10 Tiny Details Actors Requested For Movies

The purple lightsaber was Samuel L. Jackson's polite request.


It's no secret that A-list actors can get a little over-eager with their on-set requests.

Just look at Kevin Costner demanding his own $4,500-per-night oceanfront villa, complete with a butler no less, while shooting Waterworld. This was while most of the cast and crew were forced to live in chilly apartments. Yikes.

But perhaps more interesting than gross, self-indulgent excess are those small, comparatively reasonable requests that actors have made while playing major, often career-defining roles.

Whatever the reason, these 10 actors asked their directors for one seemingly insignificant detail to be added to their character, be it a piece of wardrobe, a few lines of dialogue, or even a certain forward-thinking man-scaping choice.

None of these details drastically altered their respective movie, plot, or character in any major way, but they clearly meant something to the actor all the same, no matter that many of them went totally unnoticed by most viewers.

You probably wouldn't call most of these actors divas for these requests - again, most - because it's as true in Hollywood as it is anywhere else: don't ask, don't get...
