According to some sources, in 1974 during the filming of Chinatown, Faye Dunaway attempting to understand the motivations of her character came to her director, Roman Polanski for direction, he reportedly merely yelled: “Say the fucking words. Your salary is your motivation!.” Worse still, when one of the actress stray hairs threatened to ruin a shot, Polanski plucked the offending strand from Dunaway’s head without even considering calling in make-up. Dunaway got her own back when, after her director refused to let her take a loo break, she threw a coffee cup full of urine in his face. Polanski’s later description of his lead actress as “a gigantic pain in the ass” seems fitting.
When several reporters tried to ask Dunaway about it she replied:
“I think you’ve brought up something that is so distasteful, you know very well, I am a lady and you were completely insulting.” “I won’t respond to that. That doesn’t even deserve the dignity of a response. I don’t know the details of that. It is absolutely ridiculous … This from the Guardian? I don’t believe it! It is insulting that you would even bring it up! My God … I turned down the Mail to do this!”
