Martin Lawrence


The famous comedian suffered a heat stroke in 1999 that almost killed him. Lawrence was wearing several layers of clothing while jogging in the heat, in an attempt to lose weight for a role.

When he returned home, he had a temperature of 107. Lawrence was rushed to the hospital where he briefly slipped into a coma.


Jane Seymour


Jane Seymour was one of the most beautiful Bond girls ever. But you probably know that already. What you may not know is that she almost died when she was only 36 years old.

Seymour had a severe case of the flu and was given an injection of penicillin. She suffered an allergic reaction which led to a near-death experience that changed her life forever. 


Rachel Bilson


Rachel Bilson almost died in a car accident when she was 14 years old. She basically died and came back from the dead, as she often describes her near-death experience. The actress suffers from migraines to this day as a result of her injuries back then.


Gary Busey


In 1988, Gary Busey had a scary motorcycle accident. He suffered from a cracked skull, and doctors thought he may have permanent brain damage. He was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, but he miraculously survived.

Since then, Busey went on doing some awesome movies including Point Break and Predator 2. 


Sylvester Stallone


In Rocky 4, Balboa defeats Ivan Drago in the Russian’s backyard. In real life, however, things were a little different. Sylvester Stallone wanted the fight scenes to look realistic. So he kept pushing Dolph Lundgren to hit him harder. 

Lundgren agreed to not hold back and punched Stallone so hard in the chest that almost killed him. Like literally. Stallone’s heart slammed against his breastbone and began to swell. “The beating became labored, and without medical attention the heart would’ve continued to swell until it stopped,” Stallone said in an interview, who spent a couple of weeks in an intensive care unit.
