Lightning strikes Gibson's 'Christ'

Friday, October 24, 2003 Posted: 4:38 PM EDT (2038 GMT)



ROME, Italy -- Actor Jim Caviezel, who plays Jesus in Mel Gibson's controversial film "The Passion of Christ" was struck by lightning during shooting.

Caviezel was uninjured, but a producer described how he saw smoke coming from the actor's ear.

An assistant director on the film, Jan Michelini, was also hit -- for the second time in a few months.

The first time, a lightning fork struck his umbrella during filming on top of a hill near Matera in Italy, causing light burns to the tips of his fingers, VLife, a supplement to Variety publications said in its October issue.

A few months later the second strike happened, a few hours from Rome.

Michelini was again carrying an umbrella, and standing next to Caviezel on top of a hill, the magazine said.

Both were hit, with the main bolt striking Caviezel while one of its forks hit Michelini's umbrella. Neither were hurt.

The film, which is spoken in Latin and Aramaic, has come in for criticism from some religious leaders. It portrays the last hours of Jesus, but some Jewish and Roman Catholic groups are concerned the film will fuel anti-Semitism.

Well... Unfortunately, Gibson's depiction of some events is not historically accurate... Particularily concerning what happens to Christ.



...This is how misunderstandings get passed through generations.

From what I read, it's based off the 'literal interpretation of the Bible'...

I knew Gibson was Catholic, had no idea he was Ultra Conservative and rejects the current papal.

yeah, don't stand outside in a storm with a metal unbrella.
you'd think he would have gotten the message after the first time.
