"My biggest cry in life came from the first day that I came home from the hospital because I never had to see that house again," the Jumanji star said during his appearance on the "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast. "Like there was an option of me never seeing that home again. There was an option of me never walking on that driveway again. There was an option of me never seeing my wife and my kids again."

In 1967, Mariska Hargitay lost her mother, Jayne Mansfield, and her then-boyfriend, Samuel S. Brody, following a car accident that also killed the vehicle's driver. They were traveling from Mississippi to New Orleans at the time when a truck sprayed thick white fog, obstructing the vision of the driver, Ronald B. Harrison.

"The way I've lived with loss is to lean into it. As the saying goes, the only way out is through. In my life, certainly I've tried to avoid pain, loss, feeling things," she told People decades after the accident. "But I've learned instead to real­ly lean into it, because sooner or later you have to pay the piper. ... I'm not saying it's easy, and it certainly hasn't been for me. There's been a lot of darkness. But on the other side things can be so bright."

Rachel Bilson faced a life-changing car crash in her life.

As a teen, Bilson and her then-friends had a head-on collision with a truck. The accident left her in a coma for a few days, and it also broke her relationship with the "wrong crowd" and her then "unbefitting boyfriend."

"I probably shouldn't have been hanging out with, pretending to drink beer and acting cool. They were older than me, my brother's friends, so I can blame him," Bilson told PopSugar.

"It was determined the primary cause of the traffic collision was speed and alcohol was not a factor," the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Bureau said in a press release at the time. "Mr. Disick suffered minor, non-life-threatening injuries and declined medical treatment. He was picked up from the scene by family members and his vehicle was towed away per his request."
