* In ''Film/BadBoysII'', when Dennis Greene, who played Reggie, showed up for shooting, he was told by Martin Lawrence's bouncer that he mustn't look into Lawrence's eyes or talk to him, and Lawrence himself was subsequently nasty to him. It was all a ploy arranged by Creator/MichaelBay, who wanted the boy to be genuinely scared of Lawrence. Greene also wasn't told about the gun that he would be threatened with by WillSmith.

* In ''Film/IndependenceDay'', no one warned Will Smith that the filming location in Utah contained decomposing brine shrimp which smelled absolutely aweful. Will clearly noticed and reacted with "AND WHAT THE HELL IS THAT SMELL?!!" This scene was [[ThrowItIn kept in the film]].

** While filming ''Film/TheAbyss'', Cameron kept the cameras rolling after Ed Harris had run out of oxygen, capturing the actor's real panic. When he got out of the tank, Harris went up to Cameron and punched him. Harris has said he would never work with Cameron again. Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio was forced to go through the resuscitation scene so many times she got angry and stormed off the set when they ran out of film stock. The cast's nervous laughing at her revival was genuine as a result of dealing with the stress.

* For ''Film/LorenzosOil'' when recording Lorenzo's dialogue director George Miller would press down on ''Creator/ElizabethDaily''s stomach and ribs to make her voice sound strained.

* Creator/AkiraKurosawa did this in ''Film/{{Throne of Blood}}'', in the climactic sequence where his Theatre/{{Macbeth}} analogue is being fired upon by dozens of archers. The arrows that actually hit Lord Washizu, or miss narrowly, were pulled by strings behind the walls; the ones that miss by a larger margin were ''actually shot at him'' by expert marksmen on the set. Needless to say, ToshiroMifune's display of blind terror is not entirely acted.

** When directing ShirleyTemple, Ford needed her to cry. So he asked the stage manager to inform her that her dog had been killed by a car, right before flipping on the cameras. What is captured on film is one of the best moments of Miss Temple's career.

** ''Franchise/StarWars Episode III: Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' has another Vader related example. After Vader's body is reconstructed and he is given his life supporting suit of armour, he breaks off of his table to take a few steps forward. Hayden Christensen was not told that the helmet and boots would be weighted, lending an authentic sense of not yet being used to the cumbersome suit Vader would wear for the rest of his life.

*** The laser scene. The scene was shot with special effects technicians crouched under the table, burning through it with a blowtorch. There was a mark to show where they needed to stop burning. They didn't. SeanConnery's distress is extremely obvious and he was apparently furious once filming was over.
