dennis hopper finally gets his star!


good evening! word broke earlier this week that actor dennis hopper (age 73) was too sick and frail to take part in the nasty divorce proceedings with his wife victoria – he’s been fighting prostate cancer (the sad news became public last october) and is apparently too ill to have undergo any more chemotherapy treatments – but thankfully he was able to gather enough strength to accept his star which was unveiled on hollywood’s walk of fame earlier today! (i’m surprised he didn’t already have one) i literally gasped out loud when i saw the gaunt photos of mr. hopper below – he doesn’t look well at all and is reportedly weighing in at a mere 100lbs – sadly i don’t think he has very long to live but i’m glad he was honored by hollywood before it was too late! (the adorable little girl on his lap is his six-year old daughter galen grier) i’ve been a fan of his work ever since i saw him play the highly intense gas-sniffing bad guy ‘frank booth’ in one of my favorite films ever – director david lynch‘s 1986 surrealistic masterpiece blue velvet – in which dennis was nominated for a best supporting actor oscar! i was just looking at his wikipedia page – this man has been steadily working in hollywood since 1955 (his easy rider co-star jack nicholson was on hand today honoring dennis) the list of his films is like a mile long! my thoughts and prayers are with mr. hopper during this tough time – along with his family and friends! popbytes over & out for tonight – much love is going out to everyone – xoxo
