Jackass' Steve-O Tells Why Mike Tyson Once Broke His Nose... At Charlie Sheen's Roast
"This guy comes up to the stage and he says 'Steve-O, your nose needs to be set right now'..."
Jackass may be long gone but the stories the crew have left behind will probably be circling the internet forever.
Take this one for example – ever heard about the time Bam Margera snuck up behind Steve-O’s with boxing gloves on, broke his nose, and then Mike Tyson had to break it again to reset it?
It’s a hilarious story featuring everything from Jackass to drugs to Charlie Sheen. Have a read below and watch the full video with Steve-O to make your day that much better...
"When we were filming Jackass 3D, Bam snuck up behind me and pulled his Rocky trick, violently breaking my nose," he told his Facebook audience. “This is what I looked like the next morning.
“I didn't do anything about it, but about two months later I decided I didn't like the way it looked - it was all crooked. So, I said 'I'm going to a nose doctor and the damn movie can pay for it and I'm getting it fixed'. Well, I go see this doctor and he says: 'it's healed this way, if you want me to fix it, I would have to re-break it with a chisel'. I heard that and I said 'ah nah, I'm cool'.
“Then, about a year later, I went up on the [Comedy Central] Charlie Sheen Roast with my buddy Mike Tyson - who I had done all kinds of drugs with in the past and even at one point been locked up in a psychiatric ward with him.
“When we were in the loony bin I was begging him: 'Mike, I'm not asking you to punch me. Just hold your fist still with your elbow locked, and I'll dive into it with my face'. But the timing wasn't right, until we were on the Charlie Sheen roast. And that's when I dove into Mike Tyson's fist. I broke the hell out of my nose.
“Right away blood's all coming out of it, it was the last thing that happened at the roast, and this guy comes up to the stage and he says: 'Steve-O, your nose needs to be set right now. I'm a Kung Fu instructor – I've set like twenty broken noses'. And I just trusted the guy, so I sit on the stage, he puts a thumb on either side of my nose, and he just wrenches it into position, and it hurt like hell.
"But he kept messing with it until it was lined up straight. This is what I looked like the next morning.
"But when I healed from this, my nose was perfect. I don't think that doctor could have done as good of a job as Mike Tyson and the wacky Kung Fu guy."
