Darren Aronofsky, director of the in-producton “Noah” starring Emma Watson and Russell Crowe, flexed his eco-friendly muscles when he banned plastic water bottles on the set of his new film. This admirable and environmentally friendly approach to Hollywood filmmaking unfortunately had an unforeseen consequence when Watson was forced to consume a three-month old drink after filming an early morning scene.

Watson said in an interview with Wonderland magazine, “I was so tired one morning I picked up a mug from my trailer and drank some stagnant water that had been there for the duration. I was so ill.” She went on to say, “Having no water bottles on set at five in the morning, when you’re exhausted and delirious, wasn’t ideal.”

When the former “Harry Potter” star complained of feeling ill, Aronofsky told her to use it as fuel for her next scene. “Because the film has a pro-environment message, Darren didn’t want anyone drinking from plastic water bottles on set either. So that made things slightly harder,” said the 24 year old actress.

While we love an eco-friendly work environment, it’s also important to look out for the health of the employees as well as keeping the health and well-beings of animals and the planet a major priority. Perhaps next time making sure there are reusable bottles full of water handy for all the cast and crew, even on those early morning shoots.
