A fight scene from upcoming Brad Pitt flick “Bullet Train” left co-star Aaron Taylor-Johnson passed out on set, ultimately resulting in his hospitalization.
After implementing a “crazy mad Keto diet” in an effort to get “scrawny and lean” for the film, the actor fainted due to “low blood sugar levels” shortly after sustaining a hand injury.
“We were in a fight sequence and I get drop-kicked across the room. And the one sharp bit of the corner where there wasn’t any padding took a chunk out of my hand. I literally went wham, passed out,” Taylor-Johnson, 32, told Variety of the incident.
“Then I came back and was like ‘Should we go again?’ and they were like ‘No, no, no. You gotta go get stitches at the hospital.’ So then I spent the night in the hospital,” he added.
Taylor-Johnson, who has previously starred in action movies like “Kick-Ass” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” knew that working with director David Leitch, a stunt professional himself, would likely involve sustaining a few bumps and bruises.
“When you sign up for a David Leitch movie you know you gotta get a couple battle scars, some war wounds.”
The actor recently celebrated his 10th anniversary with wife Sam Taylor-Johnson, 55, as the pair renewed their vows last month.
“We … confessed our love in front of our nearest and dearest friends and family it was a celebration of love and joy!” the actor told his Instagram followers in June.
“A decade of marriage,” he went on. “It was a magical unforgettable day and the sun did not stop shining on us both.. we are blessed beyond belief. ❤️ Sammy you are my love, my life, my soulmate, my wife, my world! ❤️.”
