LONDON - Diane Keaton suffered a dizzying bout of vertigo last year, before she was injured in a wrestling accident on the set of new movie Morning Glory, it has emerged.
The 64-year-old suffered a bang to her head while shooting scenes dressed as a sumo wrestler over the summer in June 2009.

In an interview with NBC’s ‘The Tonight Show’ Keaton elaborated on her condition revealing she was struck with vertigo-a condition that makes the sufferer feel unbalanced and dizzy.
“I did get hurt. I fell on my head like humpty dumpty and I cracked it,” the Daily Express quoted her as saying.
“I got vertigo. They sent me to the hospital but I’m okay now. I can still talk,” she said. (ANI)
