Kevin Smith thought he was high during heart surgery

Kevin Smith thought he was high during heart surgery”

"So it's me, Oprah, and DJ Khaled". "I'm in pretty good company".

"I feel great! Honestly, the heart attack was the best thing to ever happen to me", Smith said with a chuckle. "The heart attack was the best thing that ever happened to me". "[The doctor] told me later on, "You're very chatty.' He's like, "You wanted to know everything". But he goes through your groin to get to your femoral artery to get up to your heart.

"I feel great", Smith said. "You were singing a song - 'Degrassi". "' And I was singing the theme song to 'Degrassi" because it's very hopeful".

That said, don't expect Smith to give up all of his pre-heart attack habits just because he's on health kick now. [I had] 100 percent blockage [for] years, so I wasn't getting proper oxygen. Now, this is the weight I was when I met my wife. "But as I stared into the infinite, I realized I was relatively content".

Aside from his Today interview, Smith found himself in NY for the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of All These Small Moments, a film starring his daughter, Harley Quinn Smith, 18.

"I was talking the whole operation", he explains.

Since then Smith has lost 32 pounds and says he is actively working to get his weight down and avoid future heart problems.

Smith announced the partnership on his Twitter account, as well as a link to an interview from an appearance on the Today Show on NBC. He started with a plant-based diet but is now on Weight Watchers.

Smith's doctor recommended that he lose a total of 50 pounds, so he has 18 more pounds left to lose in order to reach the target - but he has plans to reach even further.

Smith said he hadn't been aware of the heart problem that became acute on February 25 after he had completed the first of two standup-comedy shows he was shooting in Glendale, California, for the upcoming Showtime special subsequently titled "Silent But Deadly". Still, a doctor who treated him for the heart attack said that changing his habits - like deciding to start walking and to drop sugary drinks - likely came too late after years of bad eating and a lack of exercise.

Smith spoke about his new diet and effort to lose weight in response to the heart attack, and added that he's now an "ambassador" for Weight Watchers.
