While Hill's performance as Donnie Azoff in the movie garnered him an Oscar nomination for Best Actor in a Supporting Role, it also landed him in the hospital. The actor got sick after snorting too much fake cocaine while filming the movie.

"I got bronchitis," he said, adding that because of the vitamin powder, "I never had more vitamin D in my entire life. I could have lifted a car over my fucking head!"
