Shooting a movie can be bittersweet for some actors, because they're left with nothing to remember the experience by but hours of footage and a script.
If they're lucky they might walk away with the costumes they wore in the movie, or some sort of prop, but studios generally don't allow anyone to hang on to anything from the production, A-list actor or not.
But sometimes actors feel they must have a souvenir from the set, because shooting the film meant so much to them they simply can't bear the thought of living without a memento.
The Harry Potter films mean the world to cast members Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, but the production had a strict "no props leave the set" policy in place, so prized souvenirs had to be snagged.
Daniel Radcliffe took two pairs of Harry Potter's glasses, which he says are "tiny now, but...very sweet", and Emma Watson went full klepto and stole Hermione's wand, Time-Turner and cloak.
Young actors aren't the only ones prone to snatching props from the set when they want a souvenir- veteran actor James Caan took home the iconic Royal typewriter after filming Misery, and Kathy Bates says she still has "that sledgehammer" sitting around her house somewhere...
