It's not an easy job: what injuries do actors get during filmingPictolic
Many people think that being an actor is easy and simple, and Hollywood stars do not get their huge fees quite deservedly. In fact, this profession is fraught with many surprises, including unpleasant ones. It turns out that acting can even be traumatic!
Read about bruises, burns, dislocations and fractures received by celebrities during filming in our material.
On the set of the cult thriller "Seven", Brad Pitt, unwittingly, improvised at the cost of his own health. The fact is that during the production of the scene with the pursuit of the "criminal", the actor fell heavily and injured his hand on the window glass. As a result, the Hollywood handsome man tore a tendon and had to shoot the following scenes with a bandaged hand.
But the writers found a way out of the situation and decided that Pitt's character Detective Mills would also get injured.
Halle Berry is often called "the most traumatized actress in Hollywood" and this is not for nothing. The Bond girl had several injuries that she received on the set at once – a dislocation, a bruise and even a fracture. She earned the first one on the set of the film "Gothic" – her partner Robert Downey Jr. did not calculate the strength, twisting her arm during a fight.
On the set of "Catwoman" Halle Berry managed to get a head injury, and during the filming of the fantasy drama "Cloud Atlas" she completely broke her leg.
Robert Downey Jr.
Robert Downey Jr. can not only injure, but also be injured. During the filming of "Iron Man", the actor insisted on performing the trick independently, as a result of which he severely injured his ankle. The shooting of the superhero tape had to be stopped for a day, and it took the team a pretty penny.
That is why directors most often insist that professional stuntmen perform all the tricks for the artists. After all, much more shocking accidents can occur during filming…
Many people know that Jennifer Lawrence has a slightly impaired coordination. At least, this explains her frequent falls on red carpets.
According to the actress, a neurological deviation appeared in her after an ear injury received on the set of the film "The Hunger Games". The girl hit herself with a bow on the run, and then immediately dived into the water. When Lawrence got out of the water, she realized that she was deaf in one ear… Fortunately, her hearing has returned, but the consequences of the injury are still making themselves felt.
If you have watched the "Illusion of Deception", then you remember the terrible trick with piranhas, during which a girl named Henley is handcuffed and chained to the bottom of a container filled with water. According to the plot, the magician manages to free herself from the shackles just a few seconds before the piranhas are launched into the water.
But, it turns out, in real life, the actress Isla Fisher, who plays the role of Henley, almost drowned. During the filming of the scene, the lock on the chain really jammed, and the team members did not immediately realize that she was really panicking. As a result, Fisher spent almost 3 minutes underwater.
After filming the film "300 Spartans", where Gerard Butler had to perform most of the tricks on his own, he began to suffer from severe back pain. As a result, the actor began to take painkillers and soon "got hooked" on them seriously.
To get rid of addiction, Butler even had to turn to a narcologist. He finally managed to say goodbye to the drugs only six years later.
The" veteran " of Hollywood, 71-year-old actor Harrison Ford injured his ankle on the set of the movie "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". This happened as a result of an unsuccessful fall in the interiors of the spacecraft.
The damage was so severe that Harrison could not even move independently. He was picked up by a medical helicopter directly from the set and taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. Fortunately, Ford soon recovered.
During the filming of the movie "Moulin Rouge", the fragile Nicole Kidman earned two rib fractures at once, and the same one! The first fracture occurred when Nicole's partner on stage, actor Evan McGregor, did not hold her during the dance, and she stumbled and fell down the steps.
After a while, the actress herself became the culprit of her injury. She asked the dresser to tighten the corset more tightly, and the bone that had not yet completely fused could not withstand the pressure. Because of these two cases, Nicole had to spend a significant part of her time on the playground in a wheelchair. It was in it that close-ups were shot with the actress.
Filming in the film "Siriana" turned into a rather dangerous trauma for George Clooney. First, the actor unsuccessfully fell on a chair, as a result of which he severely injured his back. All the newspapers at that time trumpeted that a celebrity could remain disabled. Fortunately, it worked out.
Secondly, Clooney injured his head while shooting torture scenes. For a long time, the actor felt "as if after a stroke" and had to take medications. It should also be noted that for filming in "Sirian", the Hollywood handsome man had to gain 10 kg. Who else from the actors was forced to lose weight or get fat, read in our other article.
It would seem that well, what can be traumatic in the film " P.S. I love you"? But the actress Hilary Swank managed to get injured on the set from ... an ordinary clasp. During the undressing scene, she broke away from her suspenders Gerard Butler and hit the celebrity right in the forehead.
To continue working, she had to put several stitches on the wound.
In the movie "Snow White and the Huntsman", the heroine Charlize Theron is evil Queen Rowenna had to shout a lot. So much so that the actress even tore her abdominal muscles during the filming of one of the scenes. The poor thing couldn't move for several hours, so they decided to suspend work on the tape.
Charlize herself later admitted that she did not even suspect that something like this was possible.
Men, get ready! We are telling you about the most serious, in our opinion, injury on the site. And it happened to actor Channing Tatum during the filming of the film "Eagle of the Ninth Legion". In order not to get frostbite, diving into cold water, the actor periodically doused himself with warm water, which was served to him by an assistant. But one day he forgot to dilute the boiling water and generously doused Tatum with it.
The worst thing is that the hot water managed to leak under the armor, and while the poor guy was taking them off, it damaged the most tender place of his body. Yes, yes, we are talking about a member. Later, the actor said that the skin even peeled off his burned penis! And now tell me that it's easy to work as an actor.
