English actress Gemma Arterton has revealed how she accidentally broke one of the ribs of her Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters co-star Famke Janssen. The two women had fight scenes in the movie and Gemma was a little heavy-handed with Famke.
Arterton was talking to Digital Spy, when she explained, "I cracked Famke's ribs in a fight [scene] we did. She didn't tell me at the time, she was very good about it. Afterwards she said, 'You broke my rib!' Things like that happen."
Famke Janssen wasn't the only person to get injured on the set of Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, as Gemma admits that she took a few knocks herself. Gemma says that she relied heavily on the pain reliever Arnica, to help her get through the painful shoot.
She added, "I remember just overdosing on it. Even if you're just doing a punch, your neck can get thrown out. It was sort of a gauge of how hard you worked that day if you couldn't move the next day!"
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters was released in the US earlier this month and is released in the UK tomorrow (February 27).
