Halle Berry was injured on-set last night, hospitalized in LA for a head injury

These are some newish photos of Halle Berry on the downtown LA set of her latest film, The Hive, yesterday. I think these photos were taken relatively early in the day on Tuesday, because later on in the day, Halle was injured on the set. It wasn’t just a light boo-boo either – according to sources, Halle was “rushed to Cedars-Sinai” around 10 pm. Radar says that Halle “either fell or was hit by a falling object.” TMZ says Halle “hit her head on concrete after taking a nasty fall.”

Whatever happened, it sounds like a head injury, which reminded CB of Natasha Richardson’s devastating (and then fatal) head injury back in 2009. While my gut says that Halle’s situation isn’t like Natasha’s, head injuries and concussions can be very tricky and it’s good that producers got Halle to the hospital quickly. Have you ever been struck on your head? I have. Head injuries always bleed like a motherf—er too. Send positive thoughts to Halle!

PS… On a superficial note, Halle is not wearing a wig in these photos – she actually cut her hair like that.

    Gabriel said he was going to try and knock some sense into her, but this is a little overboard!!

    Ha ha.

    Here’s to a speedy recovery…of her sanity!

  2. lucy2 says:

    Not to make light of a head injury but…maybe it will knock some sanity into her.

  3. brin says:

    That just happened to Kristen Chenowith too.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Yup and both KC and HB are nototrious klutzes.
      Their insurance premiums must be through the roof!

  4. beyonce's bump says:

    I am in LOVE with Halle’s body. Why would she cut her hair like that though? :( It looks horrid! Hope its for a role. I was going to make a joke about maybe a hit to head will make her come to her senses…then I realized that’s probably taking it too far hehe. Hope she gets better.

  5. Autumnleaves says:

    I pray for Halle’s speedy recovery. She’s one if me fave’s.

  6. Jacq says:

    Maybe when she wakes up, she’ll be a nice, normal person.


  7. wilkiecollins says:

    God I am so jaded the first thing I thought was this is a plea for public sympathy after her poor handling of the custody issue. If it isn’t I wish her a quick recovery.

  8. Bite me aka aniston says:

    She’s always getting injured on film sets

    • Just Saying says:

      MTE. She gets injured quite frequently on film sets, strange. Hope she is well.

    • fabgrrl says:

      Isn’t she partially deaf? Maybe that explains her clumsiness.

    • TG says:

      Considering Hallie is a narcissist of the first order and I believe she has NPD it doesn’t surprise me that she is always getting injured another play for attention ME ME ME all the time. Halle and tom thumb have to be the most hated celebrities if not americans and I have zero sympathy for either of them. I don’t like people who harm others and try to take their kids away from others. And no I don’t include Katie in that category imo she and her daughter escaped from a dangerous situation.

  9. carrie says:

    She is known as clumsy by the movie insurance because she is often injuried and she is diabetic

  10. maemay says:

    Hope she is well and fairly resolves the custody stuff.

  11. tripmom says:

    Maybe she’ll go into a coma and wake up as a nice, not-crazy person.

    • Dusty says:

      I was thinking the same thing! And also about Karma…

      • Madpoe says:

        +3 perhaps it was an ego related injury?

        on the other hand hope she’ll be ok, thought I heard Ang had a similar injury for “Salt” – yeah, Natasha Richardson’s accident was devastating.

    • Mia 4S says:

      Oh dear Tripmom, I laughed. I’m not going to lie, I laughed. Hope she is OK of course but otherwise cannot stand her.

    • tripmom says:

      I feel a lot less guilty posting something semi-mean when I see how many of us were having the same thought at the same time!

    • jc126 says:

      Add me to the chorus of those who immediately hoped a head injury might knock some sense into her. Not feeling guilty about that, either.

  12. the original bellaluna says:

    Maybe it knocked the cray-cray out of her.

    Oh, and feel better. (Notice I said “better” and not “bitter.”)

    • Kim says:

      Maybe she will die and then he may get custody.Happy Haters

      • cmc says:

        Whhoooooaaa there, Kim! (I kind of agree…)

      • Fyofeelings says:

        You people are sick! you people hope she dies?! Really?! Just like you say its karma for her there will be karma for you for wanting something like that to happen!

      • Naomi says:

        This is a reminder why I stay out of any posts to do with Halle Berry, the irony of people calling her crazy, whilst at the same time wishing death on someone they only know through gossip blogs. Wow, just wow

      • lena80 says:

        Wow…just wow at your comment. Disgusting. You don’t have to care for this STRANGER who you DO NOT KNOW, but stating maybe she will die is crossing the line.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Whoa, there Kim. I didn’t say anything about her dying or hoping she died or anything of the sort.

  13. marie says:

    I hope she is alright.. Also, this is how my hair looks daily although it’s to my shoulders, can not imagine it being any shorter..

    • cmc says:

      Mine too (it’s to my shoulders when curly). Couldn’t imagine cutting it any shorter- the curls need more weight to stay down and stick straight up like hers when they’re shorter. I learned not to cut it that short a looong time ago, surprised she hadn’t.

