Ryan Reynolds was so desperate to cure his insomnia while filming new movie BURIED, he convinced his family to try smuggling sleep aides to him on the set of the shoot in Spain.
Reynolds stars as a trucker who is kidnapped in Iraq and buried alive in the film, but he didn't predict shooting long scenes locked in a coffin would take such a mental toll.
And he was desperate for a solution after discovering many over-the-counter sleep aides in the U.S. are illegal in Spain.
He explains, "I'd go home and I'd pace until sun up, like a vampire, and then climb into a coffin (to film)... I was losing my mind, I hadn't slept in days, weeks."
But the actor never got the relief he desperately needed - because Spanish immigration officials blocked the drugs from getting into the country.
He adds: "In Spain, you can't get over-the-counter sleep aides. Melatonin is a herbal one that I like to use because it's not really harmful. You can't get it there, it's basically like crack.
"I had my family ship it over from America, and it never got to me each time. I tried six times to get it there."
