Ouch! Schitts Creek star Dan Levy has revealed he suffered a nasty injury after ‘faceplanting on the rug’ while running to the toilet
Dan penned the caption: ‘Ever have to pee so bad walking home from dinner that you start to run, then finally get home only to run to the bathroom, slip on the carpet, face plant on the thin rug covering hardwood flooring, bust open both knees, elbows, and forearms before actually making it to the toilet?
‘We’re doing great, everyone. Wishing you and yours a pleasant evening!’
Dan is not the first Hollywood star to have had an accident whilst rushing to the toilet as Sharon Stone also told of her disasters in the comments section.

She said: ‘Sadly yes. It’s not just you. Sorry you have a boo boo honey.’
Helen Hunt also exclaimed: ‘Oh my goodness.’
It comes after Dan previously admitted he had to wear a neck brace while filming Schitts Creek due to severe anxiety, and needed an acupuncturist and a chiropractor on set every day.

By the sixth – and final – series of Schitt’s Creek, Dan’s stress levels were so extreme that he had to wear a neck brace.
The star – who plays David Rose in the show about an extremely rich family who lose everything overnight – told British GQ: ‘Because the anxiety in my neck was so bad I couldn’t move it.
‘At one point there was an acupuncturist and a chiropractor coming to set every day at lunch to work on my neck so that I could actually perform and not, you know, look like I needed a neck brace.’

In 2020 Dan also admitted he ‘hasn’t been out much’ due to his severe anxiety, and how he believes it started because of a ‘deep-rooted fear’ of knowing he ‘was gay.’
In an interview with Bustle, he said: ‘Over the past six years … I really haven’t been outside that much.’
On how his anxiety inhibited him from coming out, Dan said: ‘I think that came from a deep-rooted fear of knowing that I was gay and not being able to be free.
‘By the time I got to high school, when your brain is starting to catch up to your physical impulses, it led to a very confusing time. Because on the one hand, you are now being introduced to things like self-awareness and anxiety. At the same time, you’re becoming more and more savvy when it comes to hiding it.’
Despite his parents, Deborah Divine and Eugene Levy, being supportive of their son’s sexuality, the actor still feared he would be ‘ridiculed’.
He continued: ‘Fear of being ridiculed. Fear of being othered. Fear of exposing something that I think a lot of high school students at the time didn’t have the tools to process properly, to make it comfortable for me.’
Eugene admitted he wishes he had talked about what was happening with his son more, but Dan insisted he didn’t feel ready to discuss being gay until he did tell his parents.
His father said: ‘I would have done things so much differently, you know?
‘I would have gotten more involved in talking about what was going on. Not necessarily that we would have gotten any direct answers. You can only get back what you get back.’
