Kevin Spacey Reportedly Rushed to Hospital Over Heart Attack Scare
Spacey was attending a film festival in Uzbekistan.
Turns out Kevin Spacey has a heart — anatomically speaking anyway. The out actor Kevin Spacey was rushed to a hospital on Wednesday while at a film festival in Uzbekistan.
He received an MRI scan after being escorted away from the 15th Tashkent International Film Festival, according to British tabloid The Sun. The publication reports that Spacey’s arm became numb at the festival and he was concerned he was having a heart attack.
Spacey, 64, was touring the Afrasiyab Museum in Samarkand when he felt his arm go numb for a little under 10 seconds.
Later, doctors released him from the medical center he was sent to. Spacy even appeared on stage later in the evening and said he was fine.
“It made me really take a moment and think about how fragile life is - for all of us,” Spacey said, according to The Sun.
"I was looking at these extraordinary murals on the walls and I suddenly felt my entire left arm go numb for about eight seconds. I shook it off, but I immediately told the people I was with and we went immediately to the [...] medical center," Spacey explained.
He said he spent the afternoon undergoing several tests.
"Everything turned out to be completely normal, and I'm grateful it's not anything more serious,” Spacey said.
The disgraced actor was acquitted earlier this year of 12 charges in the U.K. of sexually abusing four men at various times between 2001 and 2013. He was ordered to pay a House of Cards production company more than $30 million over misconduct on set of the Netflix series that he was fired from after a number of sexual assault allegations were levied against him.
