Los Angeles, Dec 4 (IANS) Actor Leonardo DiCaprio's hand got injured while he was shooting a scene for his upcoming movie "Django Unchained".

The 38-year-old was supposed to hit his hand a number of times on a table. But, while doing so, he accidentally smashed his hand on a crystal glass.

"Leo had slammed his hand on the table countless times and he moved his hand further and he crushed a crystal cordial glass. Blood was dripping down his hand," Variety.com quoted Stacey Sher, the film's producer, as saying.

However, the actor did not stop shooting.

"He never broke character. He kept going. He was in such a zone. It was very intense. He required stitches," she added.
