Actress Kate Beckinsale has been hospitalised after suffering a ruptured ovarian cyst.

The actress, 45, took to social media on Saturday night to share Instagram posts from inside a hospital, where she was being treated, reports dailymail.co.uk.

"Turns out a ruptured ovarian cyst really hurts and morphine makes me cry," she wrote, adding that she was "so thankful to everyone who looked after me" with hashtag #wobbly.

The hospitalisation came just three nights after the London native made a special appearance at a hospital fundraiser at the LA Art Show held at the Los Angeles Convention Center here.
