Brand sniffed drinks for Arthur
Brand has battled drug and alcohol addiction in the past and recalled his wild ways for the role by inhaling the smell of alcohol while on set, according to the film's director Jason Winer.
He tells Empire magazine, "He sniffs alcohol to give himself a sense memory of what those days were like."
And Winer insists there was never any danger of Brand relapsing while filming.
He adds, "Russell's been sober for years so we're not worried."
