Sam Taylor Johnson, 55, and husband Aaron, 32, attend the Locarno Film Festival… as the actor reveals he was hospitalized while filming the Bullet Train after Brad Pitt’s fight scene

Sam Taylor Johnson and her husband Aaron arrived on Wednesday at the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland – where he was honored with an ‘excellence’ award.

The director, 55, and her actor beau, 32, attended the red carpet after the Bullet Train star revealed he was hospitalized while filming for the movie.

Aaron passed out after injuring his hand during a fight scene with Brad Pitt, due to low blood sugar after going on a “crazy keto diet” to get skinny for the role.

He told Variety: ‘We were in a battle sequence and I get dropped across the room. And that one sharp bit of the corner where there was no padding took a piece out of my hand. I literally went wham, passed out.

“Then I came back and thought, ‘Should we go again?’ and they said, “No, no, no. You need to get stitched in the hospital.” So then I spent the night in the hospital.’

Aaron admitted he knew signing up for a movie directed by stunt professional David Leitch would mean getting a few bumps and bruises along the way.
