    Actor Dennis Hopper 'is terminally ill'

    Actor Dennis Hopper 'is terminally ill'


    The couple were married in 1996 and have a six-year-old daughter

    Actor Dennis Hopper is terminally ill and is unable to undergo chemotherapy to treat prostate cancer, his lawyer has said in court papers.

    Joseph Mannis said his client was therefore unable to be questioned by lawyers of his wife of 14 years as part of divorce proceedings.

    In previous court documents, Hopper had said he hoped chemotherapy would be successful and that he could recover.

    The film star, 73, filed for divorce from Victoria Hopper in January.

    'Outrageous conduct'

    In the papers, which state that Hopper weighs about 7st 2lb (45kg), he is described by his doctor, David Agus, as extremely weak and unable to have long conversations.

    Being questioned by his wife's lawyers "could actually threaten his ability to survive the current health crisis", Dr Agus adds.

    But he has approved an appearance by Hopper to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday because it would be good for his state of mind.

    Last month, a judge ruled that Mrs Hopper must stay at least 10ft (3m) away from her husband after the actor said he wanted to eliminate unnecessary stress.

    In previous papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Hopper - who has been married five times - claimed his wife had engaged in "outrageous conduct" over the past year.

    He alleges she has been difficult over visitation rights for their six-year-old daughter Galen.

    Mrs Hopper, 42, meanwhile, said the actor threatened her, smoked marijuana around their daughter and that his illness had left him unable to make sound decisions.

    She has also claimed that he filed for divorce so that he could cut her out of her inheritance.

    The actor, best known for films including Easy Rider, Apocalypse Now and Blue Velvet, has denied all the claims.

    Frail Dennis Hopper gets Hollywood star

    Posted 2 hours 37 minutes ago
    A frail but smiling Dennis Hopper has been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, belying reports that the Easy Rider actor was on his deathbed.
    Hopper, 73, has advanced prostate cancer and was said in court documents this week to have dropped to about 45 kilograms in weight and was too weak to continue chemotherapy.
    Hopper wore a bandage on his head and on his right hand at the ceremony. He attributed them to injuries he suffered in a fall after a paparazzi called out his name as he walked outside.
    "I thought I recognised the voice, so I kept walking and turned around but I didn't see the little ridgeline in the road and I took a terrible fall because I have no muscle," the actor told reporters.
    "So I fell directly on my face, and I had my glasses in my hand. I got pretty screwed up."
    Hopper, who began his career in the 1955 teenage rebellion film Rebel Without a Cause with James Dean, is embroiled in a divorce battle with his fifth wife.
    Court documents in the case said he was too frail to continue with chemotherapy.
    But Hopper won his doctor's approval to attend the ceremony, unveiling his Walk of Fame star and honouring his work in more than 150 movies.
    The Hollywood Walk of Fame features about 2,400 stars and stretches 3.8 kilometres down Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street.
    Hopper was accompanied by Viggo Mortensen with whom he appeared in the 1990s films The Indian Runner and Boiling Point.
    Hopper is best known for directing, writing the screenplay and starring in 1969 counter-culture movie Easy Rider with Peter Fonda.
    The actor was diagnosed with prostate cancer in September 2009 and in January he started divorce proceedings against his wife of 14 years, Victoria Duffy.
    The two have since been engaged in an ugly tug-of-war over their seven-year-old daughter, Galen.
    Last month Hopper won a restraining order keeping Duffy out of his home in the southern California beach city of Venice.

    I've always been a fan. He started really young, Rebel without a cause was his first I think.

    I heard Robert Duval is in about the same health condition.
