‘I now am bionic’: Carla Gugino says she looked like Robocop after breaking her wrist
Carla Gugino opened up about suffering a broken wrist in the Dominican Republic while making the film Leopard Skin earlier on in the year.
‘I went on this amazing hike and I was coming down a hill and I broke my wrist really badly,’ the 49-year-old actress told Variety Monday. ‘I broke all the bones all the way across and then had a bunch of complications because I had to have a bonesetter on.’
The Sarasota, Florida native described the medical contraption she was required to wear for healing.

‘It made me look like RoboCop, but it was a massive metal thing that was literally drilled into my bones that I had to have on for seven weeks,’ Gugino said.
Gugino said the injury ‘didn’t heal because the bone was pulled too far apart, so I had to have a second surgery seven weeks ago,’ adding, ‘I now am bionic.’
Gugino in the interview detailed her new project Gunpowder Milkshake, a Netflix film in which she plays an assassin – as part of a group that includes Angela Bassett, Lena Headey, Karen Gillan and Michelle Yeoh – in mission to save the life of a real girl.
The Watchmen actress said that the ensemble cast ‘definitely was absolutely a big part of the lore to do it.

‘None of the women had ever worked with each other,’ she said. ‘It was like, “Wow, this a group of amazing women who are going to come together to kind of play.”‘
Gugino added: ‘One of the things I found that, besides this being a hugely entertaining film, is also there is this sense of found family.’
Gugino told the publication that she thinks the Spy Kids film anthology which she starred in, from director Robert Rodriguez, will likely end at four films.
‘You know, I think Robert has moved on,’ she said. ‘I actually just saw him recently and we always want to collaborate. I think he did four of them and that was sort of right.’
