"Yeah, I've been in hospital quite a bit this year actually. I slipped with a knife and stabbed myself in the hand. I was trying to put a hole in my belt with a knife while wearing it. It was such a stupid thing to do. Part of my head thought this is really dangerous and the other part overrode it and just did it. So I had to go to hospital because it was really close to the nerve junctions. The surgeons were just amazing – and really handsome."
