Kevin Smith, the director of ‘Clerks,’ tweeted early Monday that he survived a “massive” heart attack in the wake of taping a unidentified show.
“In the event that I hadn’t wiped out show 2 to go the hospital, I would’ve passed on today,” he tweeted. “In any case, until further notice, I’m still over the ground!”
He went ahead to state that the specialist who spared his life said he had a 100 percent blockage of his LAD supply route, known as “the dowager producer,” The Hollywood Reporter revealed.
Smith has been in the news toward the end of last year when he declared that he would give every future leftover from his initial movies to Women in Film. Harvey Weinstein, the disrespected film big shot, helped Smith turn into a fruitful director.
After the first show this evening, I had a massive heart attack. 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! pic.twitter.com/M5gSnW9E5h

The star influenced the declaration in the most recent scene of his to podcast, “Hollywood Babble-On,” where he not just told the live group he’d give every single future lingering from his initial Miramax movies to the non-benefit association Women In Film, which advocates for sexual orientation balance in showbusiness, yet gave his sincere contemplations on the disfavored previous Hollywood head honcho and his impact consistently.
“My s- – t is tied up with this man,” he says, apparently battling back tears. “It’s been a strange f – ing week… I simply needed to make some f – ing motion pictures, that is it.
That is the reason I came, that is the reason I made ‘Clerks.’ And no f – ing motion picture is justified regardless of this. Like, my whole profession, f- – k it, take it. It’s wrapped up in something truly f – ing horrendous.”
