Trivia

McDormand nicknamed the van used in the film "Vanguard", which she decorated with her own personal items and slept in during the shoot. Eventually she stopped doing so because "it's much better for me to pretend to be exhausted than to actually be exhausted", she told The Hollywood Reporter. See more »
