The Girl Interrupted star told Bulgari jewelers that she ‘misplaced’ the gems that were on loan to her for a Marie Claire bash. She then told authorities that she lost track of the baubles after handing them in an envelope to her hotel’s front desk for safe-keeping.
French celebrity-news magazine, Voici, reported that no hotel surveillance cameras captured Ryder giving the jewels to front-desk personnel.
Ryder’s European trip got off to a shaky start last week, when the actress fell ill on a Los Angeles-to-London flight, forcing pilots into a fast landing at Heathrow Airport.
Medics greeted the 37-year-old actress at the gate and rushed her to a west London hospital, where she was treated and released within hours.
Ryder’s representative said the actress was fine, but didn’t elaborate on what ailment she had suffered.
Five-finger discount syndrome, perhaps?
