Stephen Moyer Sporting a Cane at the 2009 Scream Awards

October 19, 2009 by  

Anna Paquin and Stephen MoyerThe 2009 Scream Awards was taped this past Saturday and to much of the delight of True Blood fans, real-life couple, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, walked away with Best Horror actress and actor awards. Anna was wearing Marc Jacobs and fiancee, Stephen Moyer was sporting a cane! Why, you ask? Well Stephen was asked why he was walking with a cane and he replied:

“I tore my meniscus; I didn’t know what that word was until about two weeks ago.”

Now your probably wondering how the star hurt himself. Stephen explained:

“Rolling around with my kids. I’d like to say it was some kind of thrusting, sexy injury, but it really isn’t!”

Well we certainly wish Stephen a speedy recovery and congratulate him and Anna on their Scream Awards!

    Yup kids will do that to you. My two young boys bang me up pretty good some times and lets say they have very good accidental “aim” too. (guys you know what I mean)

    In Steven’s comments I read thrusting sexy and I thought anything involving sexy thrusting can hurt you too, then my eyes put the words in the correct order.

    I hope Stephen mends quickly and his pain is at ease. From what I’ve been told and read about his character he will be ready to shoot season 3, but antonio said it right his health is paramount.

    My condolences and thoughts are with Stephen wishing him well.

    Poor Baby!!!! I hope it does not take that long for our boy! He has work to do!!

  • Nia

    Leave it to Stephen to hurt himself playing with the kids. Got to love him even more for that.
    From all I have seen him do, he is a very active individual. High metaboism and a workaholic. Good for him!
    Get well soon Stephen!!!
    We need you!

  • Hope Stephen gets better soon!

  • OWWWW! My dad and sister both did that, and both say it is very painful. For my sister, it’s been years of physical therapy. For my dad, not nearly as much (maybe 6 months), but he did say it made his favorite physical activity (bike riding) incredibly difficult because it hurt.
