Ouch, it hurt.
‘Halloween Kills’ star Kyle Richards revealed that he broke his nose while shooting for his scenes for the upcoming film.
Richards, 52, reprises her role as the grown-up Lindsay Wallace. The former child star portrayed the Laurie Strode babysat of baby Jamie Lee Curtis in 1978’s “Halloween.”
The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” persona reunites with Curtis, 62, for the new sequel to the acclaimed horror franchise and she had a slightly unfortunate fate during filming.
“I didn’t know it was broken when it happened,” Richards told Us Weekly. “I just knew I hurt myself, but I didn’t tell anyone. I didn’t want the stunt double to step and they should be like, ‘Oh Kyle, you know, let the stunt double handle .’ “
To ease her pain, Richards pops some Advil an assistant director gave her and gets back to her craft.
However, it wasn’t until she returned home to Los Angeles that something was right. “As soon as I got back in L.A…. I was like, ‘What’s going on?’ Then my makeup artist in LA said, ‘You have a bone coming out of here. What’s going on?’ And so I went to the doctor,” said the mother of four. “It didn’t bleed, so I thought I was fine. It had been hurting for a long time.”
Richards also revealed how the accident happened in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
“I was working with a stunt coordinator to do a fight scene with Michael Myers and um, yeah, let’s say when I was rehearsing something flew back and hit me in the face and I knew right away Turns out something was wrong,” she said.
Curtis and Richards are joined by Judy Greer, Andy Matichak, Nancy Stephens and Anthony Michael Hall in the latest film adaptation. James Judd Courtney returns as serial killer Michael Myers.
Scream Queen Curtis’s Laurie Strode and her family must combat their obsession with killing Michael and wreak havoc on the city of Haddenfield once again.
Richards looked back on her time on the set of the iconic series and explained to Us Weekly that she didn’t think the film would be a cult classic. “I had no idea it was going to be such a big deal and, you know, after all these years the fans would still be passionate about it,” she said.
She continued, “Just like when I signed on to do ‘Housewives’, I thought I was working for two months and I didn’t know if it would be a flop or a hit. And here we are [the] Number 1 show on Bravo after so many years. So, you know, you never know.”
“Halloween Kills” will hit theaters Friday and screaming in peace.
