    "It Was Really Fun To Do An Action Movie, But It Can Be A Bit Dangerous At Times": Rebel Wilson Gave An Update After An On-Set Accident Required Her To Have Stitches

    "I got hit in the face with the butt of a gun. It was a complete accident and such a shock."

    Warning: Some images of blood.

    Rebel Wilson shared an update after she was injured on the set of her upcoming movie Bride Hard.

    Because the movie is independently produced, it has an agreement with SAG-AFTRA to keep shooting in Savannah, Georgia, amid the ongoing strikes. The action-comedy movie is reportedly about a “badass secret agent Sam (Wilson) who has been tasked with one of her hardest missions yet — being a maid of honor for her childhood best friend.”

    In a new video posted to her Instagram story Aug. 9, Rebel went into further detail about what happened. "Thank you for all your well-wishes. I've actually been healing, quite amazing. The stitches have dissolved out from my on-set accident last week," she began.

    "In the middle of the night shoot, my last scene of the movie — so I had done all these kick-arse fight sequences — I got hit in the face with the butt of a gun. It was a complete accident and such a shock," she continued.

    "Luckily, I'm healing very well, so I wanted to say thank you for everybody's well-wishes. I hopefully will be totally fine. It was really fun to do an action movie, but it can be a bit dangerous at times," she added.
