LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Cancer stricken actress
Farrah Fawcett was released from the hospital Thursday,
following treatment for bleeding resulting from a medical
procedure in Germany, celebrity magazine People reported.

Fawcett, 62, suffered light bleeding in one of the muscles
of her abdomen after arriving in Los Angeles from Germany late
last week and checked into an unidentified hospital.

On Thursday, her physician, Lawrence Piro, told People
Fawcett had left the hospital and was looking forward to
celebrating Easter at home.

Neither Piro nor a representative for Fawcett could be late
reached Thursday afternoon to confirm the report.

Fawcett, who suffers from anal cancer, gained fame in the
1970s as a pinup model and an original cast member of the hit
television show "Charlie's Angels." She earned Emmy nominations
for her TV roles in 1984's "The Burning Bed," 1989's "Small
Sacrifices" and 2001's "The Guardian."
