British actress Kate Winslet broke her toe when she had a run in with a falling chair on the set of her latest film Triple 9. She plays a Russian mafia gangster, Irina Vlaslov, in a heist thriller to be released in theaters on Feb 26th, 2016. Instead of taking care of herself, Kate powered through her scene the next day jamming her poor toe into a pair of red boots so she could stay in character.
