Broderick

Bounces Back from Injury

9/7/2006 12:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Just days after Matthew Broderick broke his collarbone in a freak horse riding accident, the actor is getting back in the saddle (so to speak). The "Producers" star was spotted roaming the streets of New York City yesterday, his bad arm resting in a sling.

The mishap occurred while the "Ferris Bueller" star was horseback riding at his holiday home in Ireland. Broderick was treated at a local hospital and was accompanied by his wife, Sarah Jessica Parker.

Our question ... how did he light that cigarette?

You guys can't light a cigarette with one hand? Are you kidding me?

Um, you stick it in your mouth and use the good hand to light it. I don't even smoke, but I know that.

Gosh, you'd think the staff at TMZ were idiots?? How did he light the cig? Gosh, next question would be how did he zip his pants that morning?

I'm real curious how Mr. Ferris Bueller could live in a vacation home in Ireland. Didn't he get away with murder only about 12 years ago. He ran down a mother and daughter with his car, by driving on the wrong side of the road, and didn't do any time or pay any costs. Shows you what fame and fortune can do!

What isn't being told is that Matthew was doing research as he's playing Christopher Reeves in a bio pic about Chris.

It's too bad his only movie credit (Ferris) was a movie made 20 years ago. He has done other things in the last 20 years, TMZ.

And thanks for the though-provoking question. Mmmm. Gosh that's a hard one to figure out. *sarcastic speak*. yawn.

I was astonished to find that what #6 said is true. wow.

In 1987, while Broderick was vacationing in Northern Ireland with his then-girlfriend Jennifer Grey (who'd played his sister in Ferris Bueller), he steered his rented BMW into the opposite lane and it collided head-on with an oncoming car. Margaret Doherty, 63, and her daughter Anna Gallagher, 30, were killed. Doherty's son Martin Doherty was crippled. Broderick and Grey were slightly injured. Broderick, whose blood tested negative for alcohol, was charged with causing death by dangerous driving, and under Irish law he could have been imprisoned for five years. He was convicted only of careless driving, and fined $175. The family of the dead were understandably furious. Broderick has since said he's "willing to" meet with Doherty to apologize, but he hasn't.

I'd rather see him with gray hair than with some awful dye job. He is 44, after all. He's got gray--so what? In any case, I'm glad he's doing better.
