Kids, what is the ONE thing you would be sure to find on any AbFab set? Yes, you are correct. Drinking. But apparently, Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley were asked to STOP drinking on the set of Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie, after their partying got “out of hand”.
Yass, ladies!! Producers were forced to ask the stars and crew to stop consuming buckets of booze during filming. A source told The Mirror:
“Cast and crew were acting like Patsy and Edina, there was lots and lots of partying.
It was getting so out of hand producers had to remind everyone that while they didn’t mind them drinking after the cameras stopped rolling, during filming was a big no-no.”
A film rep “declined to comment”. Eddy reportedly said,
“Sweetie! Darling! SWEETIEDARLING!! Shall we have some more champers and some nimbley bits?!”
I made that last part up but you can be PRETTY sure that it happened just like that.
