Kate Winslet returned to production this week after she fell on set Sunday while filming her latest movie, “Lee,” on location in Croatia.
The 46-year-old actress was taken to the hospital for precautionary measures after she sustained some kind of leg injury while filming the World War II movie in a village called Kupari, Entertainment Tonight Canada reported.
“Kate [Winslet] slipped and was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure required by the production,” a statement from the “Titanic” star’s rep to the ET outlet read. “She is fine and will be filming, as planned, this week.”

Pictures have since surfaced showing the Academy Award-winning actress back on set wearing military attire for her portrayal of World War II correspondent Lee Miller, specifically the part of her life and career during the war which took her from the pages of fashion to the front line.
A description of the movie on IMDb read, “The story of photographer Elizabeth ‘Lee’ Miller, a fashion model who became an acclaimed war correspondent for Vogue magazine during World War II.”
“This is absolutely not a biopic,” Winslet told Deadline previously. “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.”

“It was the period from 1938-1948 that took her right through the war and her most defining time,” she added. “That is the story we want people to know about Lee more than the many other parts of her life.”
“Lee” is being directed by Ellen Kuras and along with Winslet stars such big names as Jude Law, Josh O’Conner, and Marion Cotillard, among others.
Winslet’s latest project will debut on the big screen in December when the highly anticipated sequel to the 2009 hit “Avatar” hits theaters, the “Today” show noted. “Avatar: The Way of Water,” is due out December 16.
