New York: Actress Joan Collins had to be taken out of the Vanity Fair post-Oscar party in an ambulance after the tight dress she wore made her woozy.
Collins, 77, who joined Graydon Carter’s viewing party and dinner at Hollywood’s iconic Sunset Tower Hotel, started feeling faint and rested on a sofa in the hotel’s Tower Bar.
Her husband, Percy Gibson, then called for an ambulance and the actress was discreetly helped out of the back of the hotel.
“We had been there for seven hours, and I started feeling dizzy. I tried to get some air, but I felt really faint,” the New York Post quoted Collins, who recently completed an acclaimed run at Feinstein’s at The Regency, as saying.
“I wanted to leave in our limo, but Percy decided to call an ambulance. We went to the hospital, and they did all the tests before the doctors told me I was absolutely fine and released me.
“The truth was, I made the wrong decision to wear a very tight dress, and had something rather like a Victorian swoon. The good news is, I am in good health and feel fine today,” she added.
