Lauren Hutton hospitalized for chest pain



Actress and model Lauren Hutton was airlifted Monday to a heart hospital because of chest pain that doctors determined was probably from indigestion.

Hutton, 60, underwent diagnostic tests at the Heart Hospital of New Mexico in Albuquerque that showed her heart is strong, said Dr. Harvey White, the medical director.

The symptoms "were most likely the result of a case of indigestion," White told KOAT-TV.

Hutton has appeared on more than two dozen Vogue magazine covers and in nearly 50 films, most notably 1980's American Gigolo with Richard Gere.

In a statement released by the hospital, Hutton said it's important to understand the heart risk factors for women and seek treatment immediately.

Hutton was at her home in Taos when she began experiencing chest pain and was rushed to a local hospital. She was then airlifted to Albuquerque.
