We often assume that Hollywood celebrities have very easy and smooth lives. Not many of us know about the pain or difficulties they put up with. Nor do we know much about the injuries they would have had while shooting for our favorite movies.
Some of the celebrities haven't just had a rough life before earning the stardom, but continue to have a hard time while filming for movies, shows and songs even after becoming famous. These injuries have taken some of them to the ER!
Not always the actors and actresses use a stunt double. We recently told you how Jennifer Lawrence had a serious ear infection while performing the water stunts for the movie 'Hunger Games'. And Emma Stone had both her arms broken once.
If these romantic or drama movie actors hurt themselves to such an extent on sets, ever wondered how hard it would be for the action movie stars? For instance, actor Jackie Chan, who has throughout his film career worked on action movies!
Chan has suffered from every possible injury while shooting for his movies. During the filming of 'Police Story', the actor suffered a second degree burn, back injury and dislocated pelvis! All this happened while sliding down four stories on a metal pole.
The injuries on set doesn't spare anyone. It isn't just the movie actors who end up with broken back or dislocated jaw. Musicians have experienced such accidents while filming their music videos, too. There have been instances when the entire set has burned down.
Mariah Carey had to be rushed to the New York hospital late in the night as she dislocated her shoulders. This was while she was shooting for her music video, the remix of 'Beautiful', which was directed by her husband.
