during a recent episode the drew barrymore showThe 53-year-old actor talked about how he “almost killed”; Swank on the set of the film.
It seems that Butler’s character was required to dance shirtless, in only a pair of suspenders.
“I literally shot that scene for a day and a half and I had to dance like an idiot in suspenders,” Butler recalled. “At one point, the clip, which was an alligator clip, got caught in the television as I was crawling toward her and she’s right in front of me and she’s laughing hysterically.”
The clip was “so dangerous” that the camera crew prepared plastic covers as protection.
“I had to ping it, and it would go past my face. And this time I’m crawling toward the bed. It gets stuck,” he said. “It releases, flies over my head, into his head. Kills, chops off his head. I cut it off.
Swank was taken to the hospital.
“Imagine a studio, and in three seconds, everybody’s gone, and I’m just sitting in my boxer shorts and my shoes and a pair of socks and I just started crying,” he said. “I just scared Hilary Swank!” I almost gouged his eye out and I just fooled myself for two days and this is what I have to show for it. She’s going to the hospital.”
Swank has forgiven him.
