Anderson described what led to him being rushed to the emergency room.

“Me against two goons and a chair! Guess who didn’t win!” he wrote.

He went on to jokingly propose a slight change in how he will approach certain acting scenes in the future.

“Who needs a stuntman? Me that’s who! I’m not as young as I used to be!” the famous actor wrote.

The actor was checked out by medical staff and it was determined that his injuries were not as bad as suspected, although it was clear he did have a wound that required some attention.

“CT scan and X-rays showed nothing fractured or broken in my back just a deep contusion.”

Anderson told fans he was whacked by a chair during filming.
