Los Angeles, Feb 22 (PTI) Actor Brooke Shields has revealed she is on the road to recovery after breaking the femur in her right leg.

'The Blue Lagoon' star took to Instagram on Sunday and said she is trying to stay positive and learning to walk again.

'Broke my femur. Beginning to mend. No matter what your challenge is, make a positive choice, for yourself, to move forward. #BeginningisNow,' Shields wrote alongside a video of herself on crutches wearing a hospital gown.

In the clip, the 55-year-old actor said, as of now she can put 'only 20 percent weight' on her injured femur.

'The goal is to bend your knee each time like a little bit, just so you're not dragging it or hitching up your hip,' she added.

Shields did not reveal the cause of her injury, or how long doctors expect her to be in recovery. PTI RDS RDS
