Richard Dreyfuss claims Bill Murray was a “drunken bully” on the set of their 1991 movie “What About Bob?”
“Bill just got drunk at dinner,” the 71-year-old actor said in a new interview with Yahoo. “He was an Irish drunken bully, is what he was.”
He went on to explain that one night Dreyfuss asked Murray, 68, to read a tweak in the script that he thought was funny.
“He put his face next to me, nose-to-nose and he screamed at the top of his lungs, ‘Everyone hates you! You are tolerated!’” he said.
He continued, “There was no time to react, because he leaned back and he took a modern glass-blown ashtray. He threw it at my face from [only a couple feet away]. And it weighed about three-quarters of a pound. And he missed me. He tried to hit me. I got up and left.”
The movie is about an obsessive-compulsive neurotic, played by Murray, who follows his new therapist (Dreyfuss) on vacation with his family.
A rep for Murray did not immediately return our request for comment.
