Richard Dreyfuss claims Bill Murray was a ‘drunken bully’ on ‘What About Bob?’ set


The “Jaws” superstar made an awful claim alleging Bill Murray was nothing more than an “Irish drunken bully” during the shooting of their 1991 flick “What About Bob?” — a film in which Murray plays an obsessive-compulsive and neurotic patient who ends following his counsellor’s (Dreyfuss) family on holiday.

Talking with Yahoo! Entertainment in an interview printed on Thursday, the “American Graffiti” performer said: “Bill just got drunk at ceremonial dinner. He was an Irish drunken bully”

Dreyfuss, 71, recollected a night when he moves toward the funnyman to pre-read and alter to the script that he felt was a hysterical addition.

“He bought his face next to me, nose-to-nose and he shouted at the top of his lungs, ‘Everyone hates you! You are tolerated!’” Dreyfuss claimed of Murray, 68.

There was no time to respond because he rested back, and he took a contemporary glass-blown ashtray. He threw the ashtray at my face from far,” Dreyfuss added stated. “And it weighed approximately three-quarters of a pound. And he missed the shot. He tried to hit me. I got up and left.”

Along with Murray, Dreyfuss opened up to the outlet about Oliver Stone apparently telling him he looked “so old” when he represented Dick Cheney in the 2008 film “W.” and the time Harrison Ford and Bo Hopkins allegedly threw him into the shallow end of a swimming pool after the two of them had a booze-filled evening.

A representative for Murray did not instantly respond to Fox News’ appeal for comment.
