Kristin Chenoweth needs a stuntwoman. The actress was injured on the set of the CBS drama The Good Wife and taken by ambulance to a New York hospital. She has since been released. According to her spokeswoman, Chenoweth, 43, was bashed in the head by scaffolding. In a statement, the studio described the equipment involved differently. “While filming a scene for The Good Wife in Brooklyn, a gust of wind blew a lighting silk out of place striking actress Kristin Chenoweth,” the studio said. Lighting silk is cloth used to soften or deflect artificial light or sunlight during shooting.
Another Good Wife guest star is in a better place: Maura Tierney, 47, talked about her 2009 breast-cancer battle with People. “I remember thinking, ‘I’m so young, this can’t be happening,’” Tierney tells the magazine. “It was an odd moment.” The former ER star underwent a mastectomy and reconstruction as well as three months of chemotherapy. “It’s not fun. You don’t feel well,” says the actress of the treatment, who added exercise helped in her recovery.
