OSCAR-winning actress Charlize Theron has suffered an injury while shooting stunts for her upcoming movie Aeon Flux in Germany.

Filming in Berlin has been halted to allow her to recover, following the Monday (30AUG04) mishap. It's not yet known if the injury will require script changes or when the movie will resume production.

Theron's publicist AMANDA SILVERMAN says she had no information about the cause or severity of the accident, but stresses the 29-year-old MONSTER beauty wasn't hospitalised.

Silverman says, "She did sustain an injury on the set. It's a very physically demanding role."

Aeon Flux is set centuries in the future at a time when a plague has wiped out most of the population. Theron plays the title character - a sleek, sexy commando who is part of a rebellion against the remaining government.
