LOS ANGELES, Oct. 23 (UPI) -- Michael Madsen's publicist said the Hollywood actor was hospitalized for food poisoning and exhaustion, not placed on a psychiatric hold, as has been reported.

"Madsen just got off a plane from overseas after a grueling work schedule. He was suffering from food poisoning and extreme exhaustion and basically collapsed," his representative Liza Anderson told E! News. "He is resting now with his family by his side."

TMZ Wednesday reported the 50-year-old actor was hospitalized this week on an involuntary psychiatric hold after a family member called police due to his alleged erratic behavior. The entertainment news Web site said the actor was picked up at his home by Los Angeles sheriff's deputies Monday afternoon and taken to a hospital.

Madsen is best known for his roles in the films "Reservoir Dogs," "Donnie Brasco" and "Kill Bill." He is also the brother of "A Prairie Home Companion," "Sideways" and "Creator" star Virginia Madsen.
