Actress Parker Posey has undergone surgery after breaking her wrist in a fall at her home.

The Superman Returns star was painting a wall at her new home when she fell from a ladder this summer (14). She subsequently underwent surgery and physiotherapy sessions amid fears the injury could affect her work on Woody Allen's new film, which she has been shooting in Rhode Island over the last few weeks.

She tells the New York Post, "I fell off a ladder during the time I was with Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix in Rhode Island doing Woody Allen's new movie. I'd sold my city apartment and bought a big house upstate with huge space. Having turned myself into a pretzel, I was painting my third room. Alone. By myself. Eager to get the job done, I fell off the ladder and broke my wrist. Big break. Five days later it needed surgery and four therapy sessions.

"I told Woody it was a big break, so everyone sent specialists. What I learned is, you break something and you meet new people."
