Hilary Swank is back home and recovering following a brief hospitalization for what her manager, Jason Weinberg, cited as a minor medical procedure to remove a small growth. Breaking the news of her hospitalization to People magazine, Jason did not provide further details of the actress' exact illness and recent health progress.
Jason simply told the magazine, Swank was "experiencing some discomfort and went to see her doctor, who prescribed an immediate course of action that included a brief hospitalization to remove a small, benign growth." Jason went on revealing, "her condition has been resolved and there are no continuing health issues, with the exception of some short-term rest and recuperation."
Swank recently completed the filming of the drama biography "Amelia". After that she was seen spending most of her time with fellow A-list celebrities in New York during Fashion Week before then returned to Los Angeles.
An Oscar-winning actress, Swank is billed to play the lead role in "Amelia," which is slated for an October 23, 2009 release date. Her co-stars in the big screen movie among others are Ewan McGregor, Richard Gere, and Virginia Madsen.
