    Lightbulb What is the meaning of "Her gut is broken"?

    Hey guys, I was watching a movie and at the beginning something terrible happened to a girl and then her friend who was talking about her just said: "Her gut is broken, we have know idea what she's thinking."

    Does it mean that she's in a bad situation or something?

    Thank you in advance.

    It doesn't mean anything to me. Are you sure about "gut"?

    The expression means nothing to me.

    It sounds like her friend is mixing up 'She is gutted' and 'Her heart is broken'.

    'Buddy' is not normally an appropriate way to address somebody.

    There is an expression "gut feeling" which can be used for intuition. Perhaps the person is saying that her "gut feeling" was wrong, as if her gut was broken.
