Josh Hartnett hospitalized

By Alexandra Heilbron on March 30, 2009 | 9 Comments

Josh HartnettJosh Hartnett was taken to hospital early this morning following a 911 call. An ambulance picked him up at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood at approximately 1:00 a.m. He walked into the ambulance on his own, and did not need a stretcher. He was reportedly complaining of abdominal pain. We’ll update the story as soon as more information is forthcoming.

Update: TMZ reports that Josh was in excruciating pain because of gastrointestinal issues, which may be due to some sort of stomach virus while shooting a movie overseas.

    Hmmmm…..possible ulcer? LOL. Wasn’t he pissed to the gills at a recent fashion show?

    I gotta tell you….at around 1:00am after having a few shooters, a couple of shots and some rum & cokes to wash them down, I start to get abdominal pain as well. I guess maybe I should call EMS except my lazy a$$ will want to be on the stretcher!

    wow!!! such a funny story….not

    hope it turns out to be a minor thing, and he’s none the worse for it…

    Well Jo, I just read that he’s gay and that the gerbils lacerated his rectum and ate through to his intestines and that they have been the source of his gastrointestinal problems over the years. He’s scheduled for surgery tomorrow morning and should be fine. Minor enough?

    oh well if that’s all it is, no worries…

    I was in A PANIC he maybe had excessive gas…

    I once had a panic attack that I was sure was a heart attack. Called 911, spent the night in emerg; used a whack of taxpayer’s money for the EMS, tests and a night of observation. Felt like a complete ass to find out I just had mental problems, but better safe than sorry. He probably had indigestion from all the yummy celeb food.

    I’ve heard of that before, Anon…
    someone near and dear to me had same twice in one week and was panic, apparently mimics heart attack symptoms, scary.

    Don’t ever feel bad though checking this kind of thing out, you never know, I agree – better to be safe…

    So……just a wild guess here, Max, but would you have been the one who commented last night under the name of “heath” on the ‘Pattinson clears the air about his “stinkiness”‘ article?
