Johnny Knoxville talks Jackass injuries

SPIN's Sarina Bellissimo caught up with Jackass Forever star Johnny Knoxville for a chat about the new movie.

Among other things, he spoke about his doctor's reaction to his numerous head injuries.

In the new Jackass movie, Johnny comes head to head with a bull in an outdoor ring.

The encounter left him with a broken wrist, broken ribs and a concussion.

Sarina asked him if the incident turned him off stunts, and he said, "My neurologist had that talk with me."

"I've had 16 concussions and that one was really bad. Took me months to recover from."

"He [was like], 'You just can't have another blow to the head.'"

"So I heard it. But I knew going into this movie this was my last hurrah on big stunts."

"I've been doing this 20 years and I'm still walking and still talking."

"I'd rather walk out on my own accord," he admitted.
