Los Angeles - Ruby Rose was battling with a ripped calf muscle when she hosted the MTV Europe Music Awards on Sunday night.

The Orange is the New Black star, who limped on to the red carpet with a black cane, was struggling to walk properly at the Mediolanum Forum in Milan because she had suffered the crippling injury while filming her movie Resident Evil: The Final Chapter in Cape Town, South Africa, recently.

Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, she said: "I just got off of shooting an action film, hence the cane because I've torn my leg. I just tore my calf muscle five times, no big deal."

Despite the nasty tear in her leg, the 29-year-old actress, who was strutting her stuff in a pair of killer heels at the music awards in Italy, has admitted she thrives off the risk involved in performing her own stunts on set.

She explained with a grin:"We got to do amazing things. Acting is just that genre where you get to do whatever you want. I don't regret that. It adds to the character."
