Hugh Jackman is being held responsible for breaking his brother-in-law's leg, wrist and nose. The "Australia" actor's sister Sonya banned him from using her husband Richard as his stunt double after he broke so many bones on set.
Hugh, 40, said: "My brother-in-law has doubled for me in a few of my movies. It's a weird situation, though, because things can go wrong."
"One time on 'Van Helsing' he was doubling for me in a scene where I got really thrown about. He ended up breaking his leg and I had to phone my sister to explain and say I was sending him home."
"He's cracked his wrist and nose, too. She's not best pleased."
Hugh recently described how grueling his role as The Drover - an Australian version of a cowboy - was in outback drama "Australia."
He said: "This is how they describe my character's horsemanship, 'The Drover, astride his horse like a knight in shining armor corralling 100 wild horses, by himself.' That freaked me out."
"Then it says, 'The Drover rides along on the saddle pursuing a bull. He leaps down and throws the massive beast on to its side. The Drover takes out a bush knife, grabs the bull by the b***s and slices them!'"
Hugh has also been tipped to star in the eighth series of U.S. dancing reality show "Dancing with the Stars."
