Sixties icon Sandra Dee's ongoing health problems have cost her a role in a biopic about her late husband Bobby Darin.

The GIDGET star was set for a role in Beyond The Sea opposite KEVIN SPACEY, who is playing crooner Darin - but a heart attack has ruled her out of the project.

The actress, 61, has spent years fighting anorexia, alcoholism and kidney failure, but her latest crisis has put her career comeback on hold.

Dee is still recovering at home in Hollywood after suffering a heart attack in August (03), and her frail condition has forced her to give up a role and the chance to be a consultant on the set.

Caring Spacey has sent Dee, who wed Darin when she was just 18, a kind letter inviting her to come to the set when she's feeling better.
