Actress too bruised to continue working


Kate Winslet was left badly bruised after a game of basketball in New York over the weekend.

The actress was shooting hoops with her kids Mia, 9, and Joe, 6, on Sunday night when she was knocked on the head with the ball.

Filming of Kate‘s new TV series Mildred Pierce was suspended on Monday so she could recover.

‘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,’ says a source.

Oscar-winner Kate, 34, is now resting at her home in the Big Apple.

‘She is fine,’ her rep confirms to the New York Post.
Kate and director husband Sam Mendes, 44, announced their separation in March.
