London: Gerard Butler who got injured while shooting for 'Of Men And Mavericks’, did not let the accident act as a hamper to the ongoing shoot.

Butler was shooting in northern California when a large wave brought him crashing down, leaving him struggling to keep his head above the water.

'I was going to go back that day. I was actually in the ambulance and wanted to go back, which was a little crazy, but it's pretty addictive,' as reported.

'This was maybe one of the few times that the reports were not exaggerated. It was a pretty close call... (The waves) just took me and I couldn't get up. It was pretty hairy,' he said.
