Los Angeles: Actor-director Eli Roth was seen sporting a bandaged finger after he was bitten by an octopus during a break in Hawaii.

The `Inglourious Basterds` star was previously forced to undergo surgery after he was stung by deadly sea urchins while on vacation in Mexico in 2009, reported TMZ.

Roth set out on a sea scooter expedition, but the `Hostel` director was left in agony following an encounter with an octopus.

The creature bit a finger on his right hand, which bled for hours, and now he has to keep the wound covered until it heals.
