ACTOR Chris O'Dowd broke his leg in a "very Irish accident", according to his wife.

Writer Dawn O'Porter mischievously revealed how O'Dowd was injured while out partying in Dublin last weekend.

TV presenter Dawn revealed how the Moone Boy star, who is currently filming his home-grown sitcom with Hollywood actor Paul Rudd in Dublin, got injured in a "very Irish accident".

And Dawn told ITV's Lorraine Kelly that the Bridesmaids star is unable to walk their dog due to the injury.

She said: "He broke his foot in a bit of an Irish accident on Friday night in Dublin. He can't walk the dog."

When Lorraine inquired if "drink had been taken", his wife giggled and said: "Well, that's the Irish part of it. Yes."

O'Dowd, who played Gaelic football for Roscommon, recently donned a Mayo for Sam t-shirt while waiting for a flight from Knock airport.

Paul Rudd, who starred as Phoebe's husband in Friends, last appeared alongside the Roscommon actor in the recent movie This Is 40.

And it seems like the famous actors could be seeing more of each other, as Dawn revealed yesterday that she is jetting off to LA with her Irish spouse after buying a home in Los Angeles.

But she said they will still be flying back to London and Dublin regularly for work despite investing in their own American pad. "We're actually moving in October. We've bought a house out there," she said.

Dawn also told how she can't understand how some famous couples refuse to talk about each other in public.

"I don't really understand the 'public eye, won't be seen together, won't talk about my relationship thing' because I think that means the industry has won a bit," she said.

"Marriage first and that just keeps us very healthy and happy and then we get on with our jobs."

"I can't imagine not talking about my relationship when it is such a massive part of my life. I just think that's a bit weird."
