Mena's Concert Scare
It's a good bet that you'll probably never again see American Beauty

The actress says she feared for her life while standing among the band's raucous fans at a recent concert in Toronto. Suvari, who at the time was up in the Great White North shooting Loser, says she wasn't sure she'd make it back alive to the set of the upcoming film.
"The whole time I was thinking, 'I don't want to die,' " she tells TV Guide Online. "It's really hard-core. It's crazy, like girls with their tops off, like in the mosh pit.
"I was just so naive, I was like, 'Oh, my God, what are they doing? Ahhh!' " she recalls. "We went around like the back way and there was all these security guys on their walkies and they were like, 'Yeah, some girl just got a pen in the neck.' "
Suvari describes herself as a "dork" who had only been to one concert prior to her Limp Bizkit experience. And what concert was that, you ask?
"You don't want to know ? it's gay," says a red-faced Suvari, before finally fessing up to Duran Duran. "That was like the only one that I'd been to. I get intimidated when there's a lot of people. I get kind of claustrophobic, I guess."
