Rebel Wilson has been admitted to hospital after a stunt on a movie she was filming went wrong.
She posted a picture of her face with a slightly bloodied nose at the base. The incident happened in the early hours of the morning, around 4am - taking place during a night shoot.
She captioned the picture: "NOT the way I wanted to end this movie. Three stitches and in hospital last night after a stunt accident at 4am."
The movie Bride Hard will follow the story of a secret agent, played by Wilson. Except the secret agent will be taking on her most difficult mission yet, being a maid of honour at the wedding of her childhood friend.
Most 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.
SAG-AFTRA has previously explained the nature of the interim agreement system, which is being used by films including Bride Hard.
The statement said: “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.”
The strikes are ongoing, with writers and actors picketing in recent weeks and not coming in to work. WGA members, in particular, have been on strike since 2 May.
In addition, writers have walked out over a dispute over pay and conditions, including requesting assurances about the use of AI in filmmaking.
