Actor Kevin Smith, the star of the New Jersey-based "Comic Book Men" reality show, is lucky to be alive. The 47-year-old tweeted from a California hospital bed overnight that he's recovering from a massive heart attack.
He got sick between comedy shows in Glendale Sunday night and said if he hadn't canceled the second one and sought medical care, he'd be dead. Smith tweeted that the doctor who saved his life told him his LAD artery, the so-called "Widow Maker," was 100-percent blocked. Smith wrote and directed the movies "Chasing Amy" and Mallrats."
