Actor Tom Selleck has revealed that he is suffering from arthritis and that lately it has been taking it’s toll on the 68-year-old.
Selleck, who previously had been keeping his illness under wraps claims that the condition appears to be worsening, and at times the pain is so bad that he needs a stunt double to film the simplest of scenes.
Source’s close to the “Blue Bloods” actor reveals:
“Tom’s days as the car-jumping scuba-diving action star are a thing of the past.
“He hates that his arthritis slows him down. Like most stars, there’s a stunt double for dangerous action shots, but Tom even uses the guy for simple scenes, like getting in and out of his police car.
“Tom may not move like he once did, but he’s still a tough guy. No one mentions his arthritis, and that’s exactly the way he wants it.”
Tom Selleck is best known for his role as Magnum PI. and as Monica Gellar’s boyfriend on “Friends.”
