Kate Winslet ‘rushed to hospital’ after sustaining injury on film set in Croatia

Titanic star Kate Winslet has apparently been taken to hospital after sustaining an injury while filming on set. Reports say the star injured her leg while filming in a village called Kupari, which is located in Croatia. 


Kate, 46, was reportedly rushed to Dubrovnik Hospital which is 15 minutes away.

She arrived at the hospital in a black van and pictures show she was surrounded by many other people as she made her way in. 

According to the Croatian press, the Mare of Easttown star walked into the hospital wearing black clothes and a face mask.

Express.co.uk have contacted Kate’s representatives for comment, who provided an update on the situation.


A spokesperson told Express.co.uk: “Kate slipped and was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure required by the production. 

“She is fine and will be filming, as planned, this week.”

Kate is currently shooting a film about a wartime photographer from Vogue magazine, Lee Miller.

The World War II correspondent for British Vogue was a celebrated photographer who worked under the magazine’s formidable editor-in-chief Audrey Withers.

The film will be directed by Oscar-nominated talent Ellen Kuras, who has previously worked on high profile films such as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

The movie’s cast includes some big names, like Jude Law, Josh O’Connor and Marion Cotillard.

The project has been titled Lee and will take inspiration from the biography The Lives of Lee Miller by Antony Penrose.

Antony is Lee’s son, whom she shared with her second husband Roland Penrose, a historian and champion of the Surrealist movement.

Lee might have perhaps been best known as the muse and lover of the Surrealist artist Man Ray.

However, thanks to the work of her son to promote her incredible legacy as a fashion and war photographer, her reputation has been recovered as an artist in her own right.

Kate has been cast in the lead role, while Jude will play Roland and Josh will portray Antony. 

Audrey Withers will be played by actress Andrea Riseborough, while Marion Cotillard will star as director of French Vogue, Solange D’Ayen.


Kate is an award–winning actress, best known for her role as Rose in the film Titanic.

The James Cameron movie presented a fictionalised version of the famous tragedy and also starred Leonardo DiCaprio.

She also recently won critical acclaim for her role in HBO show Mare of Easttown.

The show centres around a detective from Pennsylvania, as she tries her best to prevent her life from falling apart while investigating a mysterious murder.
