Although Kate has kept the details of what happened under wraps, according to Page Six, the British star began complaining of a pain in her back on Friday morning before being taken by ambulance to a local emergency room, where she is being monitored by doctors.

Helmed by Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, Kate's new movie will see her join forces with Succession star Brian Cox. The film tells the story of a tough but proud ex-con who's struggling to find a way to reconnect with his only daughter and grandson; once he begins an attempt at reconciliation, his violent past once again catches up to him.
