Jake Gyllenhaal contracted staphylococcus on the set of a movie?

Jake Gyllenhaal he suffered a hand infection while filming one of the fight scenes that will soon be seen in the film “Road House”. According to accurate information, he contracted a staph infection.

How did this accident happen? The actor revealed this during a podcast with Conor McGregor.

“We fight on the floor, around tables, we fight around glass” – this is how he described this action scene.

During this moment of recording, he carelessly placed his hand directly on the glass and his only thought at that moment was: “that’s a lot of glass.”

Of course, there was a team on the set that dealt with any injuries on an ongoing basis, but the actor was not entirely sure which of the wounds caused the serious infection. Even though his entire hand was seriously swollen, he believed he was being properly cared for.

“Luckily, I really, really tried to take care of everything we were doing and my body while we were working. I didn’t have any serious injuries,” he assured in the interview.

In the film “Road House”, Jake Gyllenhaal plays a former UFC fighter who, after retiring from boxing, becomes a security guard at a bar in the Florida Keys, alongside Conor McGregor, Jessica Williams, Post Malone and Daniela Melchior.
