Lisa D'Amato learned first hand how dangerous working on a movie set can be. People.com reported on Thursday, Jan. 24 that the winner of America's Next Top Model all-star cycle in 2011 has sustained serious injuries to her face during an accident. D'Amato, 32, suffered a broken nose in multiple places as well as several lacerations to her chin, forehand and lips.
The model was in Colorado filming the indie film Cowboys and Indians when the freak accident occurred. D'Amato was hanging out with a crew member and decided to do back to back handstands, which ended in tragedy. D'Amato landed on her face and smushed her nose and the crew member fell on top of her causing more injuries. The actress and model was then rushed to the hospital where a plastic surgeon reset her nose.
D'Amato had the following to say about the experience:
I didn't have the best nose in the world to begin with. It gave me character. Now I have a nice little nose job. I get a super cute nose.
D'Amato posted some very graphic photos of her appearance on her social media accounts for Facebook and Instagram. The model is currently recovering from the incident which occurred several days ago and is expected to begin filming a television pilot in the near future.
