Los Angeles: Actor Leonardo DiCaprio`s hand got injured while he was shooting a scene for his upcoming movie ‘Django Unchained’.

The 38-year-old was supposed to hit his hand a number of times on a table. But, while doing so, he accidentally smashed his hand on a crystal glass.

"Leo had slammed his hand on the table countless times and he moved his hand further and he crushed a crystal cordial glass. Blood was dripping down his hand," a website has quoted Stacey Sher, the film`s producer, as saying.

However, the actor did not stop shooting.

"He never broke character. He kept going. He was in such a zone. It was very intense. He required stitches," she added.

Directed by Quentin Tarantino, ‘Django Unchained’ is expected to release Dec 25.
