Comedy legend Jerry Lewis was at a Friars Club gala, about to receive an award and honor Tom Cruise when he suddenly collapsed!
He was rushed to an NYC hospital where they found he had low blood sugar.
A Friar Club member later took the stage and told everyone Jerry wouldn't be showing up but he was expected to be fine.
He was supposed to give Tom Cruise the Entertainment Icon Award which has only been given to three other huge stars: Frank Sinatra, Cary Grant and Douglas Fairbanks.
Cruise apparently told the audience:
"I am sorry Jerry couldn't be here tonight, but I know he is going to be fine."
Well congrats on your award Tom!
And Jerry, we hope you feel better!
