Budapest Goes Viral

When celebrities film in Budapest, they keep postin' it on their social media. And sometimes it goes viral!

WILL SMITH CLIMBS THE BRIDGE

Will Smith posted several Budapest-set posts on his social media during his stay while filming Gemini Man, but it was the one he posted as a farewell present that really became memorable. Smith climbed the Hungarian capital’s oldest bridge, the Chain Bridge, and danced on top of it. The dangerous stunt was allegedly made without any permits - but it got 3.7 million views on Will’s Instagram page!

 

JAMIE FOXX PARTIES HARD

While filming Robin Hood, Jamie Foxx was active both on social media and out on the town! According to several videos and posts, the Oscar-winner made the most of it during his stay in Budapest! His adventures included singing Sinatra’s My Way at a restaurant, going to a morning radio show or spontaneously DJ-ing at a party! Not to mention the photo evidence of him working out in the Hungarian soccer team’s jersey!

RUBY ROSE CARES

The actress Ruby Rose was filming the action film SAS: Red Notice when she was admitted to hospital, where she was not happy with certain conditions. But her frightened Instagram stories quickly turned into proactive ones, and she spent quite a lot of money buying supplements and toys for the kids at Pál Heim Children’s Hospital!

SCHWARZENEGGER IS EVERYWHERE

While filming the new Terminator movie, Arnold Schwarzenegger was all over town! Besides praising the Hungarian crew of Terminator in a “Behind the Scenes” video made by HNFF, he frequently posted during his bike rides or walks at random spots in Budapest. But the most memorable was probably when he visited Flex Gym and saw a picture of Will Smith taking a picture with a Terminator statue. Needless to say, Arnold posed with it and posted with the caption saying “Thanks to Will Smith for the training inspiration here in Budapest.” Classic Arnold!

Claire Danes filmed Homeland in Budapest, but she also had time to be a tourist. According to her Instagram, she visited many of the famous sites in the city and did not hesitate to post several pics from her trip.

TIMOTHÉE CHALAMET IS M.I.A.

Sadly for his young fans, Call Me By Your Name star Timothée Chalamet was mostly unseen during his stay in Hungary while filming The King, as the whole shoot took place in the countryside. He was rather inactive on his social media, but fans will be able to see much more of him when the young star comes back to film Dune!
