Can vampires get injured in the bum?
Robert Pattinson reports that he strained his rear muscles while trying to lift Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart for the first time.
Which got us thinking: how many silly celebs have been injured in the line of duty, and what could they have done to avoid it?
The film: Twilight (2008)
The star: Robert Pattinson
The injury: Sexy hair? Check. Good looks? Check? Vampire strength? Not so much check.
“I got injured on the first shot of my first day on Twilight. I lifted Kristen and ripped my arse cheek.
I had to get a bum massage for the cheek."
How could it have been avoided? While we hate to suggest he’s a big weakling for not being able to lift Stewart’s lightweight body with ease, we’re not sure that sexy vampire image would have survived him having to wear a medical truss for the scene.
So perhaps he should have warmed upa little better. According to Bill Hartman at Men’s Health, he should avoid stretching immediately before exertion. “Stretch twice a day, every day. Any less frequently and you won't maintain your gains in flexibility - which is why most flexibility plans don't work. Twice a day may seem like a lot, but each "session" will require as little as 4 minutes of your time.”
