Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey, a man who has been embroiled in an absolute ton of controversy due to the #MeToo Movement, was rushed to the hospital on Monday amid fears he was suffering from a heart attack after he experienced serious numbness in his left arm during the Tashkent International Film Festival, which took place in Uzbekistan.
According to Breitbart News, Spacey, 64, most widely known for his role in House of Cards, was taken to the Innova Diagnostic Clinic where he underwent a series of tests to determine the reason for the numbness, which included an MRI.
Here’s more from the report:
Spacey was reportedly touring the Afrasiyab Museum when he felt his “entire left arm go numb for about eight seconds.” While he was concerned that he could have been suffering a heart attack, doctors later gave him the all-clear.
“Mr. Spacey was taken to a medical centre over health concerns,” a source close to the actor told The Sun. “He was treated professionally by doctors and staff and found to have no problem with his heart.” The American Beauty star later returned to the stage at the festival, where he told attendees that his health was “normal.”
“It made me really take a moment and think about how fragile life is — for all of us,” Spacey stated after the incident. “I experienced something here today that was unexpected.”
“I was looking at these extraordinary murals on the walls and I suddenly felt my entire left arm go numb for about eight seconds,” Spacey went on to say during his speech at the filmfestival’s closing ceremony on Monday night. “I shook it off, but I immediately told the people I was with and we went immediately to the — medical center.”
“I spent the afternoon there having a variety of tests. Staff took care of me, and even put me through an MRI,” he continued during the speech. “Everything turned out to be completely normal, and I’m grateful it’s not anything more serious.”
Remember that controversy I mentioned earlier?
Back in July of this year, Spacey was found not guilty on nine different sexual offenses at London’s Southwark Crown Court. The film star was immediately blacklisted by major studios in Hollywood for over six years until he was officially cleared of the charges.
Spacey is definitely right about the preciousness of life. We are not guaranteed to have another breath, another moment on this earth before being sent to meet our Maker, where we will stand before God and give an account for every word and deed during our brief time here on earth.
Does being acquitted of the charges mean Spacey is innocent? No. It means there wasn’t enough evidence to prove he was guilty. Only God Himself really knows if Spacey is innocent of the charges brought against him. And God will ensure that justice is served in the hereafter if it turns out he’s actually guilty. Because the Creator knows everything. We cannot hide our wickedness from Him.
In the meantime, let’s wish Spacey good health.
