Dwayne Johnson Shows Off Disgusting Finger Injury on Film Set -- But Is It Real?
By Philiana Ng
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.
“Alright, just stepped off set. My director Rawson Thurber just ran up to me – we had a little accident. He said, ‘Are you bleeding?’ I said, ‘Bleed?’” Johnson said in the Instagram video, before the camera panned down to reveal his ring finger completely disfigured.
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.
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.”
