For those that aren't aware, “an ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled sac that forms on or inside an ovary. In some cases, the cyst can break open (rupture).” Symptoms include “pain in the lower belly and bleeding,” and “in rare cases, a ruptured ovarian cyst may need surgery,” according to John Hopkins Medicine.

While majority of the comments that the Pearl Harbor star received were nice and comforting, there were some people that called her out for sharing the hospital photos. One troll said, “But first let me take a selfie.”

“It’s actually not a selfie,” Kate responded. “My mum took it. In fact I would not have posted it if we had not noticed someone in a car taking a photo of me leaving the hospital in a wheelchair.”

“I have Instagram largely to have my own honest narrative and not have to always be ambushed by stories that come out that are invented, I’d prefer to say what happened than endure speculation and so I chose to share,” she explained.

The 45-year-old continued, “I agree, it’s not a normal impulse. But it’s not normal to be photographed in vulnerable situations by people you don’t know either. (If you were interested in knowing the provenance of this, which, you probably are not.)"
