Kate Winslet Gets Basketball Bruise

Kate Winslet has injured herself playing basketball.

The 34-year-old actress was left badly bruised following the accident - which she sustained while playing with her children, Mia, nine, and Joe, six - and filming on her new five-hour long mini-series 'Mildred Pierce' has been suspended as a result.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: "She fell after being hit by a basketball and suffered bruising that couldn't be covered with make-up, so the entire production was halted on Monday (24.05.10)."

A representative for the Oscar-winning star confirmed the accident but added she is "fine".

Earlier this year, Kate announced she was separating from her husband of six years Sam Mendes and was reported in March to be ready to move back to the UK after a period of living in New York with the film director.

A source said: "Kate really wants to leave the apartment. She feels it is tainted."
