Posted on

A movie star’s life isn’t always glamerous, especially when you’re shooting somewhere exotic. In a Sirius XM Town Hall interview, Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas sat down with Entertainment Weekly and People editorial director Jess Cagle to share some of their more difficult filming experiences.

According to Douglas, a shoot in Morocco was memorable, but not in a good way. “The head of the health department came down and we think one of your crew members has hepititis,” he shared. “So we’re going to ahve to quarantine your company for the next six weeks here in the desert in July and August.”

As for Rudd? Apparently his experiences haven’t been so intense. “I shot in Mexico City and it was really hot,” he joked.

The Sirius XM Town Hall with Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, hosted by EW and PEOPLE editorial director Jess Cagle, premieres this Friday at 1 p.m. ET on Entertainment Weekly Radio Sirius XM channel 105.
