LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actress Angelina Jolie was hospitalized briefly on Friday after suffering a minor injury while shooting an action sequence in Long Island, New York, for her upcoming film "Salt," the studio behind the film said.

Her hospitalization was a "precautionary measure," and she was soon out of the medical facility and back on the set, said a spokesman for Columbia Pictures.

Jolie, who was nominated for a best actress Oscar for her role last year in "Changeling," is in a romantic partnership with actor Brad Pitt. The globe-trotting couple, dubbed Brangelina in the media, is raising six children together.

Spy thriller "Salt" is expected to be released next year.
