Shields states that he initially experienced moments of confusion and then began having a seizure: “Foaming at the mouth, all blue, trying to swallow his tongue.” The actress ended up being transported to the emergency room by ambulance, with Bradley Cooper next to her, which she recalls with some humor: “I thought to myself: This has to be death. We wake up and Bradley Cooper says: ‘I’m going to the hospital with you, Brooke,’ and he takes my hand.”

Chris.’ [Henchy, marido da actriz] Not around. ‘Go and get her.’ He came, and someone called the ambulance.”

“I love food, I love alcohol, I love life and I want to be healthy because of my heart,” he asserts. I don’t like going to the gym. I love Pilates. This is where I am. And I’m tired of not feeling thin enough. “It’s boring and a waste of my time.”
