Gene Hackman was hit by a car today while riding his bicycle in the Florida Keys, TMZ reports, and was airlifted to a trauma center — but he's okay! Hackman's rep says the actor "suffered bumps and bruises" after the car "bumped" him, but he has been released from the hospital and is doing fine. Cancel your heart attacks, everyone: Gene Hackman is fine. And, not for nothing, the guy is 81 still riding a bicycle, so maybe he's doing a little bit better than fine, hm?
