Heart attacks are not uncommon. Most people know at least one person in their family or among their friends who has suffered one. Hollywood is no different. There are many celebrities who have suffered heart attacks and, as we’ve seen, many of them have not survived. We were really interested to see how many celebrities have survived heart attacks and whether or not they have changed their lives as a result. A few of the celebrities on our list are pretty private, so we’re lucky to have even heard about it; however, there are others who were more than happy to talk about their experiences.
5. Kelsey Grammer
In 2008, Kelsey Grammer was hospitalized after he experienced symptoms of a heart attack while paddle-boarding in Hawaii. While his rep told everyone that the attack was mild, the television actor later said that it was much more severe and that he had almost died because his heart had stopped. “They had to blast me twice and get me started all over again,” Grammer told “Entertainment Tonight.” “I did think: ‘Oh gosh, I have got to hang on. I’ve got too much junk I’ve got to take care of. I’ve got to take care of the family.’”
