Jean Reno Heart Attack Reports False

(showbizspy.com) - Jean Reno did not suffer a heart attack, despite reports to the contrary.

It was claimed the 60-year-old actor -- star of films such as The Professional, The Da Vinci Code, Mission: Impossible and Pink Panther -- had been rushed to hospital after suffering a serious heart attack.

Although Reno's publicist confirms the star did visit the hospital, it was for a less serious ailment.

"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 was not a heart attack.

"He is fine and healthy and enjoying the rest of his vacation traveling in the Caribbean," his publicist, Christina Papadopoulos, tells People magazine, joking,  "I think he was just enjoying vacation and probably ate a little too much spicy Caribbean food!"

Reno, and his wife, Zofia, arrived in St. Bart's on Tuesday where they were house-guests of French rocker Johnny Hallyday and his wife, according to French news agency LCI. Hallyday and French President Nicolas Sarkozy were best men at Reno's wedding in July 2006.
