During recent filming for the new Sherlock Holmes movie, Robert Downey Jr. was injured so badly that he was said to be "drooling blood."
Apparently, while they were filming a fight scene, Robert was injured by Robert Mailleta, a 350 lb extra. The blow was so sever that he was knocked right off his feet. Luckily, an on-set nurse was able to stitch up the inside of his mouth and get him ready for action again.
A source on set said: "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."
He does sound like a good sport and we wish him a speedy recovery.
