Kevin Smith in his hospital bed at Glendate Hospital.
Here at Jammy Toast we all love filmmaker and actor Kevin Smith and his films are amongst our all-time favourites. So we were totally shocked to read his tweet the other day stating he had had a massive heart attack after performing on stage and thought he was about to die. The director of Clerks, Mallrats, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back and Chasing Amy, had finished one of two shows when he fell ill on Sunday. The 47-year-old was rushed to hospital and says doctors found one of his arteries was totally blocked. “I faced my greatest fear tonight… and it wasn’t as bad as I’ve always imagined it’d be,” he tweeted. In a tweet written from his hospital bed in LA, Smith said he was reminded of his father, who died after a heart attack.
