Hilary Duff dropped a scorpion down her trousers in her new movie.
The actress had the "scary" encounter with the arachnid while shooting 'War, Inc' after deciding not to use a fake one.
She is quoted as saying: "We did it about four times. They were like, 'We have a fake one here but it looks terrible.' And I was like, 'I've done this for the movie, and this and this and this' - I can't back out now. I've got to go for it. All the guys on set were telling me that they would never do this.
"I had a pair of pants on that was a little bigger than my normal size so I could get some space between my body and the pants and try and drop it in.
"A couple of times it went all the way down to the floor, you know, and then sometimes it got stuck and I had to shake it out which was really scary."
Director Josh Seftel admitted he was "terrified" by the scorpion and praised the 20-year-old 'Lizzie Maguire' star for her bravery.
He said: "It was so brave and bold and smart of her to do that. I loved that she embraced it."
