The film: Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull (2008)
The star: Shia LaBeouf
The injury: Between getting into car scrapes and risking his life working with Michael Bay, LaBeouf has suddenly become an injury-magnet.
“This was the first movie I got injured. I pulled rotator cuff on my hip, which was not fun, and that was with me for three or four months after. We were doing a sword fight in the jungle and I did something I wasn’t supposed to do and it was very wet and everything was moving and I hurt myself.
“I had to do Electronic Stimulation Therapy where you strap a box to your leg and shock your muscle to where you couldn’t feel it any more. Every three hours you have to go back and do it again.”
How could it have been avoided? Sweatout.com offers the awesome sounding (but frankly pants – geddit? – looking) LYCRA® Power™ Performance Compression Thigh, Groin, & Hip Support Shorts. For those special areas.
After all, not listening to George Lucas or Steven Spielberg and staying away from the stupid chase scene probably wasn’t an option. When the beards say jump, you ask how high.
