8 Hollywood actors who got seriously hurt on set doing stunts!

Acting may look like a piece of cake, but it is not. It is far from it. They do have the perks of going to amazing and cool places to film and of course the badass costumes. A very glamorous lifestyle. What we don’t see is the hard work, the time and effort and the dedication they put into making the film a successful one. Some celebrities get so into the role that they prefer to do their own stunts.

Which is just what you think it is. Dangerous. Most of the actors don’t perform their stunts scripted for them, instead, they have look-alikes, who are professionals to do it for them. Even then it is extremely dangerous and life-threatening. It is no joke! This handful of stars decided to risk their health and their lives, to make the scenes of the movie as original as possible.

8 Hollywood actors who got seriously hurt on set doing stunts! 2

1. Sylvester Stallone

Movie: Rocky IV (1985)
Sylvester Stallone is known for his role as boxer Rocky Balboa. When Sylvester told his co-star Dolph Lundgren, playing as Ivan Drago to punch him for real in a scene for Rocky IV in 1985, little did he know how bad it would end. The scene where Rocky is fighting Ivan for killing his friend Apollo. Lundgren seems to have been more involved in the scene and might have taken the offer a little too seriously, resulting in Rocky’s or should we say Sylvester’s (because he really did get hurt) heart swelling to an abnormal size due to it hitting his sternum. He was in the ICU for more than a week, fortunately, he was able to come back to health and continued filming the movie.

2. Jackie Chan

Movie: Armour of God (1986)
Jackie Chan is known for his kick-ass karate stunts, mainly because he does all of it on his own, so it is no surprise he has hurt himself many times while filming his many movies. One of the biggest and life threatening accident occurred when Jackie Chan tried to jump from a wall to a tree. Unfortunately, he missed and fell head first into the rocks. The fall did much bigger damage than expected where his skull split and shoved into his brain. Ugh, we are cringing while just writing about it! Immediate medical attention was needed along with neurosurgery. There is still a cavity in his head that is stuffed with plastic, but that doesn’t stop him from doing more stunts.
