More regarding Winona’s illness

Thursday, Nov 20, 2008

At the first place, this was NOT confirmed by her assistant. So, may be true or a simply especulation of newspapers trying to get some hit traffic.

The DailyMail has some pictures of Winona before boarding yesterday, still in LAX airport.

According to this publication, Ryder is thought to have collapsed twice on board the transatlantic BA flight after taking too many Xantax pills for anxiety. She is known to be afraid of flying and it is suggested she took the tranquilisers to calm her nerves.

She was taken to Hillingdon hospital, in West London, soon after arriving in England just after noon. Although her publicist refused to confirm the nature of the star’s illness last night, she said her client was discharged an hour later ‘in good health’.

Mara Buxbaum said: ‘She did fall ill on a plane and as a precautionary measure they took her to hospital.

‘She was there for an hour. She’s in good health. There’s no drama.’

We hope Winona gets well soon, and I hope she go to Spain, to receive her prize that she really deserves.
