HOLLYWOOD – German director Werner Herzog was shot by a crazed fan during a recent interview with the BBC.
The 63-year-old was chatting with movie journalist Mark Kermode about his documentary Grizzly Man, when a sniper opened fire with an air rifle.

Kermode explains, “I thought a firecracker had gone off.

“Herzog, as if it was the most normal thing in the world, said, ‘Oh, someone is shooting at us. We must go.’

“He had a bruise the size of a snooker ball, with a hole in. He just carried on with the interview while bleeding quietly in his boxer shorts.”

An unrepentant Herzog insisted, “It was not a significant bullet. I am not afraid.”

Herzog is superman. He’s from another universe. He gets shot and he just calmly passes it off. He’s fearless. Take a look at the video of the interview. The video seems to play as just images with the audio. And also, he rescued Joaquin Phoenix from a car crash just recently. This man blows my mind.