  14. Ravensdaughter says:

    This sounds scary. Not a fan of Halle’s; nevertheless, I hope she recovers quickly and completely, meaning no lasting disabilities, either.

  15. velouria says:

    too easy…get well soon!

  16. paola says:

    Karma is a bitch.

    • dallasite40 says:

      And let’s hope karma hits back at you!

      • paola says:

        Excuse me?? do you even know what karma means? Karma doesn’t mean wishing other people bad things, but it means actions and consequenses. If you do something bad than don’t be surprised if something bad happens to you as well, it just the result of your bad behaviour in every aspect of your life.
        Please before writing nasty stuff at least learn what words mean instead of biting back with no reason at all.

  17. some bitch says:

    Yikes. Head injuries are serious. Hope Halle will make a speedy recovery!

  18. Cameron says:

    I think it’s a wig if not, she didn’t cut her hair she’s letting it grow out. Her hair was much shorter. I hope she okay.

  19. Cameron says:

    I think it’s a wig if not, she didn’t cut her hair she’s letting it grow out. Her hair was much shorter. I hope she’s okay.

  20. Michelle says:

    This chick is always injured!

  21. The Original Mia says:

    First her foot, now her noggin. Goodness woman!

    Hope she makes a speedy recovery and gets to the hairdresser’s soon to fix that wacky do.

  22. Ari says:

    I didn’t believe it was a wig as I have a similar hair type when its short. Its crazy looking but cute. Its much longer now thank god. Mixed girl hair curse haha. Anyway I hope she recovers well.

  23. QQ says:

    that hair is awful, i should know cause mine is doing the exact same shit as we speak :(

    …which is why im keeping it straight until Awkward Lenght Tour of Duty is Over

  24. Just Saying says:

    I can’t believe she is 45 years old. She looks so good. Unlike her peers she did not have to choose between face & ass; as both still look on point.

    • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

      She looks younger than some starlets in their twenties and wonder if her not yo yo dieting could have something to do with this.

  25. Fyofeelings says:

    People love to say she’s crazy but from the look of these comments she’s not the only one.

    • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:


      I’m not saying I’m some kind of omniscient earth mother, trenchant social commentator, custody battler extraordinare or gifted therapist, I’m just saying that this is weird to me.

      First stop: Slough Of Despond
      Second stop: Vanity Fair
      Third Stop: Doubting Castle
      Destination: This place whenever there’s a Halle Berry post.

      I’d never say that she hasn’t done a lot of crazy and destructive things to a lot of people because that would be categorically false, but I guess it’s my turn to not have any qualms about saying that this place gets transformed into a circus maximus display where she’s concerned. I don’t care for her acting work and find a lot of her choices baffling but for all of the ‘What about the baby, what about her welfare?’ griping, so many people have magically forgotten about the child now that the rejoicing has commenced.

      Why is it that karma is only evoked in relation to swift and serious harm, what’s so noble about that? The woman is and has been seriously unhinged, okay, but the orgiastic glee over a serious head injury? Is that necessary?

      I wish I had a time machine so that I could move all of the custody battles of yesteryear into to the blogging age, just to see how people would react to say, Kim Bassinnger or Goldie Hawn.

  26. Chicagogurl17 says:

    I missed her curls. Love them.

  27. dorothy says:

    Maybe it will knock some sense into this stupid woman.

  28. foozy says:

    it takes more than a minor injury to knock sense into this idiot…

  29. Samantha says:

    Münchausen syndrome.

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      @Samantha: I’ve actually wondered the same thing for years. I hear the ‘Oopsie! She’s just clumsy’ excuse, but it seems like everytime this woman makes a movie she gets injured. Knowing what a drama queen she is in real life I’ve often wondered if there isn’t more behind the frequent injuries. :(

      • Samantha says:

        Either that or she’s the unluckiest actress out there. What are the chances that she would get injured on every movie set? Or go through so many dramas and traumas? Weird.

    • buckley says:

      I’m SO glad someone said it.

    • lena80 says:

      Please don’t. She is a diabetic and diabetics are prone to having weak bones. A simple fall can result in a fracture or break.

      She broke her arm on set one time, had glass fly in her eye during a stunt, and broke her foot like last year. How does that qualify her for Münchausen syndrome? Actors get hurt on movie sets, it’s not a syndrome. The only “syndromes” I see around here are pseudo doctors diagnosing conditions of people they have never examined.

      • Samantha says:

        Sure, actors get injured. But how many other actors get injured as frequently as she does? Or have bizarre hit and runs, or public tirades, or wear a cast/brace for more than six months (though I’ll grant that could be due to diabetes complications)? It’s always some new trauma with Halle.

      • lena80 says:

        Now you are reaching because you have no rebuttal for the topic you created. Münchausen syndrome has nothing to do with public tirades or hit and run(s). You exaggerate or create illness, illness being the key word, for sympathy.

        If people want to pseudo diagnose a person over the internet they need have some knowledge of the syndrome they are applying to the person. She’s a diabetic, bones break easily for them. The two other known accidents she has had on sets are not out the realm of possibility for actors. If you want to know what actors have been hurt on set 2+ times, I suggest you google it, it’s quite common.

