Justin Theroux suffered a number of injuries while filming The Leftovers.

The 44-year-old actor - who is married to Jennifer Aniston - admitted he had to visit hospital after hurting himself while filming the three seasons of the show.

Speaking at the Inside: The Leftovers panel discussion during the 2016 Vulture Festival, he said: "I went to the hospital. I got 10 stitches in my lip and I broke my nose.

"Both episode eights in both seasons I shattered my hand, I got stitches in my head, and I broke my knuckles."

And it's not just on set where Justin has had back luck as he previously revealed he nearly died on his honeymoon.

The actor tied the knot with Jennifer in August 2015 and nearly lost his life when he went scuba diving in Bora Bora following the pair's nuptials.

He recalled how he was enjoying "the pretty fish" and coral with a group of friends and an instructor who didn't speak much English, when he saw his oxygen tank was low.

Because of the language barrier, the instructor didn't understand the gravity of the situation.

He explained: "He just kept swimming away from me. I got to my friend [and said], 'Dude, look.' And he said, 'Oh my God, you are about to die.'"

However, after a second attempt, Justin's instructor understood he needed to act quick.

He added: "He pulls the emergency respirator out, puts it in my mouth, hits this clear button, which sends all these bubbles out, and it sends water down my throat. So now I'm also linked to this jerk because now I have to swim alongside him and finally he rolls his eyes and we go up.

"I'm just looking at this guy through my mask [thinking], 'I'm going to murder this guy.' I was going to throw the biggest haymaker!'"
