Jackass co-creator Johnny Knoxville is done with 'large stunts' after a bull-charge left him with broken bones and hemorrhaging in the brain.


During filming for the latest Jackass film, Johnny Knoxville was charged by an angry bull, which resulted in the star suffering a broken wrist, broken ribs and a severe concussion that led to a decline in his cognitive abilities.

Talking candidly about the incident on Howard Stern's radio show, Knoxville admitted that the horrific stunt was his worst hit yet.

"My cognitive abilities were in steep decline after that hit," he said.

When asked what his wife thought about the traumatic experience Knoxville responded, "No one in my family is happy with the stunt."

"The bull hit was the worst hit I’ve ever taken from a bull or maybe period. I remember taking some tests. The neurosurgeon said, 'Do you have trouble paying attention right now?' I said, 'Yeah, why?' He goes, 'Because you scored a 17'... That's out of 100."
