Cancer-stricken actor Dennis Hopper finished filming his television series “Crash”, and the actor is reportedly telling his friends he is ready to die. Read more on Dennis Hopper’s health below.
Dennis Hopper, 73, was diagnosed with prostate cancer back in September. The cancer has spread to his bones.
“Dennis has come to grips with the fact that the end is likely near,” a friend reveals.
“He knew going into the last weeks of filming Crash that he was on borrowed time. His doctors had told him they were no longer able to contain the disease, and his condition had severely worsened.”
The legendary actor has starred in movies such as Easy Rider, Apocalypse Now, Blue Velvet and Hoosiers.
Hopper, who has a 6 year-old daughter with his fifth wife Victoria Duffy, 42, is now taking experimental treatment at USC Medical Center.
But Hopper’s condition has deteriorated and he was hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles before Christmas.
The actor has finished editing his 546 page book of photos he has taken. “Dennis calls the book his legacy, and he’s glad to see it completed,” a friend said.
“He knows the end is near, but he’s still the consummate professional that he’s always been. Dennis has gotten his affairs in order and said his goodbyes.”
