The Kelly Clarkson Show brought Campbell on as a guest. Naturally, host Kelly Clarkson interviewed her about the newest Scream installment. However, she also asked Campbell about a previous bear attack encounter. The actor was more than happy to share the story that understandably shocked Clarkson.

Campell’s close call with a bear happened on a movie set years before she starred in big movies such as Scream and Wild Things. She was only 17 years old at the time and desperately wanted to impress the cast and crew.

“I was playing this role where she’s ‘one with the animals’ and there was a scene where I was getting chased by a bear,” Campbell said. “They brought this bear on set and they first gave me this big bottle of Coke to feed it. [After feeding it], they said dip your hand in honey and just run. And when you get to the tree over there, turn your hand out and feed the bear.”

Campbell continued: “I dipped my hand in honey and I run to this rock, and I turn around and I put my hand out and the bear is not slowing down and he’s not coming for my hand. He grabs me by the leg and he pulls me through the forest.”

“My mother was visiting set and she’s screaming,” Campbell said. “The whole crew is frozen because nobody can believe what’s happening. All I can think to say is, ‘He’s biting me,’ like it’s not obvious.”
