Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf has been released from hospital after suffering an injury on set of his new movie American Honey.

The 29-year-old was filming a scene on 24 June on the North Dakota set, which required him to perform his own stunt by putting his head through a plate glass window, TMZ reports.

However, a mistake was made resulting in LaBeouf receiving a cut to the left side of his head and his right index finger.

After being transported to a nearby hospital, the Transformers star is said to have received 20 stitches and 13 staples to his injuries.

A representative for the actor confirmed the accident and revealed he had been sent home after receiving treatment.

The statement reads: "Shia LaBeouf sustained minimal injuries late last night on the set of his current film, American Honey.

"As protocol, production sought out medical attention and Shia received stitches on his hand and for a laceration on his head. He is due back on set [Thursday 25 June]."

American Honey is being directed by British film-maker Andrea Arnold and will also star Arielle Holmes and McCaul Lombardi.

The story follows a teenage girl who joins a travel magazine sales crew who gets caught up in a whirlwind of partying, young love and crime when she crosses the Midwest with a group of misfits.

In addition to American Honey, LaBeouf will also be starring in Man Down alongside Kate Mara, Gary Oldman and Jai Courtney.

The Nymphomaniac star will play a US Marine on the hunt for his lost son in a post-apocalyptic America. Man Down is set for release on 30 October 2015.
