Winona Ryder


Winona Ryder was briefly hospitalized Wednesday, November 19, for an undisclosed illness and has since been "released in good health."

Mara Buxbaum, a publicist for Winona Ryder, has confirmed the actress is "fine" following a brief hospitalization for an undisclosed illness. The movie star, according to reports, fell ill on a flight from Los Angeles to London's Heathrow Airport Wednesday, November 19, prompting the airplane to perform a special landing.

British Airways officials reportedly requested priority landing because a female passenger "required medical attention". A spokesperson for the airline told the press, "Our cabin crew looked after the female passenger as much as they could onboard and our passenger services staff also accompanied her to the local hospital. We wish her well" when referring to Winona.

Transported to a West London hospital "as a precaution", Winona was treated for about an hour and has since been "released in good health." The nature of her illness has not been disclosed.

Winona Ryder gained her critical and commercial recognition playing the role of Lydia in "Beetlejuice" (1988). She portrays the role of Amanda Grayson in the upcoming science-fiction, action, adventure flick "Star Trek." The film is slated for May 8, 2009 U.S. release date.
