Just because a movie is a romance doesn’t mean it was all love on set, as Gerard Butler has now detailed that he “almost killed” co-star Hilary Swank in an on-set freak accident that landed her in the hospital.
On an episode of The Drew Barrymore Show, Gerard Butler recalled the event in which he bloodied his on-screen wife, played by Hilary Swank. “You remember the scene where I am dancing and I [am wearing] suspenders?” I shot that scene for a day and a half, and I had to dance like an idiot in the suspenders…At one point, the clip, which was a crocodile clip, got stuck in the television as I’m crawling towards her, and she’s right in front of me, laughing hysterically.” Goofy enough until Butler revealed what came next. “I crawl towards the bed, it gets trapped, it releases, flies above my head, hits me in the head and slashes my head.”

Cobra Kai, where Swank could reprise her role as Julie Pierce from The Next Karate Kid.Gerard Butler, meanwhile, has stepped away from romances as of late-perhaps afraid he’ll send another co-star to the hospital like did Hilary Swank-instead churning out action movies like Last Seen Alive and
