LATEST: OSCAR-winning actress Charlize Theron has returned to her Los Angeles home after suffering an injury on the German set of her upcoming movie Aeon Flux.

While her injury to her neck, which she sustained on Monday (30AUG04), has not been deemed serious enough to warrant hospitalisation, they're still significant enough for production on the movie to be shut down for several weeks while Theron recovers.

The MONSTER beauty, who has been doing her own stunts on the sci-fi thriller, has returned home so she can be seen by her own doctors and to recuperate.

Aeon Flux is set centuries in the future at a time when a plague has wiped out most of the population.

Theron plays the title character - a sleek, sexy commando who is part of a rebellion against the remaining government.
