Halle Berry won't miss work after trip to L.A. hospital, rep says


Actress Halle Berry won't miss any work after suffering a "minor head injury" on set that resulted in a trip to a Los Angeles hospital, her publicist said.

"She'll continue production as planned," spokeswoman Meredith O'Sullivan said in a statement.

The 45-year-old Academy Award winner reportedly fell on the set of "The Hive" on Tuesday night, prompting a trip to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

O'Sullivan confirmed that the actress suffered a "minor head injury" while shooting a fight scene for the film, but did not say when the incident occurred or where the actress was treated.

"She checked out healthy and was released," O'Sullivan said.

Berry has suffered several injuries on set before, including a broken arm while filming "Gothika" in 2003 and an eye injury while shooting "Die Another Day" the previous year. In 2004, she was hospitalized after being hit on the head with lighting equipment on the set of "Catwoman."

Berry plays a 911 operator trying to save an abducted girl in "The Hive," which is due out in 2013. Abigail Breslin also stars in the film.
