She may have played a pint-sized pageant queen but Abigail Breslin packs a mean punch. The Little Miss Sunshine star punched a stunt man in the face so hard that the trained fighter had to receive medical attention.
The 16-year-old was on set of her new film Final Girl last week when the accident happened, according to TMZ.
Despite her small size, Abigail has insisted in doing her own stunts in the thriller, which sees her punching her way to safety against a pack of murderous teenaged boys.
However, it seems the actress got a little bit too into her role as she was hanging out of a car and ‘pretending’ to knock out her scene partner.
The stunt man quickly became a method actor without really meaning to, according to TMZ.
‘We’re told Abigail accidentally clocked the stunt guy for real and the punch was so powerful, he had to stop filming and was rushed straight to the on-set medic,’ the website reports.
‘Our sources tell us Abigail was extremely apologetic when it happened. And as for the guy … he resumed filming a short time later … with a giant black eye.’
