Finally, another slap to discuss!
As real-life husband and wife, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw have experienced quite a bit throughout their 25-year marriage. So, when it came time for them to play a married couple on the Yellowstone prequel series 1883—their first-ever acting job together—Faith took the job seriously. Like very, very seriously.
“There was a scene that we did where she had to slap me,” Tim told Jimmy Fallon on the May 18 episode of The Tonight Show.
“That was not a real slap,” Jimmy assumed. “That was a TV slap.”
Come on, Jimmy, you should know Faith Hill doesn’t play around!
“No, that was a real slap,” Tim assured Jimmy. “We talked about it before. We don’t want to do a TV slap. We want to do a real slap, but after about the eighth take, I was concussed a bit.”
Alright, we’ve heard of method acting but this might be a little extreme.
