'Pearl Harbor' star Josh Hartnett was hospitalised yesterday (30.03.09) after complaining of "excruciating" stomach pains
Josh Hartnett was rushed to hospital yesterday (30.03.09).
The 'Pearl Harbor' star was staying at the Chateau Marmont hotel in West Hollywood when he began complaining of "excruciating" abdominal pain at around 2am.
An ambulance quickly arrived and took the star to Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he is currently "under observation".
In a statement, Hartnett's representative Susan Patricola said the 30-year-old actor had suffered a "flare-up" of an ongoing gastrointestinal problem.
Patricola revealed the actor has been experiencing pain in his abdomen for "several months", during which he starred in a West End theatre production of 'Rain Man' in London.
The illness is thought to be caused by a lingering stomach virus.
Hartnett is currently "resting comfortably" and will see a specialist today (31.03.09).
The hunk recently revealed he found working in the theatre difficult because he had to perform in front of a live audience.
He said: "It's just a completely different experience to film because with film you do your take and then you don't do it ever again."
