Charlize Theron Tore Ligament Filming Stunts for Netflix's 'The Old Guard' & Waited 2 Months to Get Treatment!

Charlize Theron‘s film The Old Guard hits Netflix on Friday and we dug up an old interview where she revealed what happened during one of the stunts she filmed!

“This is so stupid. I did an action movie [The Old Guard] and I tore the ligament off the bone fighting,” Charlize said during a Jimmy Kimmel Live interview back in October. “I messed up my elbow, as well.”

Initially, Charlize walked around with the injury for two months before seeing a doctor. “I’ve been walking around with this injury for two months. How badass is that?” she said. “I didn’t know that it was anything. I just was like, ‘Toughen up. Come on.’ And then I was told by a doctor that it was basically just floating around and I was like, ‘Oh, that’s interesting. That’s why I’ve only been using these four fingers.’”

The Old Guard is full of stunts and it looks like Charlize did a bunch of them herself.

Get a taste of what The Old Guard is all about right here.
