Kate Beckinsale Hospitalised For Ruptured Ovarian Cyst

Stars show support

Kate Beckinsale was hospitalised after suffering a ruptured ovarian cyst, she revealed on Instagram over the weekend. The 45-year-old actress shared two photos from her hospital bed. One shows her looking pained with an oxygen tube in her nose, while another shows her lying on her side in bed by a sheet surrounded by medical equipment. 

“Turns out a ruptured ovarian cyst really hurts and morphine makes me cry. So thankful to everyone who looked after me,” she captioned the shots, adding “#wobbly.”

The actress replied to one individual who commented on the post, “But first let me take a selfie.”

“It’s actually not a selfie,” Beckinsale wrote. “My mum took it. In fact I would not have posted it if we had not noticed someone in a car taking a photo of me leaving the hospital in a wheelchair.”

“I have Instagram largely to have my own honest narrative and not have to always be ambushed by stories that come out that are invented, I’d prefer to say what happened than endure speculation and so I chose to share,” she continued, explaining why she posted the private moment. “I agree, it’s not a normal impulse. But it’s not normal to be photographed in vulnerable situations by people you don’t know either. (If you were interested in knowing the provenance of this, which, you probably are not.).”

Kate also added, “Thank you so much to everyone who has wished me well and lots of love to all the girls here who have been through similar or worse. Love to all x.”

Sarah Silverman, David Spade, Isla Fisher, Kevin Nealon, Courtney Love, Keith Lemon, Rose McGowan, Sara Foster, Olympian Lindsey Vonn and singer Natalie Imbruglia were just some of the many stars who shared heartfelt messages.
