Movie star Paul Giamatti has found a new way of disciplining unruly horses on film sets - punch them in the jaw.
The Sideways star was tired of having to reshoot scenes in his new medieval epic Ironclad because his steed would not stand still - so he decided to let the beast know who was playing the king.
The actor, who plays King John in the film, explains, "The horse in this was a real bitch... It kept walking backwards just to kind of mess with me... so I punched the horse... I clipped him in the jaw."
And the brute force worked on the animal: "After that, that little crapper was on point."
I have a new hero, take a hike Matt Damon. Paul Giamatti you are the man! Not only is he a great actor he punches horses in the face. I assume he probably punched it in the face and laughed at him too. If I were a horse and Paul Giamatti punched me in the face, I'd probably take it and behave myself too.
On a side note, sorry for missing yesterday... I'm an accountant and it's busy season.
