    Default Edward Norton breaks his back during filming

    Movie star EDWARD NORTON was left in agony on the set of his new movie THE PAINTED VEIL after he was thrown from a horse onto a pile of rocks.

    The FIGHT CLUB actor was shooting the film with NAOMI WATTS in China when his steed got the better of him and he was left with a broken back.

    Co-star Naomi Watts unaware of Nortons injuries.

    Norton admits he had no idea just how badly he'd injured his back at first: "I did not feel good and I remember I thought at the time, 'This could be really bad, this could be one of those stories; I'm gonna end up one of those people.'

    "But I didn't actually know it was broken. I finished the film out and then went to Hong Kong. I was in a lot of pain."

    The actor admits the injury actually helped him perfect his character in the film.
    He explains, "I was playing this kind of uptight British doctor and it (injury) actually kind of worked."

    Norton jokes, "That's how far I'm willing to go. I mean DE NIRO just gained weight (to play JAKE LA MOTTA in RAGING BULL)".

    Wait sec...he broke his back but didn't know it? I'm confused.

    ^^ I don't get that either. How can you break your back and still be up walking around and working? More likely he sprained or bruised the muscles - that can hurt like a bitch.

    I feel for him. I fell out of a tree once and landed on rocks and on my back.(shudders at painful memory)
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    You can break your back and not know, just as you can break your neck and not know. My brother's sister went on holiday with her best friend, who jumped head first into a swimming pool and hit her head on the bottom, breaking her neck. She got up, out of the pool and walked about for 2 days before knowing it was broken.

    The body works in mysterious ways!
