Hugh Laurie - Hugh Laurie Skips Film Screening Due To Exhaustion

Hugh Laurie left the premiere of his new movie early last week (ends16Sep12) after he was struck down with exhaustion.

The British actor attended the screening of The Oranges at the Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York City on Friday (14Sep12), but after sitting down with other guests to watch the film, Laurie made a swift exit.

A representative for the House star has now explained his decision to duck out of the event early, insisting Laurie's hectic schedule had left him totally drained.

The spokesperson tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "He did a full press day on Friday with the rest of the cast, as well as appearances on (several TV shows) starting at 8am. After completing the press line and finishing his publicity commitments for the day, the film started late and he opted to leave as he hadn't had a proper break... to eat and rest."

Laurie recently completed a tour of the U.S. to promote his jazz album Let Them Talk.
