[Blind Gossip] Here’s a story about a famous actor who wound up with a red carpet injury that left him unable to walk!
The doctor for the Academy Awards, George Gauthier, declines to name the actor, but says that he starred in Marvel films.
From Daily Mail:
He was an older actor and starred in the Marvel films and had a knee condition. He was on the red carpet with hundreds of photographers and live TV, but his knee cap slipped and caused his leg to go rigid and lock. He couldn’t bend the leg. Imagine being on the red carpet and having to walk like a pirate with a peg leg?
His knee cap had slipped to the outside of his leg and I had to push it back. The actor had to smile and wave even though he could barely walk.
At one point Dr. Gauthier sat the actor down on the red carpet, did some manipulation to get the knee cap in and centered again.
He was up and walking within five minutes.
