Zachary Levi, Taylor Momsen OK after hospital visits

A couple of young stars dipped into their HMOs this week after some sudden trips to hospitals, but the good news is they're both going to be just fine.

Chuck star Zachary Levi was released from the hospital after opening a gash on his head yesterday, and Gossip Girl's young starlet Taylor Momsen dealt with a "potentially life-threatening" situation earlier this week.

TV.com buddy Zachary Levi was on set getting ready to film a scene for an upcoming episode of Chuck, when he was rushing over to his mark and hit his head on a camera, E! Online reports. It wasn't just a love tap, either--Levi opened a gash in his head big enough to require staples to close at a nearby hospital.

Being the trooper he is, Zachary opted not to rest as his doctor ordered, but instead returned to the set to finish filming and keep production chugging along. The show must go on!

Gossip Girl's Taylor Momsen, who plays young Jenny Humphrey on the teen sudser, was hospitalized with a serious throat infection, says The New York Post. The doctor who treated her said it was "potentially life threatening," but also explained that it wasn't an uncommon situation for teenagers. Fifteen-year-old Momsen is now on antibiotics and is doing much better.

I wonder if Taylor had mono.... That's pretty common in teenagers.
And I guess it could be "life threatening" if you want to take an extreme case.
Most likely it would have meant 2 weeks- 6 months of bed rest which I guess for an actress kills her career...

I bet she had strep and they trumped it up... Everything is potentially life threatening these days. Hell, they confiscate nail clippers from you at the airport...

Glad Zachary is Ok. If anything he should be resting and continue to heal. But, he's a good guy he can take it, hopefully. Get well soon Zach!
