Robert Downey Jr Injured on Set of “Iron Man 3″
Robert Downey Jr has been injured on the set of Iron Man 3. CBS News reports that the actor, 47, hurt his ankle, causing production to be halted temporarily.
Marvel Studios explained the situation in a statement: “Robert Downey Jr. sustained an ankle injury on the set of Iron Man 3 in Wilmington, N.C., while performing a stunt. There will be a short delay in the production schedule while he recuperates.”
A rep for RDJ says he’ll be fine, adding that the movie’s team is waiting to see how long it will take him to recover. Iron Man 3 also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall and Guy Pearce, and is expected to hit theaters May 3, 2013.
The Big Bang Theory‘s Mayim Bialik was also injured recently, but not on set; her car was struck when she was driving on Hollywood Boulevard. Original reports said that she might lose a finger, but Mayim had her husband tweet that she’s going to be keeping all her digits.
Let’s hope this isn’t a Rule-Of-Threes situation!
