Hollywood actor Anthony Anderson recently shared an update on his health following a mishap on a movie set that led to his hospitalization. The 53-year-old actor, known for his vibrant spirit, took to Instagram this Thursday to share his experience, accompanied by a cheerful photo of himself on a hospital gurney.
In a light-hearted post, Anderson revealed that he had been involved in a stunt for a movie that didn't go as planned, leading to an overnight stay in the emergency room. "Caught in a tussle with two adversaries and a chair on set, it turns out I was the underdog," Anderson quipped.
The actor humorously conceded the need for a stunt double, admitting that the years have taken their toll on his physical resilience. Despite the scare, Anderson reassured fans that serious injury was averted. Following thorough medical examinations, including a CT scan and X-rays, doctors confirmed that there were no fractures or breaks, just a significant bruise on his back.
Anderson couldn't resist a jest at the chair's expense, declaring it the worse for wear after their encounter. The "Black-ish" star continued to share his experience in a subsequent post featuring the infamous chair, humorously personifying it as his formidable opponent from the previous night.
Anderson's narrative not only highlighted his ordeal but also his unbreakable spirit.
