Bam Margera of “Jackass 3D” on broken bones, health insurance, and human waste

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: How does Bam Margera know that he’s concluded work on the latest “Jackass” feature?

He has at least two broken bones.

“The way that I look at it is this. Filming ‘Jackass,’ you’re going to wind up with at least two broken bones,” Margera told us during a recent interview to help promote the new film. “You don’t know when it’s going to be, but you know it’s going to happen. The only way you can look at it is to say a broken bone heals, so screw it.”

Margera joins Johnny Knoxville, a suddenly sober Steve-O, and the savage pranksters of “Jackass” for the group’s third feature-length film … their first in 3D. The only film Margera managed to see in 3D prior to filming “Jackass” was James Cameron’s Oscar-winning “Avatar.” He said the films can’t be compared.

“This is the exact opposite of ‘Avatar,’ you know? There’s no CGI, there are no special effects,” Margera said. “You are going to see a lot of poop, pee and barf coming right at your face.”

And which bones did Margera sacrifice for the good of this latest film?

“I broke my clavicle. I had three broken ribs. I had a busted knee cap and a broken foot,” Bam boasted.

There’s no way this guy can have health insurance, right? Guess again.

“My dad handles all of that, but I actually have like a fast-track plan in Pennsylvania because I’m at the hospital so much that they’re like, ‘Bam’s back,’” he said with a chuckle. “They let me skip the waiting. I go right in and they figure out what I did again.”

Margera turned 31 last month. He said he often feels three times his natural age.

“It all really depends on what skit or stunt that I do,” he said. “But there are times when I’ll wake up in the morning and I honestly feel like I’m 80.”

Not that he plans to slow down any time soon.

“I’ll just keep going until I can’t anymore.”

“Jackass 3D” opens everywhere on Friday, Oct. 15.
