Oh No-ah! Emma Watson Got Sick On The Set Of Noah After Director Banned WHAT?! You Won't Believe What He Told Her!

This seems a little harsh!

Director Darren Aronofsky is irrefutably an amazing director, but this sounds a bit too far — one of his stars, Emma Watson, fell ill because he thought it was a good idea to ban bottled water to stay in tune with the film's environmental concerns.

Emma plays Noah's adopted daughter Ila, and filming can be harsh — especially when you're shooting a big budget fantasy epic, with some shoots taking place at 4 am.

It was during those scenes that Emma was "tired and delirious" on set, and so thirsty that she accidentally drank a mug of stagnant water!

We get the idea behind this, but you better be ready to fill the void that plastic bottles of water leave behind once banned! It sounds like responsible irresponsibility!

Emma revealed how sick she got on set, saying:

"Because of the storm, Douglas [Booth] and I ended up shooting most of our scenes between 4am and 7am - and at that time I never function well. 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.

Everything we used had to be recycled or recyclable. Having no water bottles on set at five in the morning, when you're exhausted and delirious, wasn't ideal. 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 – so three months. I was so ill."

So did Darren go fill up a reusable cup of water for Emma himself?

Nope! He did the opposite: he told her to "use" her illness in the scene!

She continued:

"I came in the next day and was like, 'Darren, I don't think I can do this, I'm really sick.' He was like, 'Use it for the scene.' And I turned round to the bus and was like, 'Is he joking? He is joking right?' and there was deadly silence."

All of this comes at a time where the film's controversies and struggles are more apparent than ever. Executives at Paramount cut up to six diff versions following negative reactions from test screenings for US religious audiences, but Darren ended up winning the battle ensuring that his cut, his vision, will be the one the world sees.

Seriously, we're ALL FOR conservation and helping the world, but there needs to be something in place if you're going to ban the easiest way to access healthy hydration!

    well this is not Darens foult but assistants that there was no water it is not a proplem to get fresh water that is not from a bottle and as harsh as it may seem it is the "thing" of directors to encourage their actors to use something painful to make their acting better

    whynot get a thermos?

    Why wasn't there a communal water cooler then? With biodegradable or recyclable cups?

    This is an ivy-league educated girl we are talking about. Isn't she smart enough to speak up for herself and say I'm thirsty. You know there are 100s of ways to drink water that don't involved plastic bottles.

    Pack your own stainless steel water bottle every day. I've never used plastic and never will, but you have to keep the thing clean in between.

    What's wrong with water in glass bottles? They still sell them somewhere, I am sure… And please, don't tell me the producers cannot afford to supply it. Bloody environmentalist idiots.

    Am I the only one wondering why did she have a three month old water in her trailer? Doesn't she clean at all herself or is she expecting everything to be done for her.
    Also, sounds stupid for me to go bad mouthing your latest director that has just given you a change to work with famous actors. Emma isn't in-demand at all and I don't think this helps her on bit.
