Halle Berry Broke Even More Ribs Filming Her MMA Movie 'Bruised'

Halle Berry is no stranger to breaking her ribs, and revealed in a new interview that she did it again while filming her upcoming MMA movie, Bruised!

Bruised centers on a disgraced MMA fighter (Berry), who finds redemption in the cage and the courage to face her demons when the son she had given up as an infant unexpectedly reenters her life.

In her cover story with Entertainment Weekly, Halle opened up about how she broke two of her ribs on the first day of filming.

But, she actually refused to stop production because of it.

“[It was] kind of a crazy injury,” stunt coordinator Eric Brown shared about the incident. “But that was just her intensity … Halle’s a special case. I’ve worked with tons of actors, and almost none of them have that kind of work ethic.”

Halle also recalled breaking her ribs while shooting John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum, and revealed that’s in part of why she chose not to stop production.

“I told the director about it [then], they told the insurance. We had to shut down for months and it was a big ordeal,” she shared. “On this, because it was an independent movie, we didn’t have a big budget. The director in me said, ‘I didn’t come this far and work this hard to go home.’”

Bruised is coming to Netflix on November 24.
