0219_bridesmaids_launchWe will never be able to forget the iconic bathroom scene in "Bridesmaids."

In fact, the infamous (and disgusting!) scene in which Kristen Wiig, Rose Byrne, Maya Rudolph, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper all come down with food poisoning after eating at a Brazilian steakhouse, wasn't part of the original script at all.

Now, we're getting an inside look at what really went down on the set that day from the film's Oscar-nominated cinematographer, Robert Yeoman.

"They brought those pages in and said, 'This is what we’re going to do,' and I remember at the time being a little horrified by the whole thing and thinking, 'Oh my gosh, how are we going to do this?'" he told HuffPost Entertainment.

"It’s not my style of humor, really, and I just wasn’t sure how this was all going to be pulled off. But Paul [Feig] seemed to have a handle on it, so I said, 'Okay, Paul, you run with this one,'" Yeoman said of the two-camera shoot.

"We shot it and I know a lot of people have commented, 'Oh, that was so funny, that was so funny.' I find that I’m sometimes not the best barometer of what people enjoy. That’s not something that I personally was a big fan of, but a lot of people really love that scene," he added.

We happen to love that scene, but was it too much for you to handle? Sound off below!
