LOS ANGELES, Calif. - A publicist for comedian Jerry Lewis says the 86-year-old was hospitalized Tuesday night with low blood sugar after forgetting to eat and drink.

Lewis was hospitalized just before he was scheduled to receive an award and present another to Tom Cruise at the Friars Club Entertainment Icon Awards in New York.

Publicist Candi Cazau says colleagues have told her Lewis is fine and should be released Wednesday. She says he is very busy and simply forgot to eat or drink.
