quit my job at @ColorsTV. I had a tremendous time working with the creative department but I can’t demean myself being part of a fixed show. The channel is keen on making Sidharth Shukla the Winner despite less votes. Sorry, I can’t be part of it.”

The show’s runner-up Asim Riaz had also dismissed rumours that the show was fixed in favour of Sidharth.
