Report says Catherine Zeta-Jones injured on Houdini movie set

Okay, this is a trash story, I know, and as with most stories that come from UK tabloids, there’s probably only a fraction of truth to it. But at least it confirms Death Defying Acts is finally in production!

Los Angeles, CA (BANG) - Catherine Zeta-Jones was said to have been in extreme agony after having a toenail ripped off on her new movie set. The Welsh actress was filming a scene for "Death Defying Acts," a biopic about legendary escapologist Harry Houdini, at London's Savoy hotel, when a strong, heavy-built member of the crew accidentally stepped on her foot.

A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper, "It virtually took the toenail clean off. The nurse was called in. She was in pain but didn't have a tantrum."

Executive producer Dan Lupovitz played down the incident, saying the brunette beauty-who stars alongside Guy Pearce in the movie-quickly recovered from the toe mishap.

"It was as minor incident which hardly disrupted filming. She's fine," he said.
