Non-Story of the Day - Leon ate some spicy food!

French actor Jean Reno's 'heart attack' was actually a bout of heartburn and gastroenteritis, according to his publicist.

Reports suggested the Leon star had been rushed to the Fort-de-France hospital on Martinique on Wednesday night after suffering a "serious" cardiac arrest on the Caribbean island of St. Barts.

But his publicist, Christina Papadopoulos, the fuss was nothing more than the result of "too much spicy Caribbean food".

She says, "Reports that actor
Jean Reno is in the hospital due to a heart attack are false. He is vacationing in the Caribbean and went to a local hospital as a
precaution for some discomfort he was feeling due to heartburn and gastroenteritis.

"It was definitely not a heart attack. He is fine and healthy and enjoying the rest of his vacation travelling in the Caribbean.

"I think he was just enjoying vacation and probably ate a little too much spicy Caribbean food!"

Hospital director Bernard Cavignaux confirms the 60 year old underwent tests and was expected to be discharged on Thursday.

French singer
Johnny Hallyday and his wife Laetitia are expected to pick the actor up from the hospital. The trio and Reno's wife Sofia are expected to continue with their vacation in nearby St. Barts.

The Pink Panther star was at Hallyday's retreat when he fell ill.

I can't believe out of all the cool movies Jean Reno has been in they say he is The Pink Panther Star!!! What the hell is that about. He's Leon for monkey's sake. One of the coolest killer's to hit the screen.
