Josh Hartnett hospitalized

March 30th, 2009 // 45 Comments

Josh Hartnett was hospitalized early this morning after suffering abdominal pain, according to E! News:

Hartnett was out Sunday at Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont when he began “suffering from a flare of a gastrointestinal problem that plagued him while he was starring in the West End of London during the production of Rain Man,” says rep Susan Patricola. The actor was laid up for a few days last November.
Patricola says Hartnett walked into an ambulance under his own power about 1:45 a.m. He was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
“He is under observation but is resting comfortably,” she says.

Usually after I eat Taco Bell, I just pop some Tums. But if Josh Hartnett wants to ride in an ambulance, who am I to judge? Directly.

    I did a play in London. It was really hard, I stayed up all night on it. Then the next day in gym class I was on the minitramp and I got diarrhea.

    You’d think the guy would have learned by not to not do too much heroin on an empty stomach. Stupid ass clown can’t hold his juice. Or his women. Pussy.

    He faked all the symptoms in the hope of receiving a thorough physical exam.

  26. Sauron

    Weak people are mean people folks! It’s all about mentality and attitude! In the animal world they’re the first to be taken!

  27. Josh

    “I’d say the first time was about 15 years ago…what? Oh, ok. No, I wouldn’t say I’ve had any anal bleeding specifically associated with this illness.”

    I’d be sick to my stomach too if I’d helped to absolutely jack up a great story like 30 Days of Night. Whatever. I hope he’s ok, but a little bit of painful gas would serve him right for his “acting” career.

  33. i call 'em as I see 'em

    #3 you are a very disturbed person.
    You are also funny as hell.
    You made me snort audibly.

  34. AirMail

    There’s something going around. Listen to the Doctors and take good care of yourself. Your are about the only watchable actor left in Hollywood.

  35. Ah yes, late night curry will do that to you.

  36. devilsrain

    How much of a fag do you have to be to call an ambulance for a stomach ache!? Attention whore

  37. devilsumbrella

    #37 You’ve obviously never had appendicitis. You can’t driven when you have abdominal pain like that altho you can walk – real slowly. Sometimes it takes a few attacks before your appendix really flares up enough to come out.

  38. yep, I’m sure.

  39. I’m an open girl! I like strong guys. Do you want to date with me? Do you want to have an amazing night? If so, please join in –?––?–