  30. Feebee says:

    Man, if this was ever a ‘if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all’ item.

    • maggiegrace says:

      A-effing-men. I’m about as snarky as they come, but even I won’t go there. The woman’s been injured, give her a pass.

      • RHONYC says:

        i’ll pass alright…on that ridic ‘Sideshow Bob’ hairdo she’s running in the ground! it just screams frumpy mom-jeans lady to me, i dunno. :-(

        funny, when she was with Aubry, she actually kept herself pulled together.

        anyhoo, speedy supermom healing 2 Halle, no salt. ;-)

  31. anon says:

    I hope she gets well soon. How upsetting for Nahla. I think we should all be humble and grateful each day, it seems people forget tomorrow is not promised to anyone;there are no guarantees. Hope she is grateful that Nahla has another parent who loves her and can care for her.

  32. Johnny says:

    Karma! It can be a b!tch…

  33. S.joy says:

    Some of these comments are disturbing…

  34. S.joy says:

    I’m 100% sure that if something like this happened to Fassbender, or another celeb that people on this site worship, the response would be TOTALLY different.

    • lena80 says:

      Totally agree…and Fassbender is an ALLEGED abuser who hooked up with the woman who filed and later dropped charges against him which earned a forever side eye from me. Something in the milk wasn’t clean about that situation, but other people on this site are too enamored with his impeccable jawline to see otherwise.

  35. Happy21 says:

    Am I a bad person if I said I don’t give a crap? She’s a vile, horrible human being and I had to force myself to even read this thread…

  36. Celebasshat says:

    Im all for calling pple out on their craziness but if u wish death on anybody then u are as crazy as they come. Get well soon Halle

  37. ladybert62 says:

    Her hair looks awful – maybe they will have to shave her head to heal her head injury and then that mop-head will be gone!

  38. Kat says:

    Alright, i don’t like her at all, not like an actress not like a person, but nobody deserves something like this, even a vindictive person. She may be clumsy o whatever, but a head injury can be a serious trouble, so i think, no kidding about dying o or something like that.

  39. TXCinderella says:

    If she has a head injury, she will be unable to care for little Nahla. Time for Gabe to swoop in and save Nahla from that wacko, although maybe a blow to the head might knock some sense into her.

  40. Mooshi says:

    Maybe now she will get rid of that hair-style. It ages her so much.

    She looks fantastic with super short haircuts.

  41. buckley says:

    Maybe she will have one of those “The Vow” type of injuries and doesn’t remember Olivier.
    “Where’s Gabriel”

  42. skuddles says:

    Hopefully for Halle’s (and everyone’s) sake, it’s not a serious injury. I’ve heard of people before suffering bad head blows only to exhibit some disturbing behavior later. My aunt being one. She was always a bit of a tense babe but after she fell and struck her head hard (resulting in a few minutes of unconsciousness) she turned into a raging, unpredictable bitch. It was scary to see the change in her personality….

    Side note – HATE Halle’s hair do. That’s just a big bowl of wrong.

  43. anon says:

    Halle is out of the hospital. Glad she is alright. I wish both Halle and Nahla’s dad a long healthy life. They have a child to raise. I felt terrible for Natasha’s son’s when their mom passed tragically. It was bad for her entire family but the boys with out their mom was/is the saddest to me. Real happy Nahla’s mommy is OK.

  44. A says:

    Some of you people are seriously insane and you call Halle crazy? Look, I’m not even a fan of hers, in fact, I found her public trashing of her daughters father to be disgusting but I will never wish death or harm on the woman! For goodness sake, she has a daughter that still needs her mother.

    Some of you should be ashamed of yourselves…and Karma? Karma right back at you for wishing horrible things on another person.

    • skuddles says:

      I haven’t read every single comment but I have yet to see one where someone is wishing death on Halle… except one comment meant in sarcasm (and only because they misinterpreted someone else’s comment). I don’t believe anyone is wishing death on Halle or even taking delight in the fact she was hurt, they’re just not overly sympathetic is all.

  45. samira677 says:

    It’s really creepy and sad that so many people are happy that Halle was injured. Ironic that the same people who are so happy about this news are the same ones who are calling her crazy.

  46. Nava says:

    At first glance, I thought it was ‘Willona’ from “Good Times.” ……..Hope HB recovers, head injuries are no joke. I went to an amusement park, rode the coasters, and on the way out, I started to vomit non-stop, could not stop shaking. Thankfully, the best hospital in the area was mins away and after some tests, and a few days inpatient, I was told it was from the coasters, my brain bouncing around in my skull from the force of the coasters. Scary sh-t…..fine now, just migraines every now and then. :-)

    • skuddles says:

      Yikes, sounds scary! That’s one of the reasons I won’t go on those kinds of rides, they always make me feel sick.

  47. Michelle says:

    This is really weird because Kristin Chenoweth had a similar incident though I don’t know if she had a concussion. I’ve had one and they hurt like hell. Hope she’s feeling a lot better though.
