Winona Ryder OD'd on Xanax during flight



Time for your Juice* update on forgotten actresses: After yesterday's news that Winona Ryder was taken to the hospital following a flight to London from L.A., the U.K.'s Sun serves the skinny that the problem was taking too many pills. Surprises!

Tbdwinonaryder112108 The 37-year-old apparently had a fear of flying and may have accidentally taken too many Xanax, the paper says. She allegedly collapsed twice during the 10-hour flight.

"She turned a deathly shade of pale," an unnamed passenger said. "It was scary."

The flight landed 22 minutes early on a priority landing (not emergency) and Ryder was taken to Hillingdon Hospital, where she was checked in under a false name.

"Our passenger services staff went with her to hospital," British Airways said, omitting its articles in a proper show of reservation. "We wish her well." She'll need those well wishes, if rumors that she had her stomach pumped at the hospital are true.
