Sarah Michelle Gellar said that while shooting “The Air I Breathe” she had to walk off the set, because Andy Garcia was so realistically violent. In the scene Andy had to beat up Brendan Fraser and then turn on Sarah’s character.
She said, “I had a hard time separating the scene from what is reality. And at one point I had to leave. I didn’t know the scary side of Andy. I’m a small girl, and he doesn’t let go. When he throws me up against a wall – that’s actuality.”
Welcome to the world of working with real actors. You’re not acting opposite fake vampires anymore or CGI dogs.
She calls getting thrown around by Andy Garcia “scary” and I call it “hot.”
