Robert Downey Jr. Injured on Sherlock Holmes Set

Eeeks!

A few days ago, Robert "Sherlock" Downey Jr. got knocked out by a 350 lb extra during the filming of a fight scene. RDJ was supposedly 'drooling blood', was revived by set medics and then had his inner mouth stitched up by a nurse.

A source on the Guy Ritchie directed movie reported, “Robert was accidentally caught on the chin by a thundering hook. He went flying and was out cold. He didn’t want to go to hospital and kept trying to get up. He’s a trooper. But there have been lots of other problems too.”

One of the problems the source is probably alluding to happened on Friday.

A gas tanker blew up on set forcing Guy to shut down production for a few hours.

There's rumblings that the movie may be 'cursed'.

Hmmm….

Who could've hexed Guy's film????

    Nooooooooo!! Robert, please be careful! Fuck that curse, I ANTI curse that shit! Rob will be fine and I love him.



  8. 8

    Madonna did!
    I love her to death, but she did it!
    lol.
    Shes a witch & a bitch!



  9. 9

    Madonna? Just kidding… or not…

    They also said the 007 was cursed and many others - but like in other jobs accidents happen - cool down.

    And feel better soon Robert



  10. 10

    Madonna doesn't have to rely on the supernatural, huh. She can pay for whatever she wants. That's a more logical speculation.



  11. 11

    its not cursed they just need to get their heads straight and get some sleep and stop thinking negative about the divorce



  12. 12

    Perez,
    it so annoying that there's no news on your site this weekend… this is all old shit, you're regurgitating the Sun's news and there's like what, 6 new items in 3 days?
    WTF… glad you're enjoying your holiday, but man, not good for your fans. it sucks!

    Arthur Conan Doyle is haunting this movie for it makes Sherlock Holmes look like Charlie Chaplin…



  14. 14

    He looks he's doing Charlie Chaplin II.

  19. 19

    Tyler Durden would be proud.



  25. 25

  26. 26

    It ain't show business if you can't take a beating once in a while.



  27. 27

    FYI P-Doody, it's TROUPER , as in troupe of actors, not TROOPER.



  28. 28

  29. 29

    Perez you have been slacking.



  30. 30

    Oh - well, lets hope they don't give him Percoset!?



  31. 31

    A-Rod paid his grandmother a hefty fee, to use Santeria on Guy. This is true. I have sources in low places…



  32. 32

    Perez…
    Update!!



  33. 33

    I am extremely happy for Robert Downey, Jr. and his newfound success. I survived having an entire right lung removed due to cancer from smoking and a complete liver transplant from alcoholic chirrosis. I was only 32 with the lung cancer and only 35 with the liver transplant. Yes, it can happen to you that young. I am so happy he got his like on the straight and narrow. I hope he keeps it that way. And to anyone reading this post, smoking is not cool or acceptable at all. Drink only in extreme moderation. Because if you don't think you can get really, really sick at a young age, oh yes you can.



  34. 34

    MADONNA!!!



  35. 35

    He's looking good… totally alert…. with it.



  36. 36

    I've loved RDJ since the 80's - he's as HOT as ever! I hope he's ok….and doesn't need any pain relievers. He is way too much of a talent to let this get him down. And I don't believe in a "Guy Ritchie curse"…it will be fine and I will go and see this movie the day it comes out - can't wait!



  60. 60

    he has that creepy guy look



  61. 61

    he still hot



  62. 62

    Imagine having to listen to Guy's annoying British accent day in & day out. Robert probably passed out from a dramamine overdose having to listen to that sea-sickening accent!



  63. 63

    350lb extra…is an ex wwf wrestler known as kurrgan… and if that doesnt help he was the ugly giant that got his head chopped off in 300!
