Russell Crowe is currently promoting their new action thriller film Land of Bad, starring Liam Hemsworth, Luke Hemsworth, Ricky Whittle, and Milo Ventimiglia.

in a recent conversation people, The actor revealed that he once worked during the last month of shooting a movie with both legs broken.

The “minor accident” happened in the summer of 2009 while performing a stunt for Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood. That’s when he had to jump off a pier, a heavy gate that closes vertically, found in one of the medieval fortresses used in the film.

The 59-year-old Oscar winner told the magazine: “I jumped off a castle pier onto uneven ground that was hard as a rock.” “We needed to clear the ground and fill in the pads, but we were in a hurry to complete the shoot in the fading light.”

Crowe, who was 45 when he took on the role, didn’t realize the extent of the danger until he was above the landing point and about to jump.

“There was no retreat because there were hundreds of extras around, arrows were flying, and pots were setting the castle on fire,” Crowe recalled. “I remember jumping off and thinking, ‘This is going to hurt.'”

In the final seconds, Qrow remembered wanting to land on the balls of his feet to cushion the impact.

“It felt like electric shocks were going through my body,” he said of his reaction to the pain, but ultimately he knew he had to persevere no matter the injury.

“We were shooting a big movie, so you just struggle to get by, but the last month of that job was extremely difficult,” the actor said. “There were a few weeks where I had a hard time even walking.”

Crowe said, “I never talked to production about my injury, and I never took time off because of it. I just kept going to work.”

About 10 years later, Crowe began experiencing “very strange pains” in her lower legs, prompting her to seek medical attention.

The Gladiators star didn’t think it was anything serious and thought it was likely a result of exercise and lack of sun after “having a long winter in New York City.”

So when the doctor asked him, “When did you break your leg?” he was completely stunned. Eventually, doctors discovered through X-rays that both shin bones had evidence of fractures.

Crowe did not hesitate to perform his own stunts in a scene where he had to jump from around a hanging door, a heavy vertical gate found in one of the medieval fortresses used in the film.

The Wellington, New Zealand, native, who grew up primarily in Sydney, Australia, said he had difficulty even walking during the final month of filming “Robin Hood.”

Attempting to remind Crowe when the injury occurred, he tells Crowe that an x-ray showed it was about 10 years ago.

When I heard about this time slot, I immediately thought of his stunt jumping off a pier on the set of Robin Hood.

“Apparently I completed the film with both legs broken,” he said confidently. “It’s all about the art. No casts, no splints, no painkillers, I just kept working and it healed itself over time.”

Given that he ended up taking a year off from work after the Robin Hood shooting, Crowe must have subconsciously known at the time that something was physically wrong. He did not return until he signed on to play Kryptonian scientist Jor-El, the biological father of Kal-El (Superman), in Man of Steel, which was filmed in the summer of 2011.

“Looking back, it’s clear that something went wrong,” the Academy Award winner said. “Becoming the Kryptonian father of Superman required six months of incredibly intense physical training. Between the holidays and that training, the situation took care of itself.”

Robin Hood, directed by Scott from a script by Brian Helgeland, was a bit of a disappointment, grossing $321.7 million worldwide against a budget of approximately $155 million to $237 million. It was thought that it was.

However, some critics argued that the real financial setback for the production was not the lack of financial profit, but rather the fact that it went over budget.
