I’ve always wondered if actors or people who work on movie sets get to take any souvenirs after a film wraps.
I bet the guys and gals on the crew probably can’t pick and choose as they please, but you better believe that actors get to take home some goodies.
Here are 10 Hollywood actors who took home some pretty awesome items from the movies they worked on.
1. Simon Pegg
Simon Pegg managed to take his Starfleet badge from Star Trek: Into Darkness home with him. Pegg said, “On the first film, every day we’d hand back our badge and I had a Starfleet ring. This one, I stole my badge. It was on my costume when I got back to my trailer and it’s a beautiful little brass thing. And I put it in my bag.” Can’t blame Scotty for that one.
2. Robert Downey Jr.
The big movie star pulled a stunt his character Tony Stark would’ve been proud of — he had a 30-foot prop delivered to his office. Downey said, “On the last Avengers, there’s this scene where there’s this ‘A’ which is probably 30 feet tall, and I’m looking at it, and we’re shooting in England, and I go, ‘I need that in my office in Venice. About two weeks ago, a wheeler showed up, I’m like, ‘What the heck is this doing here?’ And they go, ‘This is the ‘A’ you asked for.’ And I go, ‘They brought it?’ So now we have a massive Avengers ‘A’ that will be prominently placed.”
I wonder how big his office is…
3. Chris Pratt
You know Pratt had to swipe that stylin’ jacket he wore in Guardians of the Galaxy. And he did just that.
4. Mark Wahlberg
If you’ve seen Boogie Nights, you’ll never forget the final shot. Mark Wahlberg unzips and we see, ummm, his rather large prosthetic penis. The actor took the prop home and said, “I used to keep it in my desk drawer, and I’d take it out and slap my friends in the face with it. I don’t keep many things from my movies, but that just seemed to have personal significance. [I] didn’t think there would be that much interest in it but maybe I can at some point sell it at auction for charity.”
5. Dakota Johnson
The 50 Shades of Grey actress stole the underwear she wore in the sexy film because “they were comfortable.” Johnson admits she also took a flogger and it’s sitting in her garage collecting dust.
6. Chris Hemsworth
The original Thor’s hammer sold for $50,000, but Hemsworth has multiple replicas from the film in his possession. Hemsworth said, “I’ve got five. One’s in the toilet. It’s next to the toilet, if you need some assistance… Often, people stay in there a little longer and I think it’s because of the hammer. It’s pretty heavy, and one of my sons in particular who’s a beefy little kid certainly is sort of like Papa look, looking I can do it. [Then drops it], so the hammer’s got a few dents in it and scratches.”
7. Daniel Radcliffe
The Harry Potter star decided to go small, but significant with his movie takeaway. Radcliffe kept his glasses at the end of each production. He said, “The ones from the first film are absolutely tiny now, but they are very sweet. They are all lens-less as well. There was rarely ever any glass in the actual glasses, because of filming problems with reflections.”
8. Emma Watson
Radcliffe’s co-star Emma Watson also pillaged the sets of the Harry Potter films, taking her invisibility cloak, wand, and the time-turner.
9. Jennifer Lawrence
Lawrence kept the jacket and boots she wore in The Hunger Games, and said the items are currently collecting dust in her closet.
10. James Caan
And to end on a creepy note, Mr. Caan liked the Royal 10 typewriter he used in Misery so much he took it home.
