People often say "break a leg" to wish an actor luck, but Paul Walker may have taken it a bit too far.

Paul is underwent surgery on January 9 to repair a knee injury suffered last year while filming the new film Fast & Furious 6

Paul initially assumed he had broken his leg during filming, but it turned out that he had torn ligaments in his knee and needed to have his ACL surgically repaired. 

Luckily, Paul appeared to be in good spirits going into surgery. On January 9, Paul posted a pic to Twitter of the injured knee from the hospital prior to surgery, along with the message, "Surgery time, bitches."

We especially love that happy face that's written on the injured knee!

Later in the day, he let everyone know that the procedure was a success. "Eazy Peazy! My mobility is already better than when I went in. Thanks for the love peeps," Paul wrote on Twitter.

Sounds like he'll be up and back to crashing cars on the big screen in no time.
