By

We’ve already broken the first rule of Fight Club, which is … you don’t talk about Fight Club. On the surface, the film depicts a depressed man, known only as The Narrator (Edward Norton), who meets a soap salesman named Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt). The two form an underground boxing club and get mixed up in a relationship with the chain-smoking and mentally unstable Marla Singer (Helena Bonham Carter). 

Throughout the cult classic '90s film, Fight Club explores the ideas of toxic masculinity, consumer culture, and mental illness. Weaved into an intricate web of of controversial plot points and infamous lines, the film continues to be a fan-favorite among audiences. Today, we're celebrating the 20th anniversary of the 1999 film Fight Club with a few fun facts from the movie that even die-hard fans may not know.

In one of the funniest scenes of the film, both Tyler (Pitt) and The Narrator (Norton) hit golf balls while under the influence. However, the two actors weren't just pretending to be heavily intoxicated or sipping sweet tea. Numerous reports state that the stars were instructed by the director to have a few drinks before shooting the scene. The actors were actually laughing as they hit golf balls into the catering truck on set.
