Washington (ANI): Actor Billy Bob Thornton surprised his co-star Susan Sarandon by pasting photos of the actress all over his trailer on the sets of their new film comedy MR. Woodcock. Thornton is playing Sarandon's tough sports teacher fiance in the film and was desperate to break the ice with his co-star. Thornton then decided and planned a prank to get the actress" attention, which involved downloading her old snaps from the Internet.
"We didn't know each other before this, so me and a couple of friends came up with a plan to get her attention," Contactmusic quoted Thornton, as saying. "I put up pictures of Susan in my trailer from like when she was in her first movies all the way to the present day. They were all over the walls. "Then I invited her in and never mentioned them and acted like everything was normal. I just wanted to make her nervous and make her think that I was some kind of weird stalker of hers. It kind of worked," he added.
Sarandon asserted that the prank worked quite well. "We were talking and all of a sudden I realise there are hundreds of pictures of me... things I hadn't even seen," Sarandon said. "He got worried because at first I didn't say anything, but then eventually I was like, 'What's wrong with this picture,'" she added.
