London: Hollywood actor Aaron Eckhart refused to halt filming when he broke his arm during the making of new movie `Battle: Los Angeles` as he wanted the painful moment to be caught on camera.

The 42-year-old actor slipped and fell while trying to pull off an ill-advised stunt, and even though he knew he had snapped a bone, he put up with the pain and carried on acting, reported Contactmusic.

Eckhart, who didn`t show the broken arm to a doctor until after the movie had wrapped, admitted he is glad the incident made it into the final cut of the film.

"I heard it break and I said to the director, `Don`t cut,` and finished the scene. It`s actually in the movie. I finished the movie, never missed a minute of work, I went to the hospital two days later, never had a cast on it," he said.
