Kevin Smith survived a ‘massive heart attack’

American actor and director Kevin Smith, who came to prominence with the comedy film Clerks (1994), survived a heart attack. In the early morning hours of Monday (Feb.26) the star tweeted a selfie from a hospital bed.

Smith commented the pic saying “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!,” he concluded.

Smith currently hosts and produces AMC’s Comic Book Men, a reality series set at his comics shop Jay And Silent Bob’s Secret Stash in Red Bank, New Jersey. It’s been running for seven seasons and features Smith and his pals talking about comic books.

He recently finished directing an episode of The CW’s Flash and last year appeared as himself in James Franco’s The Disaster Artist. His last feature as director was 2016’s Yoga Hosiers.
