"This sucks" - that was the simple message actor Ryan Phillippe tweeted Sunday night, and a shocking photo he shared on Instagram revealed exactly what he meant.

Ryan Phillippe was rushed to the hospital after breaking his leg in a "freak accident" over the weekend.

The 42-year-old posted this photo on Instagram on Sunday.

No word on what caused his injury, but he's been busy filming Shooter, his US network series, this summer.

Phillippe typically performs his own stunts in his physically strenuous Shooter role, but as he explained on Twitter, he wasn't on set when he injured his leg.

"It's a tough show to shoot".

"I said, 'I want that to be the calling card of our show, '" the star recalled. "It's exhausting. I've got bruises", he continued. "But it's going really well, and I'm excited about people seeing this new season". Ryan recently dished on returning to the genre for the film.

"I mean, listen, you do a sitcom or, you know, another type of show, and you're just on a cool soundstage every day".

He continued by saying: "I thought it would be kind of fun for me now, as an adult, to play a parent in a film that was like those that I started my career with".
