Mackie: My groin works

Anthony Mackie has reassured fans that his groin is back in working order after a football injury.

The 35-year-old actor once suffered a painful sporting injury to his nether region, but he assures his fans that that is now completely healed.

He's back in good shape, which is just in time for the filming of the next Avengers Instalment in which Anthony will resume his role of Sam Wilson / The Falcon.

"A pulled groin muscle I got playing football," Anthony answered when Empire magazine asked him to recall his worst injury. "Because once your groin's hurt, there's nothing else you can do. I'm happy to say that my groin is 100 per cent back to full capacity!"

As if to demonstrate the point further, Anthony went on to brag about his prowess in the bedroom.

Although he did admit that his confidence in the boudoir is based solely on what his long-time girlfriend Sheletta Chapital has told him.

"Uh... sex," he mused when asked what he could do better than anyone else.

"I'm pretty good in the man jungle, I'm telling you. I mean, that's just what my girlfriend tells me. She could be lying. Hmmm, the more I think about it, the more I think she might by lying to me - but as lies go, it's a damn good lie. This brag has not been independently verified by a team of impartial adjudicators," he laughed.

Anthony is currently starring in Repentance alongside Oscar winner Forest Whittaker.

The movie centres on the story of an author-and-spiritual-advisor who takes on a troubled client.

The role required Anthony to film some harrowing scenes.

"We just kind of committed, because Anthony had a hard task of being tied up, beat up, watered over, yelled at and we trusted each other. I think that’s the big key, that we were able to say, 'Okay. We’re going to do this. We’re going to commit completely to this.' We knew that we were going to be there for each other in those scenes because they were emotionally and physically violent at times," Forest recently told Collider.
