Josh Duhamel Reveals He Almost Died After Being Washed Over A Cliff While Filming 'Shotgun Wedding'

During his virtual appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Josh showed off the video he was filming at the time to show just how big the wave was and opened up about how it nearly took his life.

“I had some time off and right below where I was staying was this beautiful cove,” he started before giving some more backstory. “Earlier in the shoot, it was this perfectly calm turquoise little cove. I actually jumped off this platform into the water and swam over to the beach then walked back. A week later this place was completely different because now the ocean was really tumultuous that day.”

Josh went on, saying that “the waves were crashing like 30 feet in the air” on the day of the video. “This rogue wave comes up as I’m video taping this thing and literally washed me almost over the edge of this cliff.”

“But it turned me into hamburger on many parts of my body afterwards,” he confessed. “It was one of the near-death experiences of my life, for sure.”

“I cannot believe my phone survived that. I can laugh about it now, and I never told anyone,” Josh said, adding that Jimmy was “the first person I showed that to, because if I had shown that to Lionsgate they probably would have kicked me off the movie.”
