Teri Garr has been hospitalized after suffering a medical emergency.
The 75-year-old actress — known for her roles on “Tootsie”, “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” and “Young Frankenstein” — was rushed to the hospital around 10:30 a.m. local time on Monday, per TMZ. An emergency call was made from her San Fernando Valley home.
TMZ reported that Garr may have suffered a stroke, but that does not seem to be the case. Garr’s rep told ET Canada the actress is “fine” and suffered some “confusion” as a result of “dehydration.”
“Teri is fine. She had some confusion which it turns out was caused by dehydration,” the rep explained. “To be cautious they are keeping her overnight and she’ll be home tomorrow. I spoke to her and she sounds good.”
Garr was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1999 and suffered a brain aneurysm in Dec. 2006 that left her in a coma for weeks. She eventually returned to acting but retired in 2011.
