There are a number of things that can go wrong on set. Clothing malfunctions? We’ve seen that more times than we can count. Cue card mishaps? Yup, that’s happened before.

All this to say, accidents happen. During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Heidi Klum, 50, recounted the time she fell on the set of America’s Got Talent, and by the looks of it, she handled it like a total pro.

In a new clip shared on the late night show’s Instagram page, Klum walks over to the judge’s panel while holding hands with Mel B. In a matter of seconds, the supermodel takes a hard fall to the ground, which garners a huge gasp from the audience. Fellow AGT judge Howie Mandel rushes over to her and asks, “Are you okay?” 

Klum responds with a smile, “Yeah.” Then, she swiftly jumps up, fixes her dress and throws her hands in the air, reassuring everyone that she is okay. After watching the footage, Fallon seemed shocked, saying, “That’s a fall. Oh my god!” 

While making light of the incident, Klum jokingly added, “I know! Did you hear Mel? She was like, ‘You almost pulled me down.’ She told me that four times. Simon [Cowell] just leaned over to me and he’s like, ‘Make more of it.’”

She continued, “But it’s so funny, the schadenfreude that happens, you know, the word when someone falls, everyone [screams]. It’s just funny.”

During the fall, Klum scratched her leg and elbow. The Queen of Halloween went on to tell Fallon how she had to get the wound super glued shut. “It’s amazing. They put this super glue in your wound and it just [glues shut] with like a little butterfly thing on it,” she explained.

Glad to hear you’re okay, Heidi.
