Halle Berry was injured on the set of "Bruised" but she chose to continue filming despite breaking two ribs.

The 54-year-old actress, who makes her directorial debut with the action movie, broke two ribs on the first day of shooting. She said it was physically taxing for her but she chose to continue filming considering the lean budget they had to work on as an independent film.

"I told the [John Wick] director about it, they told the insurance. We had to shut down for months and it was a big ordeal," Berry told Entertainment Weekly. "On [Bruised], because it was an independent movie, we didn't have a big budget. The director in me said, 'I didn't come this far and work this hard to go home.'"

It "is kind of a crazy injury. But that was just her intensity…. Halle's a special case. I've worked with tons of actors, and almost none of them have that kind of work ethic," fight choreographer and stunt coordinator Eric Brown told the outlet.

This is not the first time the Oscar-winning actress has suffered an on-set injury. She also fractured her ribs while filming the 2019 action film "John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum," ET reported.

In "Bruised," Berry plays the role of a disgraced mixed martial arts fighter, named Jackie Justice, who is fighting for the custody of her son amid an intimidating fight with an old foe in the ring.

The role was originally written for "Gossip Girl" star Blake Lively and the movie was supposed to be directed by Nick Cassavetes, who helmed "The Notebook" and "My Sister's Keeper."

Last year, Berry told EW that when the script came to her in 2017, her initial impression was that "it was written for a 25-year-old Irish Catholic girl." The actress said she was not sure of playing the part.

"I knew as written it could not be me, but what I loved about the story is it was classic fight film," she said at the time. "I loved the fractured brokenness of this character, and I love to see a film that's about redemption. I want to see the human spirit soar; I want to see someone rise above obstacles and still be standing at the end of the day."

Berry said she set out to "convince the producers, who had the rights to the movie, [that they] should let me reimagine it for a middle-aged Black woman."

She said producers allowed her to shape the story according to her vision.

"Bruised" will premiere on Netflix on Nov. 24.
