Kate Winslet suffered a leg injury on the set of her new project, Lee, over the weekend. She was filming in the village of Kupari in Croatia when she slipped and fell.

Following the incident, the actress sought treatment at Dubrovnik Hospital, where was examined and then cleared to leave.

A representative for the Titanic star said in a statement, “Kate slipped and was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure required by the production.” They emphasized, “She is fine and will be filming, as planned, this week.”

Luckily, it seems like her representative was correct, and Winslet seems to be in recovery now — since her fall, she’s already been spotted back on set.

Lee is a historical drama that centers renowned photographer, World War II correspondent and fashion model Lee Miller. Winslet stars in the film as the titular character.

In October 2021, the Oscar winner explained to Deadline that the film is “absolutely not a biopic.”

She elaborated, “To make a story about Lee’s whole life, that’s a series worth for HBO. What we wanted to do was find the most interesting decade in her life, the one that defined who she was and what she became because of what she went through.”

Winslet noted that her character “has been misunderstood and so often viewed through the lens of a man, through a male gaze because she started her life as a model and was very beautiful.”

She added, “Lee was the woman who was documenting war for women, through women’s eyes, for a women’s magazine.”

Ellen Kuras is the director of the film, and Marion Cotillard, Jude Law, Andrea Riseborough and Josh O’Connor star in the project alongside Winslet.

There is no release date for Lee just yet, but the feminist film will come out in 2023.
