Director of Top Gun: Maverick admits Glen Powell got hurt while filming

According to Fox News, Top Gun: Maverick director Joseph Kosinski said during the Critics’ Choice Awards that actor Glen Powell was hurt while filming the well-known beach football scene because he gave it his all.

Joseph said, “One that I get asked about a lot and a very memorable day, was when we shot the beach football scene. The actors were in a very kind of stressed out state, they’d all been working so hard to get ready for that scene.”

He further added, “They were under the pressure, the weight of the original scene being so iconic. I remember Glen went out 110 percent on the first play and hurt himself, but luckily recovered quickly and we were able to get a great version of it.”
