Bill Murray practised Japanese pick-up lines in sushi bar

Feb 11 2014, 7:16am CST | by

Bill Murray learnt Japanese by practicing his pick-up lines in a sushi bar.

The 63-year-old actor decided to get into character during filming of Sofia Coppola's 2003 movie 'Lost In Translation' in Tokyo by buying a cheeky phrase book and testing his flirting skills on the local chef.

Speaking in a fan Q&A on Reddit, he said: "I would go to sushi bars with a book I had called 'Making out in Japanese'. It was a small paperback book, with questions like, 'Can we get into the back seat?' 'Do your parents know about me?' 'Do you have a curfew?'

"And I would say to the sushi chef, 'Do you have a curfew? Do your parents know about us? And can we get into the back seat?'

"And I would always have a lot of fun with that, but that one particular day, he said, 'Would you like some fresh eel?' and I said, 'Yes I would'. So he came back with a fresh eel, a live eel, and then he walked back behind a screen and came back in 10 seconds with a no-longer-alive eel."

The star also recalled the "real fiesta" he had filming 2009 stop-motion animation 'Fantastic Mr. Fox' with the likes of George Clooney and Meryl Streep, claiming the all-star cast once got so drunk they couldn't stay upright.

Bill said: "It was great fun, because it just dragged on and on and on. And it was this fun bunch of people. First we went to our friend's farm, and we all stayed at her place for a handful of days while we recorded during the day and then at night we would have these magnificent meals and we would all tell stories.

"We had a lot of great food, a lot of great wine and great stories. It went on until people started literally falling from their chairs and being taken away.

"And then we had to go to another place and do it again, we went to George's place, but then something happen[ed] and the whole party broke up, and George said, 'You don't have to go, do ya'and I didn't, so we just kicked around Northern Italy for a while. It was a real fiesta."

AWARDS SEASON POST 2013-2014: The Contenders

Oct 1 2014 8:37pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Best Picture (Source)The race is most certainly on, with the early fall fests bringing everything from "Birdman" and "The Imitation Game" to "The Theory of Everything" and "Gone Girl" to the table. Subversive material from master filmmakers will give the critics groups a lot to chew on when they have their say later in the year, but broader plays like "Unbroken" and "Interstellar" could end up ticking off a ...
