Publicist: Winona Ryder hospitalized in UK

LONDON (AP) -- Winona Ryder's publicist says the actress was briefly hospitalized after falling ill on a flight to London's Heathrow Airport.

Publicist Mara Buxbaum says the 37-year-old was taken to a west London hospital as a precaution Wednesday but has been released and is fine. Buxbaum refused to go into details of Ryder's illness.

British Airways said a flight from Los Angeles to Heathrow requested priority landing when a female passenger it did not identify required medical attention.
