Miranda Cosgrove revealed she was left with a “strange” hole in her leg following surgery she had for a broken ankle sustained in a 2011 bus crash.

“It was so strange, because when I woke up, I had a cast on, like, a soft cast, and then later I went back and they removed it and then that’s when I noticed the hole,” the “School of Rock” actress explained on the “HypochondriActor” podcast recently.

She continued, “I was asking questions like, ‘What’s this? What’s that?’ And then I was like, ‘Wait, why is there a hole in my leg?’ So, they were like, ‘Oh, we didn’t do that.’”

The “iCarly” star sustained the injury when her tour bus crashed in Illinois.

The “Despicable Me” voice actress, 28, said the hole was located about five inches above her ankle and looked like “somebody punctured through completely and cut a hole.”

The hole ultimately healed on its own, scabbing over and leaving her with no pain. It did, however, leave her with more questions than answers.

“The physical therapist told me sometimes they have to drain blood from your foot during the surgery, and that they have to put a hole to fix that,” she said.

“I just picture these surgeons, while you’re under,” co-host Sean Hayes joked. “Standing next to each other — like, a room full of, like, eight people surrounding your body —while they’re working on your ankle, while you’re under anesthesia going, ‘Hey, did you? Did you make that?’ ‘No, I didn’t. I didn’t make that. Did you?’ ‘No, I didn’t.’”

The “iCarly” star’s tour bus was involved in an accident in Illinois in August 2011, her publicist confirmed at the time.

“At this time, we are told everyone will be fine,” Cosgrove’s publicist said. “Because of this, her tour is postponed until further notice.”

Later that month, Cosgrove tweeted, “Been in the hospital for the last few days. I had a successful surgery. I’m so happy to be heading home.”
