Actor Alan Arkin was hospitalized and released Tuesday after suffering a small stroke.

"He's actually laughing today," a representative for Arkin told People magazine late last week. "He's at home, he's fine. It was a mini-stroke, there's nothing wrong."

Arkin, 81, reportedly suffered the stroke on Nov. 9, but did not go to the hospital until the next day.

The actor was not in attendance for the premiere of his new film, "Love the Coopers," on Thursday in Los Angeles, TMZ reported.

Arkin has been nominated for an Oscar four times, and won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 2007 for his role as the grandfather in "Little Miss Sunshine."

He's also scored roles in "Argo," "The Russians are Coming," "Grosse Pointe Blank," "Edward Scissorhands," and "Glengarry Glen Ross."

His newest movie, "Going in Style," stars Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman, and is directed by Zack Braff.

Arkin is married to Suzanne Newlander. He has three children from previous marriages.

"Recently, I've been doing some research, talking to people and reading up about this new equation that seems to be running across all of not only Western medicine, but Eastern medicine," he told Naturally Savvy in an interview last year, MSN Wonderwall reported. "No matter how orthodox or ‘far-out’ the doctor is, they all seem to be making this same equation which fascinates me: stress causes inflammation which is the root of most of our sickness."
