His recovery has been slower than he’d hoped. “Truly, doctor’s orders are the only thing that could keep me from being there,” he said in a statement issued through Universal, Robin Hood‘s distributor. Stars Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett and producer Brian Grazer will still be getting papped from the red carpet though.
