Emile Hirsch: Infection Nearly Ends Kilimanjaro Climb

Emile Hirsch: Infection Nearly Ends Kilimanjaro Climb

Emile Hirsch and co-star Lupe Fiasco attend the premiere screening of their new documentary, Summit on the Summit: Kilimanjaro at NYC’s Tribeca Grand Hotel on Wednesday (March 10) in New York City.

At the event hosted by Kenna & Momentum Worldwide, Emile shared about the little snafu he had climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa.

“I had an ingrown hair in (whispers) my groin, so I couldn’t walk!” the 24-year-old actor exclusively told “I don’t like to talk about it because it got infected, there was pus and it was nasty. There was a 90% chance they would have had to medevac me out of there but thankfully my condition improved and I finished the climb.”

Emile‘s condition is briefly mentioned in Summit on the Summit: Kilimanjaro, which raises awareness about the clean-water crisis. It airs this Sunday (March 14) at 9PM ET on MTV. Tune in because Lupe is hilarious in it!!!

    Jessica Biel has such a doggy face and horse mouch, i wonder from how many different animals is she developed?

    i don’t understand this “raising awareness” $hit. that whole time spent climbing the damn mountain could have been spent on time cleaning their water…

    What nonsense. They took the focus off the cause they claim to care about to make it about them and their stupid climb up a mountain.

    Like the other poster said, they should’ve spent all the time cleaning the water instead of climbing a mountain.

    They are all unemployed people and had to spend their time somehow, and they had the opportunity to be watched on TV – of course they did it. To clean the water had been a real job for them

  • xxx

    Hahahaha i like emile but this climb stuff is all BS

  • me me me

    wow. from now on, when annoying people ask me why i climb, i’ll tell them it raises awareness about the clean-water crisis. it’ll probaby make just as much a difference as their climb.

  • so there

    to everyone saying it doesn’t make a difference — it certainly has all of you thinking and talking about it. and maybe someone else will be inspired to do something instead of bitch about how someone else could have.
