| Filed under: TV NewsDrugsStephen ColbertHealthKevin SmithLate Night TV

Kevin Smith has a lot to be grateful for after surviving a "massive" widowmaker heart attack earlier this year — particularly, the giant joint he smoked right before it happened.

The comedian stopped by The Late Show on Tuesday to divulge new details about the night he was shooting a standup special for Showtime and ended up being rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was told he was in the middle of a serious health crisis.

While the 47-year-old filmmaker thought perhaps the mary jane he smoked before the show had triggered the attack, it turned out to be his guardian angel!

He explained to Stephen Colbert:

Kevin Smith is such a candid speaker, saying his heart attack was "the best thing that ever happened" to him.

Not only is he adorably self-deprecating about all the bad choices that led to it, he's being very open about what to he's doing to change, including losing 32 lbs so far (in addition to the 85 a couple years ago)!

In a Today interview Monday, the Clerks director and podcaster got very real about the actual experience of having his life saved in the hospital, explaining how he was terrified of dying — and singing the "very hopeful" Degrassi theme song.

Most importantly, he says he had no idea he'd even had a heart attack until after the operation — just that there had been a massive weight on his chest that kept him from catching his breath. So please, don't write these things off!

Finally, Kevin announced that he was joining Oprah Winfrey and DJ Khaled as a Weight Watchers ambassador — and his new goal is to try to lose 25 lbs more than the doctor recommended.

We cannot WAIT to see it! Ch-ch-check out the happy, hopeful new Kevin (above)!

Kevin Smith is bitter but fitter!

The filmmaker took to Instagram to document his dramatic weight loss journey and the continuous will power it took to get him there.

Sharing a side by side of himself at the Zack and Miri Make a Porno premiere in 2008 with a selfie he snapped this week, Smith compared his current "under control" self to the man that "would've inhaled" the buttercream cake that was served at an AMC event he attended earlier.

The 47-year-old has lost an overall total of 100 pounds in the past ten years — over 30 of which have been dropped in the past several weeks since his scary heart attack.

But he's not the only celeb to flaunt a dramatic weight loss…

We're so relieved Kevin Smith survived his "widowmaker" heart attack a couple weeks back!

And thankfully this is one experience to which he seems determined not to make a sequel.

His cardiologist told him he needed to go vegan AND lose 50 lbs — a tough haul for many, but this is the man who already dropped an impressive 85 just three years back.

On the latest episode of his Hollywood Babble-On podcast, the Clerks director explained how this time, he's using Penn Jillette's diet, which we know from the magician's book Presto! starts with two weeks of nothing but potatoes then adds in vegetables. Strict stuff.

"It's rather extreme, but it appeals to me because it dials in to certain personality traits."

We assume he means being able to follow a VERY boring routine. But he's doing it! He revealed:

The filmmaker beats the widowmaker!

Three days after surviving a near fatal heart attack, Kevin Smith has returned home from the hospital and is feeling better than ever!

The Clerks director gave fans an update on his health in an Instagram post on Wednesday, noting that his heart is "feeling good" and "getting more blood flow and oxygen than it has in a long time."

As we reported, Smith had a life saving operation this week after doctors discovered he had a 100% blockage of the left anterior descending artery.

The 47-year-old made an emergency trip to the hospital after struggling to breathe during a stand up set on Sunday. Doctors learned he had a heart attack terrifyingly known as the "widowmaker," and performed an operation to put a stent in.

In the meantime, Smith's social media pages have been showered with support from his friends and fans, which left the director feeling "touched."

Smith thanked his supporters for their messages and poignant stories in his post, particularly Chris Pratt "for the prayers." (A message to the godless haters who criticized the Christian actor for tweeting that he was "praying" for Smith.)
