FORT-DE-FRANCE, Martinique -- French actor Jean Reno has been released from a hospital in the Caribbean island of Martinique after falling ill.

Bernard Cavignaux is a director of the Center Hospitalier Universitaire de Fort-de-France where Reno was admitted. Cavignaux said Reno was vacationing in St. Barts when he became sick and was transferred by helicopter to Martinique's capital. He said the actor was advised to rest.

Reno publicist Christina Papadopoulos said the actor went to the hospital as a precaution after getting heartburn and gastroenteritis.

He was released Thursday.

The 60-year-old is best known for his roles in "The Da Vinci Code," "The Pink Panther" and "Mission: Impossible."
