Ex-Malcolm In The Middle star Muniz, 26, suffers mini-stroke


LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Former Malcolm In The Middle child star Frankie Muniz said on Tuesday he had suffered a mini-stroke, at the age of 26.

"I was in the hospital last Friday. I suffered a 'Mini Stroke', which was not fun at all. Have to start taking care of my body! Getting old!" Muniz said on Twitter.

Muniz put his acting career on hold six years ago to race cars for a living, and earlier this year he joined a rock band.

According to celebrity website, Muniz was taken ill in Arizona last Friday when friends noticed he was having trouble speaking and understanding.
