Wesley Snipes alienated everyone on new movie Blade Trinity, because he spent the entire shoot in-character.

Snipes, who reprises his role as vampire-slayer BLADE in the second action sequel, is a method actor and insisted on continuing on-screen relationships with co-stars when filming ends.

Castmember Ryan Reynolds recently complained Snipes was stand-offish and co-star Jessica Biel agrees.

She says, "It's weird to see him in the morning and not quite know what to say. I get a little response. Does he hate me? Is he p**sed at me? There's a bunch of questions that go through your head at first.

"So I think it was a little unnerving for me.

"I think for everybody who hadn't worked with him before it took a little while to get used to that type of process for somebody. You get used to it. You go about your day and you go about your work and your habits your own way. He didn't impose on me and I didn't impose on him either so he didn't necessarily make my experience negative to any extent.

"I respected him for what he had to go through."
