Berry’s rep said in a statement, “Halle Berry suffered a minor head injury while shooting a fight sequence on the set 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.”
This isn’t Berry’s first accident while filming a movie. Last year, Halle broke her foot on an off day in Spain.
