Mike Myers said he was unaware that a bodyguard would be removed from the Love Guru set for making eye contact.
Mike Myers “he knows nothingabout a recent revelation that a crew member from Love Teacher it would have been fired because she had looked him straight in the eye. Vancouver DJ Jay Brody caused a stir on social media when he shared a video of Keanu Reeves helping move production equipment on the set of “John Wick: Chapter 4“.
“People who say Keanu shouldn’t be praised for helping the crew because it’s normal to do so have no idea what it’s like to work in the film world“Brody wrote on Twitter. “Mike Myers got me fired from the set of Love Guru because I made eye contact with him… I was his bodyguard.”
Brody later clarified that he was not Myers’ personal bodyguard on set, but that he worked for the film security unit on the set of the film: “They told me: ‘if you look him in the eye you will be fired’. The first day I was on set, we still didn’t know what Myers would look like in the costume. At one point I see a man come up with a long wig, fake beard, and I think, I think it’s Mike Myers.”
“I look down so as not to look at him because I don’t want to get fired. My job was to not let anyone into his trailer, so I look up, meet his gaze for a second, nod to let him know I’m available for him, and look away. Within the hour I get a call: I’ve been fired and have to leave the set because I broke the ruleBrody concluded. A rep for Mike Myers told Entertainment Weekly, “Mike knows nothing about it. He is not aware of anyone being hired or fired.”
