Arnold Schwarzenegger shows off bloody 'Last Stand' injury
Arnold Schwarzenegger suffered a wee mishap Thursday on the New Mexico set of his big-screen comeback, "The Last Stand," and thoughtfully tweeted a picture of the aftermath.
The former California governor sent his 2.1 million followers a smiling photo of himself with a bleeding gash down the middle of his forehead. "Got a little banged up on set today," he wrote. "Thanks to the medical staff who got me back in action an hour later!"
Schwarzenegger's fans expressed concern, with at least one asking, "Is it a tumor?" (Please see "Kindergarten Cop" for clarification.) There's no word on what exactly caused Schwarzenegger's injury.
The movie, directed by Jee-Woon Kim ("I Saw the Devil") and also starring Forest Whitaker, Rodrigo Santoro and Johnny Knoxville, is about a small-town sheriff doing battle against a drug cartel. It's the first Hollywood production for the South Korean Jee-Woon Kim, and Schwarzenegger's first major role since leaving the California governor's office in January, and getting left by his wife Maria Shriver earlier this year.
Schwarzenegger also has a supporting role coming up in "The Expendables 2."
