Dennis Hopper ends up in NYC hospital




Dennis Hopper was taken to a New York hospital Wednesday morning because of an undisclosed problem, a publicist told CNN. The 73-year-old actor was in the Big Apple to promote Crash, Sheila Feren said. He was still being treated that afternoon, CNN says.

Entertainment Tonight adds that he was seen being loaded into an ambulance with an oxygen mask, and that he had been displaying flu-like symptoms. We sure hope it isn’t the dreaded swine flu (or even just regular flu, which kills as many as half a million people worldwide every year).
