Kirk Douglas recovering from broken footMay 1st, 2009 - 1:18 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 1 (ANI): Legendary actor Kirk Douglas has injured his foot after he took a tumble at his California mansion.
Recently, the 92-year-old star fell in his Beverly Hills home, but refused to see a doctor until the next day.
However, after consulting medics, he was diagnosed with a broken bone in his foot.
And now, Kirk-Michael Douglas’ father-has been fitted with a plaster cast and been advised to rest for four weeks.
But writing on his MySpace.com blog, the veteran actor insists the accident wasn’t as serious as it sounds.
“I must be clumsy. I was sitting on a chair dictating to my assistant Grace, I got up out of the chair, stumbled and fell against the wall. My foot was painful but I thought it would go away,” The Daily Star quoted him as saying.
He added: “The next day it got worse and my wife made me see a doctor. I was surprised to learn that I broke a bone in my foot and now I have to wear a heavy boot for a month!” (ANI)
