Jessica Chastain details head injury she suffered on ‘The 355’ set that sent her to the hospital

Jessica Chastain’s latest role sent her to the hospital, the actress revealed on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on Wednesday.

Chastain, 44, stars in the action thriller “The 355,” which opens Friday. In it, she plays a spy, and because the film was on a low budget, she did some of the stunts herself.

Co-star Penelope Cruz joined Chastain on Corden’s show on Wednesday, where she revealed she was “really worried” when one of Chastain’s stunts went wrong.

“You must have been injured. Some of the things you’re doing in the movie are kind of ridiculous,” the driver told Chastain, who admitted that “he actually had to go to the hospital.”

“I was doing a fight scene and it was on a marble floor. I misjudged. I had fallen and hit my head. I misjudged the distance,” Chastain explained. “I heard a creak. Maybe that’s why I am the way I am today.”

Though she’s now taking the situation lightly, Chastain revealed that others on set “stopped and looked scared” while she was “a little stunned.”

“My double comes up to me, he’s French and doesn’t speak much English, he just comes up to me and says, ‘I’m sorry, but I have to put it back on.’ And I was setting there, and I was like, ‘Put what again? Is my brain out of my face? What’s going on?’ And I guess it was just a bruise that was pushing back on my head. I did a couple more takes because, you know, I don’t give up easily, and then I went to the hospital. “

Chastain is also serving as the film’s producer. “The 355” also stars Diane Kruger, Lupita Nyong’o, and Fan Bingbing. They form a group of spies who must stop a terrorist organization.

He also revealed on the “Late Late Show” that the movie was made at a lower cost.

“We did it for a fraction of the cost of what it would normally be and we own the movie,” explained Chastain.

“We convinced you to go to the hospital, because she didn’t want to go. She wanted to move on. I was like, ‘You’re going to the hospital!'” Cruz said, according to Yahoo! Entertainment.
