HANNIBAL actor GARY OLDMAN's wife almost died of a drug overdose last month (JAN01).
The English star's beautiful partner DONYA FIORENTINO was rushed to Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after an overdose on pills and alcohol. A pal says, "Gary was at her side the entire time. The couple had just returned home from the SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL in Utah (America) when Donya overdosed on pills and booze.
"It was terribly sad. Gary spent his fourth wedding anniversary last week (16FEB01) visiting Donya in rehab. She's told Gary she's determined to beat her problem and so far she's doing a great job." The pal says Gary's being very supportive and talking to her every day, in between taking care of their two boys GULLIVER and CHARLIE at their Hollywood Hills home. (SVD/NE/CPT)
