LOS ANGELES: Actor Halle Berry was injured on the sets of her upcoming film "Bruised". According to NJ Advance Media, the Oscar winner suffered an injury while she was shooting for a fight scene.

Her injury has slightly delayed the film, which also marks her feature directorial debut. Berry is also producing the project.

Executive producer Brian Pitt told the outlet that Berry's injury was "nothing serious".

"She's tired. She needed a break... Occasionally what's going to happen is an actor might get a little injured, and we might adjust scheduling around them a little bit," he added.
