The British actor was also put in danger on a movie set like his wife. However, his accident was definitely more unique.
"The worst part filming Borat was the naked fight, because I had a 250 lb. man’s ass on my face, and his buttocks was so big that I couldn’t actually breathe when I was underneath there,” he said. "So, I had about 30 seconds of air under there before I had to breathe in. And I had a signal with the director, which was when I thought I was going to pass out, I would hit the mattress three times.
He continued, “If you look at the ‘Borat’ film now, you will see that I do hit the mattress three times, and the director didn’t stop filming, which meant I was faced with this very stark choice, which was either to die, or to breathe in the rancid air from my costar’s rectum. And when I was underneath there, I decided to die. Luckily, my co-star moved off and I managed to finish the scene. Otherwise, that would have been a very inglorious end to my life."

"If it had swollen any more, I would have died. After that, I was like, 'Dolph, it's only a movie, bro…'"

The Hollywood icon had a heart attack while filming Apocalypse Now, and had to crawl for help from the isolated set.
"Even though I did not physically die that night, the Willard character in me did," he said. "My face-to-face confrontation with death and my own human vulnerability purged the need to be an empty celluloid image bent on the accumulation of such things as fame or wealth."
