Cobie Smulders Walked on Broken Leg for a Day
Cobie Smulders, star actress in The Avengers, reveals she suffered the clumsy incident a day before she was due to head to Georgia to film TV movie Confirmation, and it was only when she arrived on location that the new mom realized the seriousness of her injury.
She says, “I just fell in my apartment and it was so silly.” “I was leaving the next day to go shoot a movie in Savannah and the smart me decided to strap my newborn on to my chest and go to Savannah. I didn’t know it was broken. It was like a solid day of walking, solid day of re-breaking my bone.” Smulders was signed to star as lawyer Harriet Grant opposite Kerry Washington in the Anita Hill biopic for America’s HBO network, but she was subsequently replaced by Salt actress Zoe Lister Jones after pulling out of the film. Catch Smulders tonight on The Late Night Show – as advertised in her tweet from today, July 27, 2015.
Also, I will be on @latelateshow tonight. With men who will make me laugh so hard I hope to forget my inability to walk and carry objects.— Cobie Smulders (@CobieSmulders) July 23, 2015
