Lily Collins - Lily Collins Injured On Movie Set

Actress Lily Collins was left battered and bruised on the set of new movie Mirror Mirror after taking several blows from a sword while shooting fight scenes with Armie Hammer.
Collins, daughter of veteran rocker Phil Collins, plays Snow White in the adventure film and the script required her to clash onscreen with co-stars Hammer and Julia Roberts.
She was so determined to make their swordfighting scenes look realistic, she took fencing lessons for four months - but she was still unable to effectively parry Hammer's blows when the cameras rolled.
Collins tells Stella magazine, "For one scene Armie and I were fighting... There were 150 sword moves and Armie smacked me several times. No blood was drawn, but I was so bruised. It doesn't matter how much padding you wear, those swords are lethal."
The actress also recalls an eye-watering incident when Roberts pulled out a chunk of her hair, adding, "In one scene my dress got caught in my shoe and she pulled some of my hair out. That's the take they used. It really hurt. Afterwards they yelled 'cut' and she said, 'I'm so sorry'. And I said, 'It's totally fine'. Because it's Julia."
