Lmao Kubrick was a sadist. No wonder she ended up batshit crazy.
similarly there's a rumor that Alfred Hitchcock hit on tipi hedren on the set of the birds, and after she told him to piss off, he retaliated by doing messed up stuff to her. Like stuffing her in a birdcage full of guano and feathers, covering her in seed and feed then sending the titular birds after her, making her redo takes where she's attacked by birds again and again, and even verbally abusing her saying she'd never make it in hollywood after the film. Granted while some of this may be true its unclear how much is and how much was made up by hedren and latter by others in an attempt to retroactively smear Alfred.

I'm sort of ambivalent about it. Sure it's sadistic and monstrous, but if some Hollywood actors have to suffer so we can get The Birds or The Shining, I'm not that upset on their behalf really.

And in Eyes Wide Shut, he did 80 takes of Tom Cruise walking through a door.

That's no big deal. Tom Cruise should be used to doing the same thing over and over on command from his cult experiences.
In Hollywood or Scientology?


Speaking of eyes wide shut, there's a conspiracy theory that Stanley Kubrick made the film in attempt to warn the world about the secret inner workings of the Illuminati. He added in copius amounts of sex to where it's practically porn as a way to distract the higher ups at Warner Bros who would definitely be members. They'd have him censor all the sex and nudity without taking the Illuminati symbolism and secrets into consideration.


Unfortunately they DID catch on to what Kubrick was doing, censored the film and ordered him to be unpersoned. Officially on the record, Stanley Kubrick died of heart failure, but I let could very well have been sodium phentonaly

While nuclear power plants produce much more radiation, coal plants release a lot more radiation into the environment.
The fly ash by-product released has higher concentrated amounts of naturally occurring radioactive material (uranium/thorium). It releases up to 100x more radiation than a nuclear plant that generates the same amount of energy.
*not considering nuclear accidents lol*

It's unknown if Kevin Costner really did have ILM use cgi to cover up a receding hairline during production of waterworld, Costner has firmly denied this rumor for years, and considering how 22 years later the opposite couldn't be done convincingly with Henry Cavill's moustache in Justice league, it's highly unlikely.

This "joke" may have originated in a Mad Magazine spoof that joked about Costner using the infamously overblown budget on frivolous spending and self indulgence, something not too far off from reality considering Costner stayed in an oceanfront villa with a butler, chef, and private swimming pool, for $4,500 per night.


On the bright side Hawaii made 35 million dollars in economic income due to the production of Waterworld.
