Jackass star Johnny Knoxville has admitted to having 20 doctors’ phone numbers saved on his mobile phone.

The 42-year-old stuntman has been injured many times over the course of his Jackass career but he has explained that getting hurt doesn’t scare him as he’s so used to it.

He revealed to Nuts, “I’ve got 20 doctors’ numbers in my phone! Recently, I fractured my elbow and right now I have a torn shoulder.

“My left side’s my impact side so it’s all f******. And my back’s blown out but I don’t know what else to do besides move forward. It’s what I do and a big part of it, so I don’t really think about it.”

Knoxville currently stars in Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa which is in cinemas now.
