In what could well be his last official public appearance, a decidedly gaunt looking Dennis Hopper received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Friday in Los Angeles. By his side during the induction ceremony were his 7-year-old daughter Galen Grier Hopper and actor Jack Nicholson.
Hopper has terminal prostate cancer and can no longer receive chemotherapy because he is too weak to withstand the rigorous treatment. Weighing just 100 pounds, the 73-year-old had a bandage on his head and a wrap on one wrist — reportedly injuries caused in a recent fall.
The actor is currently in a contentious divorce with his fifth wife, Victoria Hopper. His lawyer has filed papers claiming that Dennis is too ill to participate in a court deposition that has been scheduled by his estranged wife’s legal team. Hopper’s doctor has signed an affidavit stating that testifying “could threaten his survival”.
Besides his young daughter, the actor has three other children: Marin Hopper, 47, Ruthanna Hopper, 35, and Henry Lee Hopper, 19. They all participated in the HWOF induction today, as seen in the photos and video below:
