Death Wish director Michael Winner has blasted suggestions he may be forced to have his leg amputated.
The 71-year-old British filmmaker, who is currently fronting a TV advertisement for insurance company eSure, is being treated in a London hospital after suffering blistering to his leg while on holiday in Barbados earlier this month.
There were fears he would have to have the limb removed – but Winner has laughed off the claims.
“I have been interested in recent newspaper reports suggesting I had lost, or was about to lose, one leg, two legs, an arm, a head – some people suggesting this went some time ago! – or even a fingernail,” he says. “I am happy to tell you that, when I last looked, all of these items appeared solidly where they have been for many years.”
Winner added: “I am further advised that the chance of any of them leaving my persona are non-existent. So if you see a leg lying around, it is not mine, unless, of course, it is firmly attached to my body.”
A hospital spokesperson claims Winner is making good progress.
