Night at the Museum, Ben Stiller

20th Century Fox

Ben Stiller has no problem with Tropic Thunder. Snowy hills, that's another story...

The actor-director required a trip to the hospital over the weekend after a downhill mishap, E! News has learned.

"I can confirm he broke his hand snowboarding," said publicist Kelly Bush.

The 43-year-old funnyman was admitted Sunday to New York's Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was treated for the fracture. He is now on the mend.

No further officials details have been released, but the New York Daily News reports that one of Mount Sinai's top hand specialists was called in to patch up Stiller.

He'll be fully healed in time for the publicity rounds for his next probable blockbuster, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, due in May.
