Michelle Yeoh took to Instagram to share an unfortunate injury over her Valentine’s weekend in Paris.

Apparently, the “Crazy Rich Asians” star suffered a “bad trip” — and advised fans not to look if they’re squeamish.


In the photo posted on Saturday, medical staff can be seen tending to the injury on her left shin.

Her partner, French businessman Jean Todt, is also pictured with concern on his face.

“Bad trip. Don’t look closely if (you’re) squeamish … My heroes looked it over, then rushed me to hospital for 10 stitches!!!” Yeoh captioned her post.

People wished the 56-year-old actress a speedy recovery, including “Crazy Rich Asians” co-stars Henry Golding and Ken Jeong.

Fortunately, Yeoh seemed to have bounced back quickly, moving out of the hospital for the rest of her time-off.

“Chilling in Palma … so beautiful and thank you all for your good wishes. Guess I’m not quite the super ninja,” she wrote in a follow-up post.

Aside from the sequel to “Crazy Rich Asians,” fans are expecting to see Yeoh’s Philippa Georgiou in her own “Star Trek” spin-off at CBS.
