London, March 18 (IANS) Scottish actor Gerard Butler fell sick on the sets of his new film 'The Bounty Hunter' after eating 27 burritos for one scene.
Butler was required to munch on the snack for a funny scene, but the director re-shot the moment 27 times, reports starpulse.com.
The actor was so determined to make each take as real as possible, he ate a fresh burrito every time.
'It's funny because there's a way to learn to eat on camera when you just put small amounts in your mouth and make it look like you're eating a lot. I'm not very good at that so that first day, I literally had 27 burritos,' said Butler.
'It was a scene in a restaurant and I'm just stuffing them in, pouring hot sauce all over them too and chowing them down. Every scene I had to start with a fresh one. By the end of that day I was so ill, but it had to be real.'
'I remember the director saying, 'You don't have to eat in every scene.' But I just said, 'Look, it's important',' he added.
