    It's true. The actor had to make the trip in the midst of filming the upcoming movie Prisoner's Daughter — and she recently told James Corden about the whole deal.

    Apparently, Kate sustained an injury after putting on a pair of leggings. Yup, you heard that right.

    “Having done 8 or 900 action movies, I hurt myself putting on a pair of leggings in my hotel room,” she admitted.

    “I was in my hotel room putting on a pair of leggings, and it felt like a sort of guitar string snapped, and everything was horrible. I mean, worse than having a baby bad, like bad,” she continued. “I couldn’t walk; I couldn’t lie down; I couldn’t sit down. I couldn’t do anything.”

    After an ambulance showed up to cart her to the hospital, however, she was in the right hands: "They sort of rolled out a sheet and picked me up in it like a sort of sausage, and put me on a gurney...I'm alright now."
