Actor Kevin Spacey attended the closing ceremonies at the 15th Tashkent International Film Festival in Uzbekistan. While giving a speech on stage, he shared details about a very recent health scare.

Spacey told the crowd, “I was looking at these extraordinary murals on the walls and I suddenly felt my entire left arm go numb for about eight seconds.” That is a tell tale symptom of a heart attack, so Spacey was immediately rushed to the hospital.

According to The U.S. Sun, Spacey went to the Innova Diagnostic Clinic where he had an MRI and a series of tests. The biggest concern was a heart attack. A source who spoke to The U.S. Sun added, “He was treated professionally by doctors and staff and found to have no problem with his heart.” 

At the film festival, Spacey reassured his fans that he was okay after all. He explained that he “spent the afternoon” at the hospital undergoing various tests. He added, “Everything turned out to be completely normal, and I am of course grateful that it’s not anything more serious.”

A video of part of Spacey’s speech at the closing ceremonies of the film festival was later posted on Instagram. You can watch it below.
