Kurt Russell (Poseidon, 2006)
How long did Kurt Russell hold his breath for this Poseidon Adventure remake? Long enough that he almost fell unconscious.
“There’s a scene where I’m underwater a long time, which means I had to entrust myself to someone to come in and give me air at exactly the right moment. That’s spooky stuff,” he told The Los Angeles Daily News.
“I wanted to see what the experience was like, but, psychologically, that’s hard to do . . . letting go and trusting that you won’t drown.”
He added: “The third time, when the guy swam out and put the regulator in my mouth, I don’t remember it. I was that close to the edge.”
