Two dozen characters in a movie celebrating the life of Bobby Kennedy, and Christian Slater gets stuck playing a racist.

He says he had to say so many awful things, he made his co-stars cringe. In one scene, Slater says Sharon Stone was “grossed out” by him and shuddered.

Slater says he doesn’t know why his co-stars come down on his character because their characters aren’t saints.

He says it was kind of creepy filming some scenes in the actual Ambassador Hotel as it was being torn down.

“Bobby” opens tomorrow.
