Dennis Hopper Receives A Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame
A frail but smiling Dennis Hopper was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday, 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 100 pounds (45 kg) in weight and to be too weak to continue chemotherapy. Hopper was accompanied by Jack Nicholson and 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.
