Ruth Bader Ginsburg Returns Home Following Lung Surgery

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is back at home, five days after her lung surgery.

The 85-year-old Supreme Court Justice underwent a procedure to remove two nodules from her left lung, which were found after she fractured three ribs in November.

Ruth “was discharged from the hospital yesterday and is recuperating at home,” a court spokeswoman told People in a statement.

The court rep previously said that both nodules removed were found to be “malignant on initial pathology evaluation” and “there was no evidence of any remaining disease.”

Ruth has previously beat cancer twice – colorectal cancer in 1999 and pancreatic cancer in 2009.

Felicity Jones Talks Playing Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 'On the Basis of Sex' Amid #MeToo Movement

Felicity Jones strikes a stunning pose on the cover of the latest issue of Net-a-Porter’s digital magazine, PorterEdit!

Here’s what the 35-year-old Rogue One: A Star Wars Story actress had to share with the mag:

On why her new movie On the Basis of Sex feels timely in the current political climate: “We were filming it in the midst of the beginning of the #MeToo movement, and since then, with everything that’s happened with the Supreme Court, [Ruth Bader Ginsburg's] story feels even more pertinent.”

On being more conscious of the roles she chooses and being inspired by Reese Witherspoon producing Big Little Lies: “When you start out, you’re just trying to pay the rent, so you’re taking whatever comes along. But in the last few years, I’ve felt particularly inspired by people like Reese Witherspoon producing Big Little Lies, which shifted the cultural landscape. In many ways, I believe it allowed the #MeToo movement to have such a hold. […] We actors are circus performers, we’re carnival folk. But we can do it with a sense of what is relevant. Storytelling can shift collective consciousness.”

On how starring in Rogue One has changed her public profile:Star Wars definitely shifted things. I never set out to be famous; it’s been a by-product of doing something that I love. I want to put relevant and entertaining stories out into the world, but this is the other side of it. And I think you just have to enjoy it – you can’t turn around and start complaining.”
