I have been saving this one for a few months in anticipation of this week and when everyone bis ready to see the movie. Over 2,000 screenings are already sold out and the reviews are great. But what happened while the movie was being made? Someone in the cast who was shooting almost everyday filled me in on every detail. They are also one of the stars of the blind. I am going to let her tell it in her words with just a little editing by me to add the identifiers.

"From the first time all of us were together, it was pretty amazing. I think we were all excited to be part of a movie that was going to be a big hit. This was not just any movie. We all knew we won the f**king lottery by being cast in the movie and it was not about the craft or anything else, it was about us making it as actors and actresses and having the opportunity to be known.
From day one, I knew this now B+ actor, but relatively unknown actor wanted me. I wanted him. Problem? We both had other people in our lives. So, after a few days of flirting on the set a million miles from our partners, we decided f**k it and we f**ked. Like crazy. Like rabbits. Everywhere. We needed to get it out of our system and we did. Then the next thing you know he is dumping his celebrity girlfriend and telling me he wanted to be with me and then I kind of woke up and realized I loved my boyfriend. It took a looong time before he would speak to me again, but he did manage to get back together with his celebrity girlfriend and she visited once. Idiot.
There is another male lead, but honestly, there are no sparks and it is only because we became good friends and that he is such a good actor that you see any sparks with him on screen too. For as many young people as there were there were not a lot of drugs around. Tons of boozing, underage and otherwise, but it was mainly the "grownups" as we called them that were treating the woods of North Carolina like their very own hot box. One of the grownups is so damn sexy that I almost forgot my vow to be faithful to my boyfriend after my slip. Oh, I did slip one other time, but it was just making out. I think that guy was gay anyway.
So, this sexy hot grownup. Smoked pot everyday and the sexiest body I have ever seen. Seriously. He might be older, but when he speaks and moves, people look. Total pot head though. The only person I saw keep up with him was the girlfriend who visited the actor I had sex with and this other B++ list now movie actor but got started in televison. The thing is about our sexy actor/celebrity is that he kind of likes them young. Not young like one of the other former B+ list actors likes them young. That guy does not care how old you are but you better look 15 or he is not going to be interested. He gave everyone the creeps and he was always showing up in strange places. He was married too and he told people he had married his mistress after cheating on his wife with her. Creep. He was way into this about to be a B+ lister who is way under age. I don't know if they ever did anything because she kept to herself and thought she was better than all of us. She thought she was mature so she might have thought it was cool to have sex with guy 20 years older than her, but I don't know for sure. They did spend a lot of time together in their trailers and his hotel room.
Going back to the sexy actor, at first he was hitting on this B list actress from television and movies and one very hit network show and we all thought they made a great couple. Turns out though she was interested in him, but he turned her down. He ended up having sex with this production assistant who was 18 and got the job because her dad owned some buildings we used for filming. He was always very nice to her, but she was in love with him and everyone was jealous of her.
There was one actor who I mentioned above who was a pothead. He was basically treating this movie as his personal playground. It did not matter if you were gay or straight or old or young, he was going to hit on you and if you were up for it he was going to have sex with you The guy must have had sex with two different people each day and is married so it was kind of disgusting. He was probably the biggest star that everyone wanted to meet when he was on set and he knew it. I also heard he took photos of a lot of the girls he had sex with. He never tried to hit on me, but he did hit on this girl he thought was 20 because of how she looks but was really 12. I also have never seen anyone so stoned act that well. He was very good.
What else? One pregnancy for sure during filming. Multiple breakups and getting back together. Always funny when a girlfriend or boyfriend would visit and everyone would pretend that the other party had been totally faithful. No one was faithful except this one older actor who is so good. He was about to get married and he was such a good actor and behaved himself. He was about the only one. It was like people had never been away from home before. I hope this was what you were looking for.
