Michael was shooting with the late Heath Ledger when the horse accidentally clambered over his foot, leaving him in terrible pain. The actor said that he couldn"t even react or shout, as he did not intend to mess up the shot.
"Just as the director went, 'Action', a horse dug his hoof into my foot. It was the most painful thing I've ever felt. All I wanted to do was scream, but I couldn't mess up the shoot - every second of film cost thousands. When the director said ,'Cut', I had to be carried off set," the Daily express quoted him as saying.
