Break a leg? Not exactly. But theater vet Mary-Louise Parker was nursing a broken toe at Sunday night’s Tony Awards in New York City.

“I smashed it on the bed frame,” she told PEOPLE at the after party, where she remained seated in her Alberta Ferretti gown. “Good for me, right?”

Alas, it was no real-life romp. The actress injured herself while shooting a scene from Weeds. “How’s that for commitment?” she mused. “Fantastic!”

And yes, her director used the, um, footage. “They kind of had to,” explained Parker. “It was the first take!”
