Some news sources show photos of Jerry Lewis ‘collapsing’ at Cannes film festival; and this is false news blown out of proportion! The cameras really did catch him ‘tripping’ on the red carpet, but news sources like ‘The Enquirer’ turned this scene into Jerry ‘collapsing’. The photo in The Enquirer shows Jerry bent down and his people are catching and holding him up. They do not show him recovering milliseconds after. Here is the before and after picture. He obviously did not collapse.
