Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting struggled to work with Kevin Hart and Josh Gad because they kept laughing during scenes.
The ‘Wedding Ringer’ star has admitted that she and her co-stars, Kevin Hart and Josh Gad, were constantly laughing on set and ruining the film’s takes.
When asked who ruined the most takes, she said: ”No, I laughed a lot. Kevin laughs a lot actually. Josh and I laughed a lot too. We all were very unprofessional. We laughed all the time.
”But Kevin, he could be so funny; he would just go off on these tangents and because we all knew we weren’t going to use it, we just started dying laughing. It was endless laughter; I just look at the poster and laugh.”
Despite admitting that she did cause a few takes to be redone, the 29-year-old actress quipped that her co-star was the worst.
She joked: ”I didn’t really wanna put that out there, because I didn’t want to offend Kevin, but he was terrible. Every take, laughing.
”There’s probably actually an entire movie that will be released of just Kevin’s bloopers, which is gold.”
Kaley also praised the film’s director, Jeremy Garelick, admitting that he gave the cast the ”freedom” to follow their instincts.
She continued to Collider: ”This script has been going around for a long time, it’s had a lot of different titles. I’ve known Jeremy for a while but I’ve never worked with him so I was so excited to be able to work alongside him.
”He’s just a cool director, he’s a cool guy. He’s a great writer – he’s so funny. And I think he’s relatable to actors; he doesn’t feel like there’s separation. He kind of gets in there with you. I mean, the freedom he lets you do whatever you feel you need to do. That was just so awesome.”
Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting confessed her strange addiction on Ellen this week: decongestant nasal spray.
The Big Bang Theory actress revealed her recent nose surgery was not a nose job, but actually the result of repeatedly misusing the common OTC treatment for nasal congestion. “I was actually really addicted to nose spray. Like, Afrin. Like, for years,” Cuoco told Ellen DeGeneres. “At awards shows I would have to pick out the right clutch so I could fit my Afrin in it, and I’d be under the table snorting it. I’m surprised there are no photos.”
Cuoco explained just how hooked she was: “I couldn’t get enough,” she says. “It was such a problem that I ruined my sinus, so I had to get it fixed. I actually made it completely worse — and [my doctor] said I had to stop.”
Although they do work for congestion, nasal sprays can actually be incredibly addictive, according to Madeleine Schaberg, MD, an ear, nose and throat specialist at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai. They’re also all over-the-counter treatments; for similar sinus issues doctors typically prescribe nasal spray medications containing steroids and antihistamines precisely because they are not addictive.
“The problem with these sprays is that they work on receptors in the blood vessels of the nose, shrinking vessels to decrease swelling and clear the nose quickly,” Schaberg tells Yahoo Health. “But if you use a spray for more than five days or so, these receptors become used to the spray and it will have the opposite effect; you get rebound swelling, which will block up the nose again as blood vessels expand.”
Once this happens, it’s not like a cocaine addiction, says Schaberg, where you have a physiological “need” or craving for another fix of the decongestant. Instead, you may unconsciously use more and more of the spray, thinking it will clear your nasal passage of “congestion.” Problem is, if you’ve been using for days, you now have rebound swelling — so, although you’ll feel the urge and spray again, it won’t help you breathe for long. Your swelling will return.
