Dennis Hopper Terminally Ill

By Kevin Ash - 08/04/2010

Cult bike road movie Easy Rider star Dennis Hopper is said to be terminally ill with prostate cancer, according to his lawyer.

The claim came in response to a request for the actor to undergo questioning by his wife‘s attorney in their bitter divorce proceedings. Hopper, 73, who also directed Easy Rider, filed to end the couple‘s 14 year marriage in January this year.

According to his physician Dr David Agus he weighs just 100lb (45kg) and is too weak to undergo chemotherapy.
