On the US talk show Late Night With Seth Meyers, Butler explained that in the scene he pretended to be investigating a malfunctioning plane before it could take off.

“There’s something in the wheel, so it’s a brake,” he said.

“Now I’m going to put my hand between those two wheels and pretend I know what I’m doing in there, you know?”

He said that every time he pulled his hands out from between the wheels, they were covered in blood and green liquid.

“And I don’t know what that green liquid is,” he added.

The intensity of the scene made Butler sweat, so he started rubbing his face.

“All of a sudden it’s in my throat, it’s in my mouth, it’s in my nose, it’s in my eyes,” he said.

“It burns my face, and I mean it burns.

“And it turns out to be essentially phosphoric acid.”

Butler said pilots who were on set as consultants began yelling “No!” as he rubbed his face.

“So I’m like a living burn,” he said.

The actor received treatment on set but said his face burned “for hours”.

“It was intense and it actually burned for hours, but it was great for the scene,” he said.

Butler previously spoke about COVID protocols on set, prompting Meyers to quip: “There were probably 10 people making sure nobody gave each other COVID and not one person stopping you from putting acid on your face lubricate.”

Butler said the burning sensation eventually subsided with no lasting ill effects.

It’s not the first time the actor – whose films include 300, Olympus Has Fallen, The Bounty Hunter and Gods of Egypt – has suffered an injury during filming.

In 2011, Butler was rescued after a surfing accident in Northern California.

He was dragged underwater and dragged over a rocky reef by a large group of waves while filming the surf film Of Men and Mavericks.

He was taken to a local hospital but was not seriously injured.

The actor was also involved in a motorcycle accident in 2017, but this time not during filming.

He crashed his bike after reportedly going off the road in Los Angeles and suffered minor cuts and bruises.

Butler’s latest film Plane opens in Australian cinemas on January 26th.
