Chinese actress Eva Huang, the only female Asian celebrity invited to The Oscars this year, missed the opportunity to walk the red carpet with Hollywood star Tom Hanks after she fainted while doing her makeup.
Eva, who recently collaborated with Tom on new film Bombing of Chongqing, was immediately rushed to the hospital. As seen from a photo of the actress on the ambulance stretcher, the Kung Fu Hustle star appeared to be in great discomfort.
According to media reports, Eva’s condition is not life-threatening but further tests would need to be done.
This is the second time in the past week that Eva had to withdraw from an important event. The 32-year-old was due to attend The 30th Independent Spirit Awards ceremony held on Feb 21, but she was forced to pull out when her million-dollar gown was stolen just before the red carpet.
