The Best Unscripted Actor Reactions in Hollywood History 》

When a movie is really good, we tend to praise the script. After all, it took amazing writers to come up with an engaging plot and killer dialogue. Or we praise the director because he was able to coax such specific reactions out of his actors.

But would you believe some of the best moments in film history were unscripted and unplanned? It’s true: sometimes, actors react in unexpected ways. And instead of ruining the scene, it ends up being one of the most memorable parts of the movie!

To get a better idea of what we’re talking about, let’s take a closer look at the best unscripted actor reactions in Hollywood history.

Julia Roberts in ‘Pretty Woman’

Are you a fan of Pretty Woman? In that case, you probably remember the iconic scene where Richard Gere snaps the lid of a jewelry box onto Julia Roberts’ fingers. This results in a peel of laughter from Roberts that helps to highlight the intense chemistry between their characters.

However, this scene was originally intended for a gag reel rather than the movie proper. And director Gerry Marshall wanted to shock Roberts (who was very tired after partying the night before) awake. Therefore, her laughter was one of genuine surprise, and it was delightful enough to make this one of the most memorable scenes of the movie.
