When we think Hollywood and movies, we think glamour and red carpet, but more often than not, the process of making the movie itself is overlooked. In other words, the hard and sometimes very dangerous work – for all parties involved – isn’t taken into consideration. But the reality is, actors and actresses do risk injury, and unfortunately, there are times when they do occur. In the last few decades, there were a number of real injuries that made it into the final cut. Here are a couple of memorable mentions that may surprise you.
Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino’s 2012 Western Django
Leonardo DiCaprio had one of the leading roles in Quentin Tarantino’s 2012 Western Django. DiCaprio played a fierce slave owner, and had a number of intense scenes in the movie. However, one that caught the greatest attention was a dinner scene during which the actor’s hand got injured and started bleeding. In a heated discussion which the scene required, “DiCaprio slams his fist onto a table—and hits a glass in the process. But he’s such a pro that he continued his long monologue while picking pieces of bloody glass from his skin.” reported the Looper. The injury was tended to moments after the scene was shot, and we can see bandaged hand as the movie continues. According to reports, “ Leonardo DiCaprio’s brave attitude was loved by Quentin Tarantino. He admired Leo’s zeal and used this take in the film.”
An Ironic Coincidence for Brad Pitt on the Set of Troy
Troy was one of the most memorable movies in 2004, but for the lead actor of the film, Brad Pitt, it was memorable for surprising reasons. Just like his character that he was playing – Achilles, his tendon got injured. The actor was training for months prior to filming to get into his character, who was described as Greece’s greatest warrior and leader. “The incident led to a delay in filming for several weeks but the actor recovered soon to resume production.” reports the Republic World. When major or minor injuries occur at work, seeking legal help is advised. According to experts at Janet, Janet and Suggs, personal injury lawyers can “provide legal advice and representation to clients who have sustained physical injuries”. Needless to say, with professional help, the legal side of the situation can be handled much easier and faster.
Despite taking all safety measures imaginable, accidents still happen that result in injuries. In the movie industry, some make it into the final cut, others don’t, but at the end of the day, what matters the most is that the injured individuals can recover and resume as time goes on.
