Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin is nursing a broken nose after a writing exercise went wrong.
The Social Network screenwriter had a visibly swollen and bruised nose when he turned up to a pre-Emmy Awards event in Hollywood on Friday (16Sep11).
He tells the Los Angeles Times, "I wish I could say I was in a bar fight, but I broke my nose writing."
Sorkin explained he was staring into a mirror and reciting dialogue when he "accidentally head-butted" himself.
