Melissa Mccarthy - Melissa Mccarthy Injured The Heat Co-star During Shoot

Melissa Mccarthy was convinced she had broken co-star Michael Mcdonald's nose on the set of new movie The Heat after a stunt went wrong.

The Bridesmaids star plays a detective in the crime thriller and she was required to throw a phone book at MCDonald in one scene - but MCCarthy's aim left the actor in agony.

He tells People.com, "I could have sworn my nose was broken. When we rehearsed it, (MCCarthy) was six feet away, but when we shot it, she was like two feet away. So she threw it and it was like, 'Boom!' It came so hard and so fast.

"Everyone, including Melissa and me, was thinking that my nose was broken. We weren't sure. And all I could think of was, 'Nobody break. Nobody laugh. Because I only want to do this (scene) once.' She was like, 'Oh, my God!' She ran over so fast to see if I was all right that she slid on the phone book on the floor and then everybody just ran to Melissa, of course. So there you have it. I knew where I stood. I knew where I ranked."
