Emile Hirsch: Infection Nearly Ends Kilimanjaro Climb
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 JustJared.com. “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!!!
