Shortly after, she met with the press in connection with the premiere of “Hajila, We're in the Film Business,” where she mostly walked around wearing sunglasses. But when I took them off, no visible trace of the bike accident was found.

-Blåveisen, he's completely gone, that guy. No, I didn't wear makeup to make it look like that either. I'm completely normal, she told Se og Hør at the time.

Skavlan told Dagbladet Magasinet that the blue route came about because she had three options: she could bike between the tram tracks, on the sidewalk or on cobblestones and dirt.

She chose the first.

-What was it like seeing the Blue Road in print, Jenny?

– I could have chosen not to come to the photo shoot with the magazine, it was really up to me. But I've seen worse, she answered at the time.

Skavelan's husband Thomas “Finger'n” Gullestad (43) has also not been so lucky in the past. In contrast, not with a bicycle, but with a skateboard.

In the 2018 accident, Gullestad broke his ankle so badly he had to have surgery in the middle of Christmas.

– It was my crisis of 40 years: I started skating. I really broke my ankle – instantly. It was so terrible, I can't talk about it at once, Gullestad previously told Se og Hør.

-There were only trainees at work, and they didn't understand much about pain relief. He added that the anesthesia after the operation began to wear off, and they did not give me the strong medications I needed.
