Alec Baldwin Rushed to Hospital

He's okay! He's okay!

Oh no! Alec Baldwin was rushed to the hospital for an hour last night after his 14-year-old daughter called 911, claiming her father was "unresponsive." According to the New York Post, Baldwin's situation was originally thought to involve "drugs or alcohol" (everyone knows he doesn't even drink, though!), but after examination the hospital thinks he may have taken an accidental excess of sleeping pills. Which could happen to anyone. Alec Baldwin is a national treasure, and let's hope he wakes up in time to host the Oscars next month (and also lives forever!). Update: Baldwin's rep calls the incident "a misunderstanding" and says Baldwin is back at work. Whew! [NYP]
