Emma Stone is recovering after falling and injuring herself.

A source close to the actress tells PEOPLE Stone, 30, hurt her shoulder after “slipping on a floor” at a home.

It is currently not clear if the painful incident took place at a property where she is staying in London ahead of her new film project or another residence.

The accident did not happen at a Spice Girls reunion concert, says the source, despite a report that Stone broke her shoulder after tumbling off a pal’s shoulders while watching her favorite band.

Spice Girls member Emma Bunton shared an Instagram photo of herself with Stone following a show on June 13.

“When Emma met Emma,” Bunton, 43, wrote in the caption of the photos, and she added the hashtag “#2become1” in reference to the group’s 1996 hit of that name.

A report in the Sun also claimed that the injury has negatively impacted her role in Disney’s live-action film Cruella because she was ordered by doctors to rest for two months. But another insider tells PEOPLE that her injury will not affect her upcoming role.

“Production hadn’t started so this is not causing any major issues. They are still in pre-production and she’ll begin once healed,” the insider adds.

According to Variety, Stone will play Cruella De Vil, the villain who repeatedly tried to capture the puppies in 101 Dalmatians.

Emma Thompson is in early talks to star opposite Stone, Variety reported.

Earlier this month, it was announced that Easy A, Stone’s breakthrough 2010 teen comedy, is making its return as a spin-off, The Hollywood Reporter revealed.

Stone starred as high schooler Olive Penderghast, who takes inspiration from The Scarlet Letter to enhance her social standings to mixed results.

Bert Royal, the screenwriter of the original film, is writing the new script that will be set once again at Ojai North High School in California. The spinoff will feature new students dealing with the struggles of high school and teenage life.

The film was Stone’s first lead role in a film and shot her into stardom. She also earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress.

Stone followed up Easy A with further success in hit films such as Crazy, Stupid, Love, The Help, and Birdman. She won the Oscar for Best Actress in 2017 for La La Land.
