Kevin Spacey said he was rushed to the hospital earlier this week, fearing he was having a heart attack while visiting a museum in Uzbekistan at the historical site of Afrasiyab.

During the 64-year-old actor’s speech on Monday night at the 15th Tashkent International Film Festival, he discussed how he “suddenly felt his entire left arm go numb” at the museum earlier that day, the New York Post reported.

“I experienced something here today that was unexpected,” 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,” he added. “I shook it off, but I immediately told the people I was with and we went immediately to the […] medical center.”

The actor was then rushed to Innova Diagnostic Clinic. Despite his concerns that he had a heart attack, the doctors released him after finding no “problem with his heart.”

“I spent the afternoon there having a variety of tests,” the actor said. “Staff took care of me, and even put me through an MRI”.

“Everything turned out to be completely normal, and I’m of course grateful it’s not anything more serious,” he added. “It also made me really take a moment and think about how fragile life is. For all of us.”


In July, the “House of Cards” star was acquitted on nine charges in his sexual assault trial in the United Kingdom.

In a courtroom, Spacey reportedly wept after Justice Mark Wall said he was cleared of all charges and concluded that the “defendant may be discharged,” the Hollywood Reporter reported.

Spacey previously pleaded not guilty to nine counts stemming from allegations that he had sexually assaulted four men between 2004 and 2013 in London, Reuters noted. The allegations ranged from unwanted touching to aggressive fondling to, in one case, performing oral sex on an unconscious actor.

In November 2017, Spacey was fired from the Netflix series “House of Cards” following a string of sexual assault and misconduct allegations against him.
