‘Jackass’ stars explain a few broken bones

Concussion, illness all occupational hazards


No “Jackass” movie gets made without a few broken bones, concussions and infections among the cast.

“There’s a few bones I haven’t broken,” said “Jackass 3D” star Johnny Knoxville at Par’s premiere at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood on Oct. 13. “There’s a bone I wish I hadn’t broken … but it’s all healed now.”

Bam Margera’s mother, April, said the hardest part was going to the doctor.

“It’s really embarrassing for me to stand there and explain what my 30-year-old son has wrong with him,” she said.

Helmer Jeff Tremaine had a different take: “Never thought it would be on TV, never thought we’d make a first movie, never thought we’d make a second movie,” he said. “Here we are with a 3D movie and these giant expensive cameras they trusted us with. It’s absolutely ridiculous, and we appreciate every second of that.”
