Gerard Butler was seriously injured after a brush with death while filming for a movie in 2011. The actor was starring in surfing-drama Chasing Mavericks when he got caught in a wave.

"It was a pretty close call. It looked like a tsunami coming in. I was down. I just didn't come back up, really," the actor said. "I just started to think, 'Wow, I'm going to die making a movie.'"
