William Shatner denies reports he nearly died

William ShatnerMovie legend William Shatner has denied recent reports he nearly died whilst undergoing routine hip replacement surgery at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center last month.

"I'm in absolute perfect health," Shatner, 76, said in a posting on his official website Monday. "I've never felt better in my life.

"Somebody made up an absolutely foolish story."

The National Enquirer made the clams of the 'Star Trek' actor's ill health earlier this week, a report we also ran.

The tabloid quoted a source as saying: "The hip replacement surgery went fine. But William's heart started beating erratically. For a few seconds, it looked like he might die on the table.

"Until now he's had no real medical problems. But he's overweight and out of shape, so hearing he had a heart problem scared the hell out of him."
