Literally, he grabbed the hot barrel of a gun that had just shot 30 rounds during one of Tony Montana's violent scenes.
"My hand stuck to that sucker," the 71-year-old actor recalled. He couldn't work for two weeks.
Pacino relayed the experience during a discussion with Scarface co-stars Steven Bauer, Robert Loggia and F. Murray Abraham and producer Martin Bregman at a party in Los Angeles on Tuesday heralding the film's Blu-ray release.
Part of the charm of the film, Pacino said, is that it wasn't initially a hit.
"It's one of my favourites because of its whole evolution," he said. "It (was) sort of eviscerated after it opened by the press. ... Nobody was fond of it, except it had good audience participation."
