Of course, Ford has starred in a slew of movies that required him to play a daring hero. As a result, it makes sense that he might get bumped and bruised doing his job. It’s no surprise, then, that the actor has multiple stories about his on-set injuries. And he got them while filming everything from the Indiana Jones series to Star Wars and The Fugitive.

But Ford’s most noticeable scar didn’t come from a movie set, nor did it come from any of his highly publicized accidents from his hobby of flying planes. Instead, the action hero got this gash long before he became a Hollywood superstar. Don’t let that fool you, though. The way he earned the scar was still scary and painful.
