This is just so sad.
We hate to have to tell you this, but it looks like legendary actor Omar Sharif has unfortunately been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
According to Omar's son Tarek El-Sharif, the 83-year-old has been dealing with the disease for the past three years, and often gets his movies confused.
Tarek shared a rather grim statement about his father's mental status in a recent interview, saying:

This is just terrible.
Omar Sharif, Hollywood legend and 79 year old man, slapped a woman during a film festival in Qatar. On the red carpet. In front of cameras. Lots of them.
He lost his cool when she tried to take a picture with him. He angrily told her to wait her turn and then slapped her.
WHAT?? How does this just slide??
Omar has never been the most peaceful dude, having had run ins with cops and parking attendants before. But we can hardly believe that he'd be stupid enough to hit anyone, let alone a woman, on the red carpet at a film festival.
