Ed Norton Thrown Off Horse, Breaks Back

Edward Norton recently said he broke three vertebrae during a horse riding accident on the set of his new film The Painted Veil (movie stills below). The horse apparently threw him off while he was galloping before filming a scene for the movie.

Here’s what Ed said in a recent interview with AP Radio: “One of those horses chucked me off pretty badly. I broke my spine in like three places. I broke my back. I broke three vertebrae in my back. I felt like my back was horribly wrenched but I sort of assumed I was OK, and I didn’t actually find out I had broken it until I went to Hong Kong. I cracked my 10th, 11th and especially my 12th thoracic vertebrae.”

The Painted Veil tells the tale of a woman who becomes dissatisfied with her marriage, as her husband favors of his research over time with her. An affair leads her on a journey of self-discovery, and her new dedication to fighting cholera brings her to the Far East. The film is directed by John Curran, was shot entirely in China, and co-stars real-life couple Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts. The Painted Veil hits theaters tomorrow in limited release.
