When contacted by Access, a rep for Beckinsale said the reason the actress had gone to the hospital was to accompany her assistant who sprained her ankle.

Beckinsale is currently in Memphis shooting the drama “Nothing But The Truth,” alongside Matt Dillon and David Schwimmer.

The film follows a Capitol Hill reporter (Beckinsale) who faces going to jail for outing a CIA agent and refusing to reveal her source.

“Nothing But The Truth” is slated to hit theaters in September 2008.

In other Beckinsale news, it was recently announced she would not be returning for the upcoming third installment of the “Underworld” franchise.

Beckinsale starred in the first two “Underworld” films, which grossed more than $200 million combined worldwide. However, she will not appear in the upcoming film, “Underworld 3: The Rise of the Lycans,” which serves as a prequel to the first two.

It was also announced that Beckinsale’s husband, Len Wiseman, would not return as director of the next “Underworld” film, however, he will stay on board as producer.

“Underworld 3: The Rise of the Lycans” starts production in January in Auckland, New Zealand.
