Last night (August 15) was the premiere of She-Hulk, where Jameela Jamil spoke to Entertainment Tonight about an injury she sustained while filming the Marvel Disney Plus series. Standing on the red carpet in front of the TCL Chinese Theaters in Hollywood, she spoke about a muscle in a place she did not know could be pulled during her stunt work as a social media influencer with superstrength, Titania.
“Oh, I did it all. I was hurting in [a] place that I really didn’t know exists. Like, you’ll probably have to bleep this out, but I pulled a muscle in my a–hole.”
What led to such an injury was all the stunts Jameela Jamil got to do. The actress saw herself as less of an action star and more of a “puddle with bangs.” It led to a new experience and knowledge as she learned “jiu-jitsu and kung fu and combat in the air.”
“But I got to do all my stunts pretty much myself. And that was something I’ve never done before because I’m the ultimate couch potato.”
