59-year-old Actor Russell Crowe recently revealed during an interview with People magazine that he didn’t realize he had fractured his leg a decade ago while he was filming the 2010 film Robin Hood.

Initially, Oscar winner Crowe believed that he had suffered a minor injury to his legs while performing a stunt on the set and that it was a minor accident.

Russell Crowe Said:-

“I jumped off a castle portcullis onto rock-hard uneven ground,” “We should have prepped the ground and buried a pad but we were in a rush to get the shot done in the fading light.”

He recalled being worried about arranging the moments before performing a stunt, and he said:-

“With hundreds of extras around, arrows flying and burn pots setting the castle on fire, there was no pulling out,” “As I jumped, I remember thinking, ‘This is going to hurt.’ “

A New Zealand native explained that Russell was trying to land on the balls of his feet to better absorb shock, while Crowe recalled that his heels were the first to hit the ground when he landed the stunt. He further added:-

“It was like an electric shock bursting up through my body,”

“We were shooting a big movie, so you just struggle through, but the last month of that job was very tricky. There was a number of weeks where even walking was a challenge.”

“never discussed the injury with production, never took a day off because of it, I just kept going to work.”

When actor Russell Crowe felt “very strange pain” in his lower legs a decade later, he went to a doctor for an MRI; he explained further:-

“I thought it was nothing serious,” “After working through a long New York winter, my body was just missing exercise and sunshine.”

The doctor was surprised to see his X-ray, Crowe continued talking about what the doctor told him when he went to a doctor for an MRI-

“When did you break your legs?” “Apparently he could see the remnants of fractures in both shin bones,” “To jog my memory he said, ‘Would have been maybe 10 years ago?'”

After asking the doctor’s question, he remembered jumping from the portcullis on the Robin Hood set and he kept saying:-

“Apparently I finished that movie with two broken legs,” he adds. “All for art. No cast, no splints, no painkillers, just kept going to work and over time they healed themselves.”

“In retrospect I obviously knew something was wrong,” “To be the Kryptonian father of Superman was six months of incredibly intense physical training. Between the time off and that training, things fixed themselves.”

After the filming of this film he took a year off.
