Michelle Pfeiffer broke her arm after slipping as she was getting out of the bath.

The 61-year-old actress was taking a hot soak in her hotel room during a break from media commitments for her new movie, Disney film Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, when she lost her footing on the wet floor as she stepped out of the tub.

Recalling the accident on US TV show Extra, Pfeiffer said: “I was at the hotel and I got out (of the bath) and I saw really slippery marble floors … and I said to myself, ‘Self, slippery floor, be careful…'”

Pfeiffer plays the evil Queen Ingrith and stars alongside Angelina Jolie, who reprises her role as titular fairy Maleficient and Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora, also known as Sleeping Beauty. Pfeiffer admits shooting the fantasy film was great fun and she got on great with her co-stars, especially Jolie.

“We laughed a lot. [I’d say to Angelina], ‘You’re in horns.’,” the Batman Returns star said.
