Halle Berry breaks her silence after ‘Bruised’ injury halts production
Halle Berry’s injury while making Bruised may have knocked her down but she’s far from out.
The 53-year-old actress used social media to thank her fans for their well wishes following her on-set injury. Berry, who plays an MMA fighter in the flick, corrected the executive producer of the film’s assessment that she was “tired” as a result of the injury, and made it clear it won’t stop her from doing her own stunts in the future.
“Thank you to all the folks that have showered me with love since my injury,” Berry wrote. “It’s par for the course when you do your own stunts, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
She added, “Just know I’m far from tired. I’m wide awake … and just getting started!”
The Oscar winner is starring in the mixed martial arts film, which also marks her directorial debut. It was announced Monday that production was rescheduled after Berry “got slightly injured in the fight,” executive producer Brian Pitt told NJ Advance Media. The injury was “nothing serious,” he added, but he said Berry was “tired” and “needed a break.”The film in which she plays a troubled MMA fighter overcoming personal obstacles — is expected to resume on Friday. However, gym scenes Berry was supposed to shoot in Newark on Monday may be postponed until later in production.
