Kristin Chenoweth is sharing some wisdom she learned from a serious field accident she suffered a decade ago.
during the appearance “Watch What It’s Like to Live With Andy Cohen,” Cohen asked Chenoweth about her injury while filming the CBS drama “The Good Wife” in 2012, which Chenoweth discusses in her book “I’m Not a Philosopher, But I Have Ideas.” Detailed description.
Chenoweth said she did not pursue legal action against the network at the time, a decision she later regretted.
“I don’t do this out of fear and anxiety, so never let fear rule your life,” Chenoweth says. “I’ve been hurt for a long time from this, so I wish I had listened to my dad, who said, ‘You’re going to want to do this.’ We’re not the family that sues, but when you’re almost killed.”
The Emmy-winning actress said her skull was fractured seven inches and her ribs and teeth were broken after a piece of lighting equipment hit her in the face and “threw me to the curb”. She said the hair extensions she was wearing at the time of the accident helped minimize the severity of the fracture.
“My hair extension saved my (life),” Chenoweth said. “It made the hairline fracture happen. My doctor said, ‘What are these metal things? I said, ‘They’re hair extensions.’ He said, ‘They saved your life.'”
She added: “So, for your health, anyone who wants to have hair extensions should do so.”

Kristin Chenoweth leaves ‘The Good Wife’ after accident on set
Chenoweth was injured while filming The Good Wife in New York in July 2012, according to The Los Angeles Times, BBC News and TMZ. Chenoweth, who was hospitalized with her injuries, played Peggy Byrne for two episodes in the series’ fourth season.
After the accident, CBS said a gust of wind blew the lighting silk — a “fabric used to soften or deflect artificial light or sunlight during filming” — out of place, causing the accident, the BBC reported. The light hits Chenoweth. Photos obtained by TMZ show Chenoweth lying on a gurney wearing a neck brace after the accident.
While a representative of the New York City Fire Department said a woman who was injured on set suffered “minor injuries,” Chenoweth later issued a statement announcing she would be leaving The Good Wife to focus on her recovery.
“It is with great regret that I inform you that I will not be able to return to ‘The Good Wife’ at this time due to my injury,” Chenoweth said.
