The Oscar winner, 64, was in Uzbekistan for the Tashkent International Film Festival when he recounted the experience, explaining how his arm became numb for over 10 seconds earlier that day.

According to TMZ, Spacey was giving a tour of the Afrasiyab Museum in Samarkand, Uzbekistan, on Monday when he began to feel strange.

The legendary actor claimed he thought he was suffering a heart attack and rushed to the hospital to be evaluated by doctors.

Fortunately, physicians determined that the star of The Usual Suspects was alright. According to reports, he was able to leave the hospital the same day and execute his responsibilities at the aforementioned film festival that evening.

“I had an unexpected experience here today,” Spacey told the audience at the Tashkent International Film Festival.

During his visit to the museum on Monday, he said: “I was looking at these extraordinary murals on the walls and I suddenly felt my entire left arm go numb for about eight seconds, and I shook it off, but I immediately told the people I was with what had just happened, and on their advice, we went immediately to the… medical center.”

Spacey says he spent the majority of Monday afternoon getting tested, including an MRI.

“Everything turned out to be completely normal, and I am of course grateful it’s not anything more serious,” he said.

The film festival was one of Spacey’s first public appearances since his sexual assault conviction in London in July.

During the trial, four men said that Spacey attacked them in different events between 2001 and 2013, claims that Spacey flatly rejected. The guys said Spacey grabbed them without their consent, and one claimed Spacey performed oral sex on him while he was asleep.

During the trial, the House of Cards star sobbed as he recognized the claims’ personal and professional consequences, and how he believed people had hurried to judge him without knowing the complete story.

“My world exploded,” according to Page Six. “There was a rush to judgment and before the first question was asked or answered, I lost my job, I lost my reputation, I lost everything in a matter of days.”

Spacey was eventually found not guilty on all counts.

We’re relieved to learn Kevin Spacey’s terrifying incident was nothing more serious. Let us all wish him health and happiness in the future. If you enjoy reading about celebrities, keep up with the latest on Celine Dion, who is still battling a dreadful illness…
