The hospitalization comes four years after Cameron had an operation to remove a brain tumor in 2014. It was not immediately clear why he was in the hospital. He is currently studying at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts.

Downey, of “Touched by an Angel” fame, asked followers for their prayers Friday but not say who they were.
