You may think actors live a life full of glitz and glamour, but when it comes time to hone in on their craft and get into character, they put their heart and soul into their roles. Many times, these actors become so passionate while filming a scene that accidents occur, and the results aren’t pretty. These 10 on-screen injuries happened during crucial points of many popular films, and we all get to witness these actors get badly hurt all in the name of great cinema.
1. Margaret Hamilton in ‘The Wizard Of Oz’
In the scene where Margaret Hamilton, who played the Wicked Witch of the West, goes up into a puff of smoke, a trap door malfunctioned, causing Hamilton to suffer from second-degree burns on her face and hand while filming the classic film The Wizard of Oz. After recuperating at home for six weeks, Hamilton returned to set once her face had healed, but the nerves in her hand were “still exposed.” This made it difficult for the makeup artists to cover her body in the witch’s signature green paint, so Hamilton had to settle on wearing green gloves instead. You can see the actress’s injury starting at the 4:35 mark.
2. Jake Gyllenhaal in ‘Nightcrawler’
Jake Gyllenhaal put on an amazing performance in the 2015 thriller film Nightcrawler. The Academy Award-winning film includes a scene where his character breaks a bathroom mirror in a fit of rage. But Gyllenhaal punched the mirror a little too hard, causing the glass to shatter, and leaving him with cuts on his hand while the cameras kept rolling.
