America’s Next Top Model All-Star 2011 winner Lisa D’Amato suffered serious facial injuries while clowning around on the set of a new indie movie, “Cowboys and Indians.”
D’Amato was doing a handstand up against a crew member when they both fell, and the crew member landed on top of her breaking her nose in several places and leaving lacerations on her forehead, lips and chin.
“It was a total freak accident,” she told People magazine.
“I looked at my hands. They were covered with blood. That’s when I thought, ‘Oh, my God, what did I do to myself?’ Of course, I started crying.”
The 32-year-old was rushed to the hospital where she underwent facial reconstruction surgery.
“I didn’t have the best nose in the world to begin with. It gave me character,” D’Amato joked while looking at the silver lining. “Now I have a nice little nose job. I get a super cute nose.”
D’Amato has posted graphic photos of her injuries and healing process on Instagram.
