Earlier this week, Andrew Lloyd Webber announced that he’s about to go to battle with prostate cancer, and now Dennis Hopper is basically echoing the same statement. A manager for 73-year-old Dennis tells the AP that he’s been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Dennis is currently undergoing a special treatment at the University of California, so all of his work commitments have been put on pause.
Dennis just finished work on the second season of the Starz series Crash and he was supposed to fly over to Australia this week to attend an exhibition of his art at the Centre for the Moving Image in Melbourne. Of course, that’s been canceled now.
Dennis’ manager said that he was hospitalized last month after he got a case of the thirsties and his stomach wouldn’t stop acting like a real asshole. His manager added that everyone is hoping for the best, but he wouldn’t exactly say what Dennis’ current condition is.
Send a good thought or two Dennis’ way. It’s best if the thought is delivered by a fluffy kitten with a bow on its ear.
