Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is giving Jimmy Fallon a run for his money – at least when it comes to finger injuries, except there was more to it than meets the eye.
The 43-year-old actor posted a video to social media, sharing with his fans (and the world), an accident that had happened on the set of Central Intelligence on Tuesday.
Johnson let out a chuckle before dropping the best response to Thurber’s question.
“I ain’t got time to bleed!” he said with a laugh.
But not to worry guys, Johnson isn’t too broken up over it. “Alright, let’s pop this son of a b**** back in!” Johnson said with a smile.
Turns out, Johnson didn't actually
suffer the on-set mishap. A rep for New Line, the studio behind Central Intelligence
, told Variety
that the hand wasn't actually his -- it was a prosthetic
hand that was seemingly broken.
Oh The Rock, you nearly had us fooled!
Fallon explained that he almost had to have his finger amputated due to the severity of his injury, which occurred June 26 when he caught his ring on a desk countertop and nearly tore off his finger. It required a six-hour surgery and he said he stayed in the ICU for 10 days.
“Apparently, the odds aren’t great and usually they just cut your finger off,” Fallon said. “I won’t get feeling back for eight weeks.”
