Brody Lived On Bugs In Canadian Wilderness
Oscar-winner Adrien Brody suffered for his art on the set of new movie WRECKED - he survived a freezing night outdoors eating berries and bugs in preparation to play a car crash survivor stranded in the wilderness.
The stunt was a big test for the method actor because he was still recovering from a stomach illness he picked up in India - but he refused to let his condition put him off the challenge.
The Pianist star explains, "The sickness kind of knocked me down and weakened me, but I still decided to spend a night in the woods, eating insects in February in Canada.
"As unpleasant as that transition was, it helped me make the shift as quickly as possible."
