Sally Field cannot believe that she was arrested while making dramatic TV movie Sybil in New York City in 1976. The actress, who is well-known for her craft, was apparently so believable that passers-by were convinced she mas mentally unstable.
Apparently, somebody called the cops over a woman who looked deranged. The Oscar winner stayed in character even when they were on breaks. She was playing the role of a woman with multiple personality disorder.
The cops responded and the mortified Sally Field was taken into custody for evaluation.
She told U.S. TV host Jimmy Fallon: "I don't leave character. I am a method actor, but I hide it because people will think you're weird if you're in a corner sort of mumbling to yourself.
"I did this thing... called Sybil and we shot a lot of it on the streets of New York... And we were sort of between shots... and someone called to have this very strange and obviously very disturbed woman arrested - and it was me.
"I was walking around the streets and someone reported me to the police... (Someone) had to come get me (and bail me out)."
