Ageing beauty Raquel Welch spent the early part of 2012 hobbling around film sets after refusing to rest her broken left foot.
The One Million Years B.C. star tells WENN she fell down a flight of stairs on Christmas Day, but refused to let the accident stall her work commitments.
She explains, "I get injured doing everything. Christmas Day I came home from dinner and I fell down the stairs and broke my left foot. It was horrible because all I could think of, being an actress, while I was falling was, 'My God, I've got a shoot next week and I won't be able to wear those high heels.'
"They (doctors) wanted to put me in a wheelchair and I said, 'No you won't. I'll figure it out!'"
