Halle Berry almost re-broke foot on movie set

Halle Berry almost re-broke her foot just one day after getting her cast off when she slipped on a wet rock while shooting her new movie Cloud Atlas.

The Oscar winner broke a bone in her foot after she tripped and fell at a house she was renting on location in Majorca, Spain earlier this year (12), requiring her to use a wheelchair to get around.


As soon as the fracture healed and her cast was removed, Halle Berry was back on set.


Her co-star Tom Hanks tells the New York Times Style Magazine, "She called it a 'bump in the road.' But this was a severe break. In between takes, she had to be helped to her chair because she couldn't stand up on her own."


But that didn't keep the 46 year old from giving the film her all and she immediately threw herself into an action sequence - which almost ended disastrously.


Directors Andy and Lana Wachowski continued, "The first day after she got her cast off her foot she had to do a scene standing on a rock in the middle of a river."


Halle Berry then slipped on her broken foot and yelled out in pain, but she persevered through the shoot: "This fire ignited in her eyes and she was suddenly (her character) Meronym again. The take was flawless. It's the one in the film. She is one of the gutsiest actors we've ever worked with."
