Dermot Mulroney has declined to cover up his scar throughout his 30 years in the entertainment industry, and has recently explained how he got it.
“It was a long time ago, so I’ve always had it. I was 3(1/2) and I was carrying a dish for our pet rabbits. And I tripped and it broke, and I fell on it. I definitely remember that day, even though I was 3 years old,” he said.
“I don’t think about it or see it, but it’s always been there. It certainly has its place on my face, right below my right nostril. That’s where it belongs.”
Mulroney is shooting his new thriller, Crisis, in Chicago, which was also the location for his most famous film, My Best Friend’s Wedding.
“One of the most memorable scenes for me is on that tour boat, where Julia [Roberts] and I go up and down the river under the bridges,” he says.
“Coming back here to shoot, I’ll go by a stairway to an L where I know we shot a scene, or by a nightclub where we filmed. I’m always happening upon these locations that I shot at 16, 17 years ago, and I remember them like it was yesterday.”
