"Uma was in an equestrian accident. She was training on a young thoroughbred who got spooked," a rep for the actress tells WHO in a statement. "She was thrown and broke a few bones."
News of the accident, which was first reported by the New York Post's Page Six, came to the paper after the 46-year-old actress was spotted by a source with her children – Maya, 17, Levon Roan, 13, and Luna, 3 – "walking gingerly" into La Plage restaurant in St. Barts
Thurman is currently spending the summer in Europe. Last month, she was thrown in a different way, when Italian entrepreneur Lapo Elkann planted a kiss on her while at Cannes Film Festival's annual amfAR event
The Pulp Fiction star – who was serving at the evening's auction host – was said to be annoyed with the unexpected lip-lock, which came after the 38-year-old was celebrating his $196,000 auction prize.
"It is opportunism at its worst. She wasn't complicit in it," Thurman's rep told WHO at the time. "She is very unhappy that this happened to her and feels violated."
