Winona Ryder hospitalized briefly

Movie actress Winona Ryder fell ill during a flight from Los Angeles to London Wednesday and was taken to a hospital when the plane landed, her publicist said.

TMZ reported the actress complained she was sick on the flight, but felt better by the time the plane landed as scheduled.

Medics reportedly were waiting for Ryder when the flight was over and she was taken to a London hospital as a precaution.

Ryder's publicist told People magazine the actress spent about an hour at the hospital, then was released in good health.

Ryder is best known for her roles in Lucas, Beetlejuice, Heathers, Little Women, Edward Scissorhands, Bram Stoker's Dracula, The Age of Innocence, Reality Bites, Girl, Interrupted and Mr. Deeds.
