10. Did Alex Wolff dislocate his jaw in Hereditary?
While Alex Wolff didn’t dislocate his jaw in Hereditary’s classroom scene, he did sustain a pretty gnarly physical injury. Speaking to the Wrap, Alex said that he wanted to actually do it for real, but Ari Aster said no. A ‘soft cushion desk’ was brought in but it wasn’t as soft as Alex thought it would be. “I remember after, I was just panting, my voice is gone, blood is dripping down everywhere — real blood gushing down my knee because I slammed it against a chair. I couldn’t move my arm."
