LOS ANGELES — FOX 4’s Shawn Edwards sat down with Miles Teller, the star of the new film “Bleed for This.” It’s the inspirational story of World Champion Boxer Vinny Pazienza who, after a near fatal car crash, which left him not knowing if he’d ever walk again, made one of sports most incredible comebacks.

Shawn asked Teller about the most serious injury Teller ever had, and was surprised at the answer.

“I’ve had like five concussions, random stuff stupid stuff, dude. The first when I was three. I got in a pillow fight and hit my head in a corner and got stitches. A game of Marco Polo. I hit the shallow end. I played the game of baseball with a basektball. Metal bat, rubber ball, knocked myself out,” he said.

But then he described the worst:

“A car accident when I was 20. I got ejected from a car that flipped eight times going 80 mph. That’s how I got all these scars and everything. The results weren’t as bad as they should have been, but that was pretty hairy for a minute.” said  Teller.
