Rose McGowan said a stunt gone wrong during her latest flick caused her to lose the use of her arm. 

The brunette stunner said she was hospitalized and needed surgery for nerve damage she suffered from doing her own stunts on her latest film "Red Sonja" and was forced to halt production of the flick, according to Fox News

"I had wrist and elbow surgery and they took part of my elbow out," McGowan told Fox News. "I had really bad nerve damage from doing stunts. I do a lot of my own stunts."

McGowan, 36, said she will need extensive rehab to get her arm usage back to normal.

"I could no longer use my arm, but now I can hold a fork and drive so we're working our way up. It'll probably be another six months of rehab, but it's the price you pay for being really limber and being able to do back flips! "

McGowan plays a young girl described as a she-devil who seeks revenge after her family is taken away from her in the comic-book adaptation "Red Sonja."
