Vera Farmiga does Ukrainian folk dancing when she is drunk
The `Safe House` actress - whose parents hail from the eastern European country - learnt the traditional dance when she was younger and her entire family like to hit the dancefloor when they have drunk too much alcohol.
She said: "I was a Ukrainianfolk dancer in my teens, and I toured the country in 1991, shortly before the break-up of the Soviet Union.
"Imagine a hybrid of Irish step dancing and Russian Cossack. The whole family still whips it up at weddings -largely due to inebriation. If the acting doesn`t work out, it`s definitely something I could fall back on."
However, Vera`s career has continued to do well since she gained an Oscar nomination in `Up in the Air` in 2009, and she admits she got on very well with her co-star George Clooney and would have loved to do a sequel.
In an interview with Stylist magazine, she said: "Who did I have the strongest chemistry with? Well, George, of course. I just wish we could have done a sequel.
"And Sam Rockwell in `Joshua` and Matt Damon in `The Departed` - he`s a good sparring partner.
