Bernie Mac Hospitalized With Pneumonia

Bernie Mac has been hospitalized for pneumonia, according to reports.

Mac, a star of “Ocean’s Thirteen” alongside George Clooney and Brad Pitt, was hospitalized in Chicago, a rep for the star told Reuters.

“Mr. Mac is responding well to treatment and will be released soon,” a statement from his rep read. “He asked that his privacy and that of his family is respected while he gets well.”

Mac’s publicist said the actor’s pneumonia was not related to his sarcoidosis, which has been in remission since 2005, according to the Chicago Sun Times.
