When George Clooney slammed his hand in a car door last month in Italy, his local driver had a little trouble figuring out where to take him, the actor admits.

“He drives me into town, and he takes me to a dentist. Dentist’s chair, dentist’s lamp, everything,” Clooney recalls, according to Yahoo! News. “The guy comes in, pulls the dentist’s lamp down onto my hand. He starts pulling on my fingers, which really hurts. At last he says, ‘Hmm, I think it’s broken.’ I’m saying, ‘Is there a real doctor anywhere in here?’” Clooney’s driver eventually took him across the border to Switzerland for treatment.
