(Newser) – Winona Ryder became ill during a flight from Los Angeles to London today and had to be briefly hospitalized after touching down, Access Hollywood reports. The 37-year-old actress is feeling fine now, says a rep, who did not shed light on what caused the scare. It was serious enough, however, that the pilot requested a priority landing for a sick passenger.

"She did fall ill on a flight and as a precautionary measure, was taken to a hospital," said a spokeswoman. "She was there maybe an hour and was released. The bottom line is she is in good health."
