Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. is still recovering from a dog attack on the set of his new movie Snow Dogs (2002). The Jerry Maguire (1996) star went on location to icy Alaska for the Disney movie - about a New Yorker who inherits a team of racing husky dogs - but it wasn't the cold temperatures that the actor found most unpleasant.
The Oscar-winner says, "They put these meat packets in the pockets of this red jacket and teased the dogs for a week with this jacket. Then they put the jacket on me with all this padding and then I had to run and the dogs rip at the jacket and, of course, they found the one spot on my butt that didn't have padding on. " (KL/WNV/CPT)
