    The moment when Peter drops the orb was not scripted. The clumsy actor Chris Pratt accidentally dropped it but quickly picked the orb up. Since Chris didn't break character and the scene looked good it stayed in the film.

    The scene where Mrs. Doubtfire had to cover her face with icing didn't go as planned. When the icing started dripping down the actor's face because the heat from set lights made it melt, Robbie Williams had to improvise. At the moment when the icing dripped into Mrs. Sellner’s tea, he decided to say, “There you go, you’ve got your cream and your sugar now.”

    R. Lee Ermey, who played Gny. Sgt. Hartman, was a real-life Parris Island Marine drill instructor during the war. At first, he was hired as a technical adviser but later was given a part in the film and improvised all training scenes himself.

    Do you remember one of the funniest scenes in the movie, when Roman said "Hey Mia, You better hide your baby oil" and Hobbs responded with "You better hide that big ass forehead"? Well, actor Dwayne Johnson came up with this comeback on the spot because in the script his character wasn't supposed to respond at all.

    The scene where Tom Hanks picks up the gurney himself and throws it into the ambulance wasn't scripted, he thought of doing it that on the spot.

    The famous scene where Nick the Greek breaks the coffee table with a juice glass wasn't scripted. In fact, it was an accident and the shocked look on the actor’s face is genuine.

    Leonardo DiCaprio was so dedicated to his role in The Revenant that instead of eating fake meat, he ate an actual raw bison liver, despite being a vegetarian. No surprise that he was awarded an Oscar for this role.

    While it's hard to imagine Jim Gordon's promotion scene without the Joker clapping sarcastically, this scene was never in the script. It is a work of Heath Ledger’s excellent improvisation.

    While the safest choice for a scene like that is to use special effects and make-up, Steve Carell thought that it would be much better if the waxing was real. The reaction the character is having is completely genuine. Carell said that his experience was so horrible that he promised to never do that for a movie ever again.

    The scene where Thor hangs his hammer on a coat rack was so good that everyone probably thought it was scripted, however, it was not. Chris Hemsworth was just trying to be funny but his improvisation was so good, the scene was put into the final cut.
