Johnny Knoxville Reveals ‘Jackass Forever’ Caused Him To Suffer Brain Damage


Johnny reveals the movie ‘ Forever' caused him to suffer brain damage.

Johnny Knoxville will make his final appearance in Jackass Forever. In a recent interview, he revealed that a stunt that left him flying through the air has caused him to have a concussion and a brain hemorrhage.

In a recent interview with Howard Stern, Knoxville disclosed that when he was knocked into the air by a bull, it not only left him with a broken wrist and broken ribs but brain damage, “Yeah, I got a brain hemorrhage from that. So my cognitive abilities were in steep decline after that hit.” He added, “No one in my family is happy with the . The bull hit was the worst hit I've ever taken from a bull, or maybe period.” Knoxville recalls what the neurosurgeon told him, “I remember taking some tests. The neurosurgeon said, ‘Do you have trouble paying attention right now? I said, ‘Yeah, why? He goes, ‘Because you scored a 17 on [your attention].' That's out of 100.”

Knoxville described some of the treatments that he had to undergo. Some treatments include a transcranial magnetic stimulation, “which they buzz your head with these magnets for about 30 minutes at a time for like, oh God, I would say 10 to 12 treatments over a series of two months, and it's supposed to help with depression and help with my cognitive skills.” The treatment affected the way he edited the movie because he could not sit still.

The stunts he did in Jackass Forever gave Knoxville a wake-up call as he said, “I can't take any more hits to the head. My brain was just playing tricks on me. I got really depressed and over-focused on things… I did have to start medication for the first time in my life. It completely turned me around – that and doing therapy. It was a tough recovery from this last injury, but I'm great now. I feel like I'm the healthiest I've ever been.”

Jackass Forever is set to release in cinemas on February 4.
