"Terminator 2 " and "Green Hornet" actor Edward Furlong filed a police report claiming that he was robbed on the streets of Skid Row in broad daylight.Furlong flagged a police on patrol and reported that he was robbed by a man after he asked him for directions, according to TMZ. The man didn't whip out any weapons, but Furlong said he gave it up without a fight to avoid trouble.

So now we're wondering what exactly Furlong was doing on Skid Row. Nick Stahl, the last "Terminator" star who spent a lot of time on Skid Row, spent a lot of time there as his drug addiction worsened.

We're not saying Furlong was there for the same reason, but, uh, we're guessing he wasn't trying to figure out directions to a homeless shelter or one of the industrial warehouses in the area.
