MEN IN HOSPITAL: Group Captain

MEN IN HOSPITAL: Group Captain Mandrake says that just about every time director of Men in Black I and II, Barry Sonnenfeld makes a movie, he ends up in hospital. During Men In Black II he suffered a heart attack. Mandrake includes this quote from the UK Telegraph:

“I was rushed to Bellevue and had all the tests. My dad’s cardiologist came and saw me the next day, and they did echo-cardiograms and all that stuff, and then she went, ‘His heart’s in great shape. There’s no blockage. It’s strong. It’s a great heart. However, this is the most stressed-out, uptight human being I have ever met in my life. You must immediately get him into meditation.’ And my producer said, ‘No, no, no, no. He was meditating when he had the heart attack.”
