The 77-year-old ‘Cleopatra’ star took to her page on the popular micro-blogging website Twitter to reveal the news that she will soon be going under the knife to improve blood flow to her heart.
“Dear Friends,I would like to let you know before it gets in the papers that I am going into the hospital to have a procedure on my heart,” she wrote on her Twitter page.
