Dolph Lundgren got an unwelcome surprise on a recent flight that he was sharing with one of the stars of Dirty Sanchez, Matthew Pritchard.
Pritchard is known for his hard-partying lifestyle, and after taking Xanax and mixing it with alcohol, he claims that he blacked out, removed all his clothes, and proceeded to pee on the Rocky IV star’s feet.
In Pritchard’s own words.
“I started running up and down the flight naked and proceeded to pee on Dolph Lundgren’s feet. I don’t know why I wasn’t arrested at the airport.”
(Seriously, good point.)
Now hearing that, you’re probably thinking that Dolph went all Ivan Drago on Pritchard and pounded him into a wet spot. But apparently, the real Dolph Lundgren is a heck of a lot nicer than the fake one.
While the actor has not commented publicly about the incident that was reported by outlets like Metro U.K., Pritchard said that he did shake his hand and told him “not to worry about it.”
Dolph Lundgren is a tough guy, and that’s not just the movies talking. He probably could have killed Pritchard with his bare hands (and one tied behind his back), but he chose to let it go.
In addition to his film credentials as the toughest of Rocky’s opponents, he also handled himself pretty well in a decision loss against former UFC champ Oleg Taktarov.
But considering that this is what he was up against, I can see how he may not have wanted to get his hands dirty.
If you want to see more of Dolph Lundgren, the good news is that his foray into The Expendables series has revived his film career.
This year he has four films releasing, including A Man Will Rise, War Pigs, Shark Lake, and Malchishnik.
And next year, you can catch him in The Good, the Bad, and the Dead, Riot, Don’t Kill It, and Hail, Caesar!
The latter film — Hail, Caesar! — is probably the highest profile of his upcoming vehicles since it’s directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, and it’ll give him the chance to share screen time with George Clooney, Channing Tatum, and Scarlett Johansson. (Or maybe that should be the other way around.)
As for the Pritchard peeing incident, what do you think, readers? Should Dolph Lundgren have pounded the man into oblivion, or did he handle it the way he should have? Sound off in the comments section.
