Johnny Knoxville's Eyeball Popped Out Of Its Socket When He Blew His Nose

Johnny Knoxville's Eyeball Popped Out Of Its Socket When He Blew His Nose

The Jackass crew are known for doing some silly stunts. Some even leave them with problems in the future.

Take Johnny Knoxville as a prime example as he revealed how his eyeball once popped out from his socket. Days after a trip to the hospital it popped out again because he simply sneezed.

During an undercover internet session for GQ, the 50-year-old had accounts created where he could post real life facts such as the eyeball escapade.

He said: "It did pop out of its socket twice, you know. I had a terrible concussion and I didn't know it at the time but I also powdered this bone in my face. It didn't break it just disappeared.

"I remember coming home from the hospital that night and I had a little blood in my nose and I just kind of took my fingers and blew. Right?

"And then my eye ball went crrrrch and I called the producer I'm like 'I gotta go back to the hospital, my eye just popped out'.

"He's like, 'hahaha'. I'm like, 'no, my eye just popped out'. He's like, 'I'll be right there'.


"Then about a week later I was out with [Chris] Pontius and he said something funny and for whatever reason I wasn't supposed to sneeze for six weeks.

"I wasn't allowed to sneeze which is like, if you've got to, you've got to.

"But Pontius said something funny, I help my nose and laughed [gestures to eye popping out]. So, had double vision, pushed it back in. Good times."

On top of revealing the information about his dicky eyeball, Knoxville also told fans about how he and Jeff Tremaine found the crew.

He said: "Well most of us came out of Big Brother Magazine where Jeff was the editor and I was one of the contributors and Pontius was a writer.

"They covered Wee Man, they covered Steve-O and then we kind of joined forces with Ryan Dunn and Bam Margera from the CKY videos and Preston [Lacy] actually, he was a wild card, he was on my couch at the time the show came about.

"And we got Ehren [McGhehey] through Dave England. We were shooting the pilot and he's like 'ey can I bring my buddy to shoot?' Yeah, bring him."
