Actors frequently have to alter their bodies for movies. Gain weight, lose weight, grow a beard, wear padded prosthetics like Angelina Jolie was forced to in Tomb Raider—acting is definitely a physical medium. Not to mention all the dengerous stuff you have to do on set. Sure, there are stunt doubles and so forth for the most dangerous stuff, but that doesn't mean accidents don't happen. Jon Stewart famously cut his hand open during a margarita bit, and that's a talk show. Actors, for as rich and coddled as they are, can be pretty physically vulnerable.

So we took the liberty of compiling some of most baffling injuries, and listen—we're just going to level with you. Some of these are gruesome. Read on an empty stomach. Who are we kidding? You're reading on the toilet, anyway. Perfect place for you to be on some of these entries. Entries like:
