Brain Injury, Family Deaths Depress George Clooney
He told America's National Public Radio in Los Angeles: "There was this scene where I was taped to a chair and getting beaten up and we did quite a few takes. The chair was kicked over and I hit my head. I tore my dura, which is the wrap around my spine which holds in spinal fluid. But it's not my back, it's my brain. I basically bruised my brain. It's bouncing around my head because it's not supported by the spinal fluid."
The accident left Clooney with excruciating headaches and serious memory loss. He added: "Before the surgery it was the most unbearable pain I've ever been through, literally where you'd go; 'Well, you'll have to kill yourself at some point, you can't live like this.'"
But the 44-year-old revealed life became even more difficult after members of his family passed away. He confessed: "It's probably the worst year personally I have ever had. My brother-in-law died of a heart attack aged 45; my grandma fell, broke her hip and died this summer. And my dog got attacked by a rattlesnake and killed."
