Actor Joshua Jackson Suffers Severe Allergic Reaction to Peanuts

'Fringe' star Joshua Jackson was hospitalized last week after suffering a severe allergic reaction. Thankfully, the actor's symptoms were treated promptly, and he was soon given a clean bill of health and released from the Santa Monica hospital. Upon his release, the former Dawson's Creek star was spotted casually strolling out of the hospital alongside girlfriend Diane Kruger.

The 33-year-old actor's representative reportedly told TMZ “Josh had an allergic reaction (not asthma attack). [He] is perfectly fine.” Although the rep didn't comment on the cause of the allergy attack, he is known to have a serious allergy to peanuts. Peanuts are known to cause life-threatening allergic reactions; Joshua certainly got lucky. By all appearances, he's escaped from the allergic reaction relatively unscathed.

Having made it through the recent scare intact, it looks like Josh has everything going for him – his health, his job, and his love life all look to be better than ever. Series four of his hit show will premier on Fox on September 23, and he was recently spotted smooching longtime girlfriend Diane Kruger while on a date in New York City. How's that for a Hollywood ending?
