• German actress Franka Potente says she had a drink to ease her anxiety before a romantic scene with Johnny Depp in the 2001 film "Blow." But she told New York magazine, the move backfired, causing her to slur her way through the scene.
"We were shooting in a bar in Los Angeles and there was a power outage or something, we had some extra time, and the bartender was like, 'Oh, Johnny Depp and everyone, you have to have a drink. Ah, you're German, okay, let's have Jagermeister.'
"And I was really nervous that day. I had a lot of lines I had to do a Boston accent or something, and it was so hard, and I was really affected because I had too much Jagermeister. I was young, I didn't know any better."
