10 Times Actors Have Been Seriously Injured on Set

I get easily obsessed. Though I have not posted in a long time, I have not given up on my crazy, media mania, quirks. A recent example of this is that I have watched the same film every day this week. Yes, I am that level of media crazed. While viewing films over and over again, something that often crosses my mind is “they have to sometimes get hurt doing this crazy shit.” On a whim I looked up instances of actors getting hurt during filming.

  •      CeeLo Green has been arrested and charged with a felony for having Ecstasy and “sharing” it with a woman he was on a date with.

  • Recently when asked if he’d visited the Parthenon during his recent trip to Greece, Shaquille O’Neal replied: “I can’t really remember the names of the clubs that we went to.”

                 – I can’t even think of a snarky enough response to this. He’s obviously been hit in the head with several basketballs.

Did You Know
        – Jackie Chan has just revealed that his father was a  professional spy for communist China. 
     
  -Tim Allen was arrested in 1978 for possession of 1.4 pounds of cocaine and was sent to jail for 2 years.
