Melanie Griffith is recuperating after undergoing surgery to remove cancerous cells from her face.
Griffith, 52, had the procedure done early enough "to prevent further complications," her spokeswoman Robin Baum tells the Associated Press. She was left with a black eye after the surgery.
The actress checked into rehab earlier this summer -- but it wasn't because she was struggling with an addiction. "She is there to reinforce her commitment to stay healthy," her rep said then of her rehab stint.
Griffith will appear on the next season of the hit FX series "Nip/Tuck."
In a visit to "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," actor Antonio Banderas said it was his wife Melanie Griffith's own decision to admit herself to rehab after pain medication following surgery caused some concern.
Griffith, 52, was clean for six years, then she was injured in a skiing accident a year and a half ago. Three operations on her knee required the actress to start using narcotics.
Banderas, 49, tells Ellen DeGeneres, "In March, she came to me and said, 'I'm feeling a little bit weak in my determination for this... so I just thought to go to rehabilitation by myself.'" The actor says their whole family is behind her, "this particular time more than ever," adding, "I'm very proud of her."
Banderas also has advice for families struggling with addiction. "Don't get embarrassed, just confront this problem head-on. And don't hide from that because there is a beautiful gift at the end of this tunnel, and it is the person that you love back, and that is what I am searching for."
Antonio Banderas' interview airs Wednesday on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."
