* The numerous rehashes of the very messy [[GameShow Game Shows]] ''[[DoubleDare1986 Double Dare]]'' and ''What Would You Do?'' on old-school {{Nickelodeon}} become much more memorable when one realizes that their host, Marc Summers, was suffering from an acute form of OCD (in particular, [[NeatFreak an obsession with keeping neat and clean]]) at the time.

* Creator/PeterSellers labored to get a film adaptation of ''BeingThere'' made for 7-8 years; it was one reason he revived his [[ThePinkPanther Inspector Clouseau]] character. He was willing to do ''everything'' within reason to play Chance the Gardener because he identified with him so much. This affected his personal relationships with his then-wife and children to varying degrees as he took on the character's persona. Worse, making the film partially contributed to the further deterioration of his health, as his heart problems had returned with a vengeance by the late 1970s. He was willing to gain weight to play the role and hide an attack from insurers and doctors because he knew they might force him to put off making the film if they found out. He died less than a year after it was released. Beyond the performance serving as his CrowningMomentOfAwesome, there's the irony that he had to struggle so much to play a character who hardly does a thing to rise to power and lives in a perpetual state of unaware, untroubled contentment.

* Although ''Videogame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow2'' got mediocre reviews with critics, there were quite a few people who did enjoy the game, elevating it to CultClassic status. For these people the news of the game's TroubledProduction did invoke this trope.

** This gives a greater appreciation for {{Ponyo}} (a film that brought Hayao [[OneLastJob out of retirement]]) when you realize it is meant as one long apology to his son, the father personally [[DefiedTrope defying]] DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou.

Sometimes [[FunnyAneurysmMoment information about a real-life event that ties into a medium is revealed that undermines one's appreciation for said medium]]. Other times, [[ReverseFunnyAneurysm that same info can make you enjoy the medium even more]]. Then there's Cue Irony, real life facts and/or events about a show that make you really appreciate what those involved went through to make the medium.

* In the same vein, one has to respect actor Creator/MattHill for his work as ''GundamSEED'''s Kira Yamato; he actually had the show's vocal director kick him in the groin in order to ensure that his crying sounded authentic (and considering fans mock his counterpart Creator/SoichiroHoshi for sounding like "a dying horse" when Kira cries in the original Japanese...).
** Not to mention the fact that both Hill and Creator/SamuelVincent, who played Kira's best friend and partner Athrun Zala, have said at anime cons that they weren't happy with how ''GundamSEEDDestiny'' turned out.

* In the original film ''Film/TheManchurianCandidate'', Frank Sinatra throws a karate chop during a fight scene, breaking the little finger on his hand. It never healed properly.
* In the early ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' movies, the monster suit weighed hundreds of pounds and was intensely hot, especially under studio lights. Stuntman/actor Haruo Nakajima lost tens of pounds in sweat, and would routinely faint. It could have killed a lesser man. Later suits were lighter, but increased pyrotechnics brought other risks, such as in ''Film/TerrorOfMechagodzilla,'' where a nearby explosion set the suit's back-spikes on fire. The shot is in the movie, and even ''through the suit'' the stuntman is visibly panicking.
