UPDATE: A rep for Josh Hartnett released a statement late Monday morning regarding the actor’s trip to the emergency room.
“Josh Hartnett walked into an ambulance at approximately 1:45 am this morning suffering from a flare-up of a gastro-intestinal problem that plagued him while he was starring in the West End of London during the production of Rain Man his publicist Susan Patricola was quoted as saying,” the statement said. “He is under obesrvation but is resting comfortably.”
The actor was taken to the emergency room at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after a 911 call was placed early Monday morning from the Chateau Marmont hotel on Sunset Blvd.
RadarOnline.com was first to report the breaking news story and now we’ve learned that Hartnett was a registered guest at the hotel and had appeared pale and disheveled in recent days.
He complained of stomach pains and was taken by ambulance to the hospital.
One guest at the Chateau Marmont told RadarOnline that she observed a white male doubled-over in the bar at the hotel between the hours of 12:30 a.m. and 1 a.m. Monday. That time frame fits when the 911 call was made.
Meanwhile, a source at the hotel says Hartnett “looked pale, dirty and disheveled” and that he “stumbled around the hotel bar” for a while late Friday night and into the early morning hours Saturday. The source added, “he didn’t appear to be drinking, but he wasn’t himself. He looked troubled. He didn’t seem to have anyone with him.”
It’s been a bad couple of days for the Pearl Harbor star. Production was halted this past weekend on his latest project, Queen Of The South,
Variety reported, after director Jonathan Jakubowicz said Mexican drug cartel members threatened him over making the film.
