London, (ANI): Actress Brooke Shields has revealed that she broke
her hand while practicing for her part as an all-singing,
all-dancing waitress last month in the Los Angeles stage adaptation
of the Steve Martin film Leap of Faith.
"I broke my hand during rehearsal. I play a waitress, that
screams danger, right?" the Daily Star quoted her as saying.
"There's a moment where I kick over a chair and do this whole dance
number and it was a very heavy, heavy chair, so it kind of bent my
finger over, all the way back," she said.
However, Shields said that she didn't seek medical attention
until weeks after the accident because she didn"t want to be
considered high maintenance for complaining about the pain.
“I don't like being high maintenance so I was like, 'I'm just
going to be fine with it, I'm fine,'" she said. "So I was walking
around with it for about two or three weeks in excruciating pain
because I didn't want to be high maintenance. So I finally went in
(to hospital for treatment) and I just got the cast off today," she
