4. Leonardo DiCaprio in Django Unchained

Everyone has a hardon for this story so I’m sure you know it by now. During a quite powerful scene where DiCaprio’s character goes all crazy pants on his house guests after realizing their ruse to take Broomhilda from his possession, the actor got so worked up that he gashed his hand wicked bad. Stitches bad.

Having just smashed a prop with his stupid hand, Mr. Dawson had very few options: either stop the scene because he’s a dummy who can’t not break shit, or work with it. Y’all know what happened – he kept it going, making the scene that much more visceral as he smeared his blood all over Kerry Washinton’s face, which we all have to imagine she was just thrilled about. I’d like to think that somewhere a greeting card company was hired for a specialty “Sorry I Smeared My Blood On Your Face.” Disgusting. And awesome.
