Actress Halle Berry was rushed to hospital in Los Angeles last night following an accident on the set of her latest movie, it has been claimed.
It is believed that Halle Berry hit her head on some concrete after taking a nasty fall while shooting The Hive in the city.
The mother-of-one, who had appeared in good spirits while filming earlier in the day, was rushed to the Cedars-Sinai Hospital in LA shortly after the incident occurred at around 10:00 p.m. last night.
A spokesperson for the actress said she has since been released from hospital, adding in a statement: “Halle Berry suffered a minor head injury while shooting a fight sequence on the set of her film, The Hive.
“She was taken to the hospital as a precaution, but she checked out healthy and was released. She’ll continue production as planned.”
Following the accident, the set was shut down soon afterwards.
Earlier in the day, Halle Berry, 45, looked happy and cheery as she waved to fans while the crew set up shots on location in southern central Los Angeles.
The thriller, which is set against the backdrop of a 911 call centre, also stars Abigail Breslin, who first shot to fame in Little Miss Sunshine.
Halle Berry plays a 911 emergency operator who takes a call from a teenage girl, who has been abducted and carried away in the boot of a car.
The kidnapping plays out in real time as the pair work together to track down the killer.
It’s not the first time Halle Berry has been injured while filming.
In 2011, Halle Berry broke her foot while filming the movie adaptation of David Nicholls’ novel Cloud Atlas in Spain.
It was reported at the time that Halle Berry’s injury occurred in between filming as she spent time with her daughter Nahla at the property she was renting in Palma de Mallorca.
Meanwhile, the actress is currently embroiled in an intense custody battle for Nahla with former boyfriend, Calvin Klein model Gabriel Aubry.
She has hired the best legal guns in LA and taken Gabriel to court dozens of times in a bid to gain full custody of Nahla.
The actress has said she wants to move with her daughter to France to live with actor fiancé, Olivier Martinez.
The case is due to go to trial in a later this month and the parents are expected to take the stand against one another.
