GLENDALE, CA (CelebrityAccess) — Actor, director, and comic Kevin Smith revealed that after a performance on Sunday night revealed that he had been hospitalized after suffering a “massive heart attack.”
“After the first show this evening, I had a massive heart attack,” Smith tweeted. “The Doctor who saved my life told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (aka ‘the Widow-Maker’). If I hadn’t canceled show 2 to go to the hospital, I would’ve died tonight. But for now, I’m still above ground!”
“After the first show, I felt kinda nauseous. I threw up a little but it didn’t seem to help. Then I started sweating buckets and my chest felt heavy. Turns out I had a massive heart attack,” Smith added.
Smith was performing two shows at Alex Theatre in Glendale as part of a taped standup special when the attack occurred.
Smith is best known for his films, including Clerks, Dogma, and Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back.
