Goldblum Eats Dirt

Jurassic Park star Jeff Goldblum literally ate dirt for his latest film role.
The movie star plays a Holocaust survivor who battles insanity in Adam Resurrected, and in one scene, director Paul Shrader insisted he swallow mouthfuls of mud.
Goldblum explains, "When we shot that scene towards the end of the movie in the graveyard, Paul said, 'You've done some extravagant things, so this calls for something simple.' It was the moment I was supposed to lose my mind and we fashioned the scene where I'm eating this flour.
"We did a take, and I'm crying, and snot is coming out of my nose and he said, 'That's great, but in this next bit get a handful of dirt from the mound of the grave and put it in your mouth and eat it.' I said, 'Oh that's good, that's crazy. Do we have anything edible like dirt?'
"He said, 'No, just eat the dirt.' Then he got a moundful of dirt in his hand and he ate it. I said, 'Paul, okay I'll do it!' I think we both had something of a deep experience."
