Jerry Lewis Down -- False Alarm

5/16/2009 10:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Reports claim Jerry Lewis collapsed at the Cannes Film Festival in France just a short time ago. He's 83. From what we can tell he just slipped. We're checking to be sure.

UPDATE: We spoke to Jerry's rep and she has informed us that she spoke to Jerry and his wife and he is fine. She also says, "Stories of a collapse are completely erroneous, Jerry is in good health and spirits in Cannes."

At 83 he's already in 'overtime' with health problems he has had over the years. There is a time to relax and take things easy instead of running around the world.

The man is a living legend. All his friends and fellow actors are quickly leaving this earth. He has done so much for children with physical problems. Jerry made me and countless others laugh when we were children. God bless him.

This attention-monger geezer will do anything to try and get a laugh. Next up he will be on the nutty professor glasses and bang his head in a streetpole.

From the side view Lewis looks a lot like Pacino.
