Funniest/craziest thing that has happened on shoot set?
I was on set and as I was shooting and I was on set and as I was shooting and I was on set and as I was shooting and the photographer was shooting we were both in our zones. He bends to take a seat on the ground and as he was sitting he makes a noise with his mouth “uuuffff” and as he makes that noise he farted-_- it was super awkward but I pretended I didn’t hear anything and kept shooting normally. But we both know what we heard. LMAO!
Finish this sentence: If you want to spoil me rotten… Take me to jump on trampolines all day!!
