MOULIN ROUGE star John Leguizamo was almost forced to cancel his appearance on late night show The Tonight Show in America on Thursday night (09JUN05) after being struck with chronic food poisoning.

The actor had gobbled up runny eggs for breakfast at his hotel and immediately knew it was a bad idea.

He told show host Jay Leno, "Just burn the dressing room that's all you want to do. I didn't know that all my orifices were so synchronised."
