MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL had to limp down the red carpet at Monday’s (14Jul08) THE DARK KNIGHT premiere, after breaking her toe.
The actress, who stars opposite Christian Bale and the late Heath Ledger in the new Batman movie, suffered the fracture after whacking her foot against some furniture at home.
She blames the accident on her nerves ahead of the film’s big release, telling TV talk show host David Letterman on Wednesday (16Jul08), “I’m like this indie actress, and I have this big movie, and all of a sudden I have a broken toe. I think it was because I was nervous about all this stuff. This big, huge movie all of a sudden, and I just walked across the room and I broke my toe.”
But the star reveals she was too stunned to feel any pain from the break, musing: “I guess it hurt. My boyfriend (actor Peter Sarsgaard) was impressed with how broken it was.”
