Quentin Tarantino banned phones on set and this actress loves it
American filmmaker Quentin Tarantino has this rule on set that will make you go; WHAT?
According to actress Rumer Willis, who was part of the cast for Tarantino's latest film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, the actors weren't allowed to use or check their phones on set and even in between takes.
The star even mentioned that she hoped all filmmakers would follow Tarantino's extreme rule as it helped her in many ways.
She revealed that not having her phone actually made her have quality conversations with the other cast members.
"Most of all my stuff was with (co-star) Margot Robbie, who's so unbelievably lovely and so talented. It was amazing because we then just got to talk. You're talking with the wardrobe and everybody and just connecting more and being a part of the whole experience." Willis told the Huffington Post.
The actress also explained the reason why she agrees with Tarantino's rule, saying: "Normally, you walk off set, everyone is on their phone, checking Instagram, and you're immediately out of what you're doing. Then you have to kind of jump back in and get the engine restarted almost."
Willis isn't the only one who testified to this rule. Her fellow castmate, Timothy Olyphant also revealed that Tarantino would straight up fire anyone who is found using their phone during filming. Yikes!
He explained, "You're fired. Cell phone out? Done. No warning, nothing, you're going home. I'm not telling tales.
"We're not gonna be over there doing some other thing - Instagramming, working on your next script, or talking to your agent. We're here, and this is what we're doing, and we're going to take it really seriously,." Olyphant added.
Why does this remind us of strict high school rules all over again?
