He smokes, spits, and throws away the cigarettes anywhere he wants. He also treats his manager like his personal servant. He says, 'Bring me cigarettes, bring me water' and treats them really poorly, even in front of the director. He's not a decent human being, how he appears on the screen is 100% fake"
