Christopher Nolan Denies That He Bans Chairs from Movie Sets

After Anne Hathaway alleged that Christopher Nolan does not allow chairs on his movie sets, the director had to quickly chime in.

During Variety‘s Actors on Actors installment, Anne alleged that Christopher enforces the ban because “if you have chairs, people will sit, and if they’re sitting, they’re not working.”

“For the record, the only things banned from [Christopher Nolan’s] sets are cell phones (not always successfully) and smoking (very successfully),” Christopher’s spokesperson responded to IndieWire.

“The chairs Anne was referring to are the director’s chairs clustered around the video monitor, allocated on the basis of hierarchy not physical need,” they explained. “Chris chooses not to use his but has never banned chairs from the set.”

Well, that solves that we guess?! Personally, we love a chair.
