Halle Berry missed Oscar ceremony due to injured leg

Los Angeles: Actress Halle Berry pulled out of the Oscars ceremony due to her broken foot.

The 45-year-old was set to present alongside actor Tom Hanks at the 84th Annual Academy Awards in Hollywood Sunday but cancelled her appearance because of the injury, reports thesun.co.uk

Halle suffered the injury back in September whilst filming "Cloud Atlas" in Spain.

The accident occurred while she was walking in Majorca on a day off from filming, said a statement from Warner Bros.

Even after six months, Halle, who is rumoured to be planning to move to France to be with boyfriend French actor Olivier Martinez, was pictured wearing a brace boot on her right leg just last week, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

It is not the first time that she has hurt herself on set.

She broke her arm whilst making "Gothika" in 2003, during a `physical scene`, and she is also believed to have been hit by a boom on the set of 2004`s "Catwoman", said a spokesperson from Warner Bros.

Halle won the Oscar for the best actress in 2002 for her work in `Monster`s Ball`.
