Matt Bomer was not about to let something as pesky as a broken leg get in the way of his skiing.
The “Papi Chulo” star sat down for a chat with Ellen DeGeneres on Monday’s episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”. Bomer, 41, reflected on how he snapped his leg during a family ski trip.
“I was trying to get out of the way of some little kids in front of me and my leg went the wrong way,” Bomer said. “Ironically, it was the first time I’d ever taken lessons and I broke my leg.” That was not about to stop him. “My husband [Simon Halls] and one of our 11-year-olds were waiting at the bottom of the hill and I was like, ‘I’m not going down on that red toboggan,'” he explained.
“My pride got in the way and I didn’t want to scare them,” he continued. “They had skied ahead of me and they were down there and I was like, ‘What do I do?!’ And so I just got back on the ski with a broken leg and skied down the hill with a broken leg.”
Upon arriving at the bottom of the slope, “I looked at my husband and went, ‘I’m injured, I’m injured.’ And he knew.”
Bomer stars in the Irish-American comedy-drama “Papi Chulo”. It premiered at the 2018 Toronto Film Festival ahead of its June 7 theatrical premiere.
