Theroux Gets Old Bar For Free
CHARLIE'S ANGELS: FULL THROTTLE hunk JUSTIN THEROUX pulled a few favours from the owners of a New York bar he once worked at - so the cast and crew of his new film could use the place to shoot scenes for free.
The budget on the actor's new film Dedication was tight and so when Theroux learned the producers were looking to cut costs on a bar location, he offered up East Village haunt Von, where he once worked.
Theroux says, "I think they thought I was gonna come in with a digital camera and some friends, and then 50 trucks pull up and business was shut down.
"They were, like, trying to stick me for more money. They gave it to me for free and they were like, 'Maybe we should get a thousand bucks for this.' I'm like, 'No, we agreed to nothing.'
"Actually the crew stayed after hours, drinking, and ran up a big tab, so they ended up getting some money for it."
