Brooke Shields, 55, posted a hospital gown Instagram video showing the actress, who has danced on Broadway, taking extremely tentative steps with metal crutches, non-slip socks visible on her feet.
"Broke my femur. Beginning to mend," actress Brooke Shields wrote on social media. "No matter what your challenge is, make a positive choice, for yourself, to move forward. #BeginningisNow."
Brooke Shields gave no indication what caused the injury to her femur, or thigh bone, the largest bone in the human body. Nor did she give a timetable for the injury and recovery. "So sorry! Courage...it's in your blood. Sending love," actress Glenn Close commented on the Instagram post.
"I’m so sorry, let me know how you’re doing," wrote Sharon Stone, who offered to bring over food. "So glad I got to see you baby you looked so well and beautiful and I know this is a tough one," wrote model Helena Christensen.
