In the Netflix family-friendly horror movie We Have a Ghost, in which he co-stars with Coolidge, the Actor said that the Jennifer Coolidge once chastised him on set for not completely committing to a scene in which his ghostly character, Ernest, chokes her character with his phantom mouth hand.
“We have this amazing moment where there’s a CGI thing that shoots out of my face and it’s a hand and it strangles her,” he said. “So I did it with my hand [during filming] and she was like, really pissed. Jennifer Coolidge stopped the take and was like, ‘David! You’ve gotta really strangle me! You gotta strangle me!'”
David simply couldn’t do it.
“I was like, ‘I’m not gonna murder America’s sweetheart!'” He explained.
“She was like, ‘Come on!'”
Harbour said that he was in awe of Coolidge in real life. “She is as amazing as you think she would be,” he said. “It’s just what you see on a talk show or at an awards show – it just is that, and it’s not that way with some of us.”
