Ryan Phillippe Shared a Hospital Selfie on Instagram After Injuring His Leg
Talk about a terrible weekend. It’s rare that celebs share anything but their best lives on social media, but for Ryan Phillippe, this weekend showed a different side of the actor. On Sunday, Phillippe shared news via his Twitter and Instagram that he injured his leg and was hospitalized, leaving fans wishing him well.
Sharing a photo from a hospital bed with his right leg wrapped up and pinned, Phillippe said, “I’m going to be ok & i appreciate your concern.” A few hours later, the star took to his Twitter account to share his feelings on being laid up, saying, “This Sucks.”
While we don’t know what caused the Shooter star to wind up in the hospital, he’s known to do his own stunts while filming the action show, which is set to premiere its second season tomorrow, July 18.
Back in 2016, he told Collider, “I’ve got that mentality that I think is akin to what a soldier can have, which is that focus of, ‘I’m going to do this.’ I was determined. I knew I’d be banged up ‘cause I’m 42 years old now. I’m not a kid anymore. But I was approaching it like a football season, and I’d heal up after we finished.”
