Pissed Robert Downey Jr. left urine jars for David Fincher around Zodiak set

Director David Fincher (The Social Network, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) said that a pissed off Robert Downey Jr. would leave jars of pee around the set of Zodiac (2007)in protest of the long hours. Guess RDJ takes being “pissed” literally. Apparently the director’s use of digital cameras left less time for breaks, which infuriated the actor.

Fincher revealed this in Keanu Reeves’ documentary on filmmaking called Side By Side. Along with Fincher, Keanu interviewed star directors like Christopher Nolan, James Cameron, Martin Scorsese and George Lucas, which Keanu admitted to often having to beg for.

    Too funny. RDJ might have been thinking back a few years when a few unfilled urine samples led to imprisonment…how dare Fincher? 🙂

    The crazy thing in this article is not that RDJ left pee jars around the set (for some reason that does not surprise me), it’s that Keanu Reeves is directing a film! I don’t take Keanu as being the smartest cookie in jar!

      Lol. “The smartest cookie in the jar.” Something tells me you aren’t the sharpest pickle in the shed, either.
