Actress Melanie Griffith checked herself into rehab for the third time, her rep told Entertainment Weekly. The Working Girl is staying at Cirque Lodge in Utah for routine treatment for past addictions. "She is there to reinforce her commitment to stay healthy," Griffith's rep said.

A representative for Melanie Griffith says the actress has had surgery to remove early stages of skin cancer from her face.

Spokeswoman Robin Baum said Thursday the procedure was done early enough to prevent further complications.

The 52-year-old Griffith was left with a black eye after the surgery.

The "Working Girl" star has a 12-year-old daughter with her husband, actor Antonio Banderas. Griffith also has an adult son and daughter from previous relationships.

She is set to appear on an episode of TV's "Nip/Tuck" next year.
