Accident-prone celebrities pictured

Accidents can happen, and even the world’s most famous celebrities aren’t immune to the odd fall or tumble. In fact, for some the occasional calamity puts a whole new meaning on getting a break.

Daniel Craig seems to have gotten so used to getting injured that he hardly even pays it attention anymore. The James Bond star conducted an entire Variety ‘Actors on Actors‘ interview with Javier Bardem without noticing he was bleeding from his forehead. Bardem finally asked Craig about what happened and he wondered aloud if he had a bit of his sandwich on his head. He went to take a look in the mirror and said, “You’re right! I’ve cut my head.” 

Then it dawned on him. Craig explained that he’d set up the ring light for the interview but “it just fell on my head just before we started,” and then he and Bardem burst out in laughter. “This is 17 years playing Bond!” Craig said as he continued to crack up. “Can you see how accident prone I am? No wonder I get f—ing injured every time I do a movie.”

After his laughter subsided he joked, “If I don’t get injured when I’m filming, I’m not doing it properly.”
