Funny Celebrity Injury Stories

I’m starting to think maybe they’re *not* just like us.

Last week, people couldn’t stop talking about Zendaya and Demi Lovato because of the truly wild and kind of silly way they each ended up in the hospital.

Zendaya had a bit of a cooking mishapproviding to us all that ordering Postmates is always the safest option.

And Demi explained how Sometimes crystals that are meant to heal, can actually hurt instead. Self-care and spirituality is not for the faint of heart.

But these are not the first two celebrities to hurt themselves and land up in the hospital for reasons that, let’s be honest, are a little weird and kind of make you giggle. So here are 13 other celebs who did something similar, or somehow even weirder.

Haven’t we all been here? You, your daughter, and a goat are frolicking around in Spain and then BAM! You trip over a rock and your foot is broken. It’s a tale as old as time, really! It could happen to anyone at any time. So maybe think twice next time you’re tempted to run after a be-horned creature.

Adam Sandler got a black eye after his phone flew through the air and attacked his face.

Sandler’s story is really a cautionary tale about making your bed too well. He said on an appearance on Good Morning America: “Somebody tucked in the sheets too much and I had my phone in the middle of the bed. I kicked my feet up to untuck it, the phone went flying, hit me in the head.” Proving yet again how bad our phones are for our health. Careful out there, y’all!


ABC

Who among us can say we haven’t had one mimosa too many and then tried to prepare some cabbage for dinner? (Ok, I actually can’t relate to the cabbage part of this, but on board for the mimosas.) Well, unfortunately, Gal not only sliced ​​off the tip of her finger, but her husband threw her finger-chunk (sorry, lol) DOWN THE GARBAGE DISPOSAL!! Any hopes of reattaching were gone, baby, gone.

Zac Efron had to get his jaw wired shut after slipping on a puddle.

Puddles are a tricky business. How deep are they? How long? How wide? Where did the puddle come from? Did it rain? I don’t remember it raining. And while you’re wondering all of these things to yourself, well damnit, you’ve slipped and broken your jaw! But if you’re lucky like Zac, you’ll come away with a little chin scar that somehow makes you even hotter????

Ireland Baldwin got an intense bloody nose after babysitting for under an hour.

I think we can all agree that children are destructive monsters who are hellbent on hurting themselves and everyone around them. Just me? Ok. Well, I think Ireland would back me up here, after she “…babysat two 7-year-old boys for 45 minutes,” and ended up with a VERY BLOODY NOSE. Gonna have to miss me with that!

Martha Stewart got out of her car and stepped straight into a hole, rupturing her Achilles tendon.

Sometimes you get lost in a bit of fantasy and pretend you’re Michelle Kwan going for the gold at the 1998 Olympics. At least I’m pretty sure that’s what happened with Lana. She said at the time, “When you see my second video for this album, don’t think that the fact I’m wearing a cast is symbolic for anything other than thinking I was still a pro figure skater.” Or maybe the symbolic meaning is that there’s no symbolic meaning. Makes you think.

Catherine Zeta-Jones fractured her foot while decorating for Christmas.

Rose McGowan broke her arm after reading election results while standing on the stairs.

Halsey broke their ankle while loading the dishwasher.

I tripped over the open dishwasher door cause the kitchen floor was wet when I was loading the dishes and slammed my ankle bone into the metal and fractured it hahaha https://t.co/v5YMmsLRVv

@halsey/Twitter

Hm, is this why my roommate never loads the dishwasher? Did he know how potentially dangerous it could be? Maybe I’ve been too hard on him. I should send Halsey a thank you note for opening up a dialogue between us and helping me understand that sometimes cups need to remain in the sink for one’s own safety.

13.

Simon Cowell lost a tooth in a peanut brittle accident.

Warner Bros. Television

Ok, I’m kind of burying the lede here, because not only did Simon lose a tooth (no word on if the tooth fairy visited) he also broke his wrist after a biking incident AND tested positive for Covid all within the span of one week. That’s what we here at BuzzFeed call “A PRETTY BAD TIME.”
