Weird Adventures of Werner Herzog

Grizzly Man (among many many other films) director Werner Herzog has been up to some odd things. So he was apparently shot with an airgun during a recent interview. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any collaborating articles on this. From the same source we learn that Herzog helped Joaquin Phoenix when he wrecked his car.

The actor says, “I remember this knocking on the passenger window. There was this German voice saying, ‘Just relax.’ There’s the airbag, I can’t see and I’m saying, ‘I’m fine. I am relaxed. Finally, I rolled down the window and this head pops inside. And he said, ‘No, you’re not.’

Of course, if this stuff were in a Herzog documentary, I would bet on it being made-up.
