15 movie stunt fails that almost made these celebs quit acting for good – Jackie Chan almost died on set (With Pics)

Movie stunt fails: The life of an actor is something that many of us crave, and when you think about it, why wouldn’t we? Actors make a ton of money, they are adored by millions of people all over the world, and to top it all off they don’t really even have to work for a living. All they really do is just hang out on set and get in front of the camera and act every once in a while. And seriously, how hard is that to do? Well usually, not that hard at all, but every once in a while, actors do things on set that they regret, sometimes because they almost cost them their lives. Yes, sometimes actors on television and movies almost die when they are performing and doing stunts, and when you think about it, that really isn’t worth being a big star now is it? It doesn’t really matter a whole lot how famous you are if you end up dying on set now, does it? Talk about something that people might regret. I would imagine a lot of these famous actors thought twice before doing something dangerous on camera again.


Here are 15 stars that did stunts they regret, but not as much as they could have. Some of them almost died!

15 Mathew Fox Had Prop Problems

You wouldn’t think that you would have to worry about being stabbed by a fake knife when you are the star of a television show, but tell that to Mathew Fox who was one of the many stars of Lost. He was doing a scene where he was stabbed with what was supposed to be a collapsible knife, but the problem with that was the knife wasn’t all that collapsible and it put Fox in a lot of danger.

Thankfully for him, he was wearing a protective vest that made sure he didn’t get any real serious injury.

Otherwise, Fox could have been in a lot of trouble. It seems like this is the kind of thing that stunt coordinators should make sure is safe before someone gets “stabbed.” Am I right?

14 Gilligan Was Almost Attacked By A Lion

Is there anyone that doesn’t remember Gilligan? Even those of you who are kind of young probably remember the show Gilligan’s Island in which Gilligan was always getting into some kind of trouble.

One time, Gilligan, who was played by the actor Bob Denver, almost was attacked by a lion on set, but before the lion could get to him, its trainer tackled it in mid-air.

This is obviously a good thing because if you ever looked at Gilligan’s physique, there is no doubt he would have been able to take on a lion and survive. That dude was really skinny, and you know being killed by a lion probably wouldn’t have done a lot for the ratings of the show down the line.
