Rebel Wilson has shared an update after she was taken to hospital when a film stunt went wrong.
The 43-year-old revealed that the incident took place during a night shoot and left her with a slightly bloodied nose at the bottom and a cut on the bridge.
Wilson has since issued a subsequent follow-up for her fans earlier this morning (10 August). Have a look:
The first announcement, posted 6 August, was a picture of her injured face captioned: "NOT the way I wanted to end this movie. Three stitches and in hospital last night after a stunt accident at 4am."
Wilson's latest update on the matter was shared with her 11.3 million fans on her Instagram story.
"Hey everybody what's up?" she began.
"So I just want to say thank you for all your well wishes I've actually been healing quite amazing, the stitches have dissolved out from my onset accident last week, I was shooting an independent movie in Savannah, Georgia."
She went on to reiterate what had happened during the accident: "In the middle of a night shoot, my last scene of the movie, I've done all these kick-ass fight sequences and then just in the last one got hit in the face with a bit of a gun.
"So it was a complete accident and was such a shock."
Luckily, the actor revealed she was 'healing very well'.
"I hopefully will be totally, totally fine," Wilson went on.
"And it was like, really fun to do an action movie, but God it can be, you know, a bit dangerous at times, but I'm all good. So thanks, everybody," she concluded.
The upcoming action-comedy flick, coming from Expendables 2 director Simon West, will see Wilson play a top-secret agent who struggles to fulfil her duties as the maid of honour at her childhood best friend's wedding.
Many productions have shut down due to the strikes by the Writers' Guild of America (WGA) and SAG-AFTRA, the Screen Actors' Guild.
However, filming on Bride Hard has been allowed to continue under an interim agreement. This was granted as the movie is technically an independent production, so work can continue on it without it impacting the ongoing dispute.
In a statement, SAG-AFTRA previously explained the nature of the interim agreement system, which is being used by films including Bride Hard.
It reads: "The Interim Agreement gives many of our journeyman performers and crews the opportunity to pay their rent and feed their families.
"This approach maintains our strength, solidarity and upper hand with the AMPTP until they yield to the deal we deserve.
"The Interim Agreement is not a waiver. To be clear, it is a contract that includes all terms and conditions for producers looking to employ our members on their specific independent productions.
"This Interim Agreement was created for several reasons, all of which are aimed at protecting the interests of our members, helping them successfully navigate the strike and demonstrating to the AMPTP that other producers are eager to work with our members under these terms."
