Lakeith Stanfield Had A Hard Time Filming ‘The Harder They Fall’: I Would Drink Every Night’

Lakeith Stanfield posted to Instagram sharing that he was in a bad space mentally while filming “The Harder They Fall.”

“The [worst] part of filming this movie was that i was in a pretty bad space mentally. I couldn’t see what life had in store to teach me about myself that i needed to know,” he wrote. 

He said his horse got him through.

“One day “magnolia” (that wasn’t the horses name but i refused to not call him that in my head) bucked me off, and in that moment i heard him loud and clearly. BE STRONG OR GET OFF. I took control of the reigns and eventually we bonded so much so that it was emotional for me to leave the farm once i wrapped. Inlove how they don’t judge you. I love how they are always reliable and unconditional. Now all i had to do was learn to take control of my life in the same way. What better team to create such a profound memory with in J and the talented cast. There is a sadness in me if you look closely into the eyes of Cherokee. Everyday on set i was experiencing crippling anxiety and suffering silently inside. I would drink every night after work and try to laugh off my pain.”
