We can never know when we might find ourselves in a life-threatening situation. On top of that, we may not realize it at first, but as a celeb there are certain risks that come with the profession. Performing dangerous stunts while shooting, flying frequently, even an innocent vacation (or sex if youre Hugh Hefner) can suddenly turn into a living nightmare. Here are some of the horrific incidents that our A-listers have luckily survived to tell:

1. George Clooney


Clooney broke his back while filming Syriana. He was hospitalized for three weeks in which he could not move and suffered severe headaches. He said the pain felt like having a stroke and even made him contemplate suicide. Oh dear, our hearts just skipped a beat there.
