Hilary Swank is "recovering" following a minor operation to remove a "small, benign growth".
The 34-year-old actress visited hospital and was forced to undergo the procedure after experiencing some "discomfort", but is now back at home.
Hilary's manager Jason Weinberg said: "Hilary went to see her doctor, who prescribed an immediate course of action that included a brief hospitalisation to remove a small, benign growth.
"Her condition has been resolved and there are no continuing health issues, with the exception of some short-term rest and recuperation."
No other details of the operation were revealed.
It was recently revealed the Oscar-winning actress - who lost a huge amount of weight to star in 2004 movie 'Million Dollar Baby' - will pile on the pounds for her role in the upcoming movie adaptation of Mireille Guiliano's best-selling book 'French Women Don't Get Fat'.
A movie insider said: "She'll gain 20 to 30lbs. But it's no sweat. She has played a man before in 'Boys Don't Cry'. She can handle anything."
Hilary will play the manager of a champagne company in the film, which she is also producing.
The movie follows several slim French women who eat calorific treats including bread, wine and cakes and never put on weight.
