French media are reporting the actor was transferred from a police station in Paris’ 8th district to the Cochin hospital earlier this week.
The 40-year-old “had swelling of the face and complained of pain, nausea and dizziness,” M6Info reported.
A source at the Paris Public Prosecutor’s office told Fairfax Media that police had responded to “an incident involving the actress and her partner that took place on Tuesday evening”.
George’s partner is French businessman and film producer Jean-David Blanc and they have two young children: Raphael, 2, and Solal, who was born in November last year.
The couple met at the BAFTA after party in London back in 2011.
She was previously married to Chilean film director Claudio Dabed, whom she divorced in 2012.
George has previously spoken about her relationship with Blanc while promoting her new medical drama series Heartbeat earlier this year.
“I have an amazing man, who is really supportive,” she said.
The pair are regulars on the local social scene and regularly walk the red carpet at Cannes Film Festival and the amfAR Cinema Against Aids gala.
They most recently attended an official dinner at the Elysee Palace in Paris with President Francois Hollande and Governor-General Peter Cosgrove.
George was recently back in Australia filming The Butterfly Tree, a low-budget film that focuses on a widowed father and his teenage son who fall for the same woman. It will premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival next year.
The Perth-born actor rose to international fame with roles in Alias, Grey’s Anatomy and the TV adaptation of Christos Tsiolkas’ book, The Slap.
Fairfax Media has contacted George’s publicist and manager for comment.
