Dennis Hopper receives star on Walk of Fame in Hollywood


A gaunt-looking Dennis Hopper received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today as Jack Nicholson, his co-star in “Easy Rider,” and many of Hopper’s other friends like actor Viggo Mortensen, director David Lynch and singer Johnny Mathis, looked on.

“You gave me a life I would never have seen as a boy from Dodge City, Kansas,” he said.

The 73-year-old Hopper, his hand bandaged in a fall on Thursday, is suffering from terminal cancer and had to be helped on stage, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Among Hopper’s numerous films are “Rebel Without a Cause,” “Apocalypse Now” and “Blue Velvet.”

While his health has been slipping in recent weeks (he is said to weigh about 100 pounds by his doctors), he was permitted to attend the ceremony.

Hopper has been involved in a bitter divorce from his wife, Victoria.
