Keaton suffered vertigo before wrestling accident

The 64 year old suffered a bang to her head while shooting scenes dressed as a sumo wrestler over the summer (Jun09).

The actress’ representative revealed at the time she was taken to hospital in New York for “precautionary tests” and was cleared by doctors to return to work the next day.

But Keaton elaborated on her condition during American comedian Jay Leno’s late night chat show on Friday (12Nov10), revealing she was struck with vertigo – a condition which makes the sufferer feel unbalanced and dizzy.

Laughing off the incident, she revealed: “I did get hurt. I fell on my head like humpty dumpty and I cracked it…

“I got vertigo. They sent me to the hospital but I’m okay now. I can still talk.”
