Movie acting is fun and desirable for all actors. When playing this or that character, the actors have to transform into him – to cut their hair, work on the figure, change habits, etc. Some roles can influence the lives of the people who perform them too much, radically changing it at the same time.
For example, some actors, after joint performance of roles in films, dispersed not only on TV screens but also in everyday life. And someone had to go through the loss of a loved one both in the cinema and in real life. Many actors are afraid to play roles where they have to lose something or someone.
However, they do not give up on them either. In the future, the fate of some of the actors exactly coincides with the life of the character they had to play.
The breakup of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
One of the most beautiful couples in Hollywood was considered exactly the pair of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Their union was so strong and harmonious that there was no doubt that someone would be able to destroy it. However, in reality, everything turned out to be different. Not the last role in the breakup of the couple was played by the joint fulfillment of romantic relationships in films, which turned out to be prophetic for them.
Angelina and Brad met in 2005 after playing in the movie “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”. In this motion picture, the actors had to defend their marriage and themselves from powerful firms that hired spouses-killers for mutual destruction. As in the movies, the couple had to prove to their fans for a long time that everything was serious between them since Brad Pitt’s fans could not forgive him for parting with actress Jennifer Aniston.
Ten years later, the famous couple starred in the same film again. This time it was the drama “Cote d’Azur”, where their characters had to go through a crisis in family relationships. Coincidence or not, but in reality, in the personal lives of Angelina and Brad, problems also began during this period. A year after these events, the actress filed for divorce.
Bereavement of Konstantin Khabensky
Back in 1998, at the very beginning of his acting career, the popular artist Konstantin Khabensky had to play the role of a young student entering a theater institute in the film “Women’s Property”. In the story, the guy fell in love with a famous actress, who was also a member of the selection committee. The quickly established love relationship was suddenly interrupted since, according to the scenario, the woman died of cancer, which became a serious trauma for the young man.
A short amount of time after the film’s release on the screens, Konstantin Khabensky met a woman he loved very much in real life. She turned out to be a journalist named Anastasia. In the two-thousandth year, the couple played a wedding, and a year later, they had a son, Vanya. However, after the joyful event, the doctors made a terrible statement – Anastasia was diagnosed with a brain tumor.
For eight years, Khabensky fought for the life of his beloved, but his efforts were never crowned with success. The death of his wife greatly shocked the actor and completely changed his outlook on life. Until now, Konstantin Khabensky cherishes his wife’s memory and deals with the foundation’s affairs, whose activities are aimed at helping children with cancer.
Alcohol addiction after playing a movie with David Duchovny
The famous Hollywood actor David Duchovny starred in more than one series (he received special fame for his performance in The X-Files), but it was the role of Hank Moody in Californication that became fatal for him.
According to the plot, Hank Moody is a writer who slowly but surely begins to drown in the abyss of forbidden pleasures. He sank to the very bottom on the TV screen, but problems also began because of this role in David Duchovny’s real life. The media began to leak information that the actor began to suffer from alcoholism and other addictions in reality.
The actor tried to restore his health for a long time in a special clinic, and he succeeded, but he failed to save his marriage. In 2014, David Duchovny divorced his wife and took custody of two children.
Soviet actress Nonna Mordyukova was very scared to play the role of Fedosya Ugryumova in the film “Russian Field”, because according to the script, she had to survive the death of her child, who, by the way, was played by the actress’s own son. The actress herself more than once recalled how scared she was to perform the very last scene – where the coffins stood, and the fallen border guards were buried. Mordyukova’s son Vladimir constantly reassured his mother, proving to her that this was just shooting, and in fact, he was alive.
Nineteen years later, Nonna Mordyukova had to re-experience the horror of losing her child, only now for real. At the age of forty, Son Vladimir died from heart problems caused by long-term intake of alcoholic beverages and drugs.
The British actress Michelle Dockery, who gained great popularity after her role in the TV series “Downton Abbey”, also had to go through the loss of a loved one. According to the plot, the character Michelle Mary Crowley married a young lawyer Matthew, who soon became the successor to Downton Abbey. According to the scenario, the girl’s family life was developing quite well. However, after the birth of his son, Matthew hurried home and crashed in a car accident without seeing the child.
In real life, Michelle Dockery also had to go through the loss of her lover. Her fiancé John Dinin was seriously ill, and after several years of unsuccessful struggle with the disease, he died.
Perhaps the role in the movie and real-life events are just coincidences in the fates of these people. But the facts speak for themselves. Many actors try to give up roles where there is death or other hardship. However, there are those among them who are ready to do anything for the sake of glory, no matter what.
