Brian Grazer revealed he left Tom Hanks with a permanent scar while surfing.

The mega-producer, whose films include the Hanks’ hit “Splash,” recalled that the duo owned homes next to each other in Malibu and took a surfing lesson… when things went awry.  

“I see Tom Hanks, like in the impact zone, while I’m taking off on this wave,” Grazer recalled on the podcast, “In Depth” with Graham Bensinger. “And I’m thinking like, ‘I can get around him.’ But I’m also thinking, ‘S–t! He’s a movie star. He’s the movie star. Am I going to kill the movie star?”

Hanks survived, but wound up with a scar on his leg. “It caused him to get, I think, 35, 36 stitches in his calf,” Grazer admitted.

Hanks has previously said of the incident on the same podcast: “I have a vicious scar in my calf from Brian Grazer running over me on his surfboard… His fin sliced me open to the point that I had to go to the clinic in Malibu, and get 37 stitches on the inside and outside.

“My calf muscle has always been too short because I made the mistake of going surfing with Brian Grazer.”
