 Co-Stars Stunned By Dennis Hooper's Cancer Report
Veteran actor Dennis Hooper's 'The Last Film Festival' co-stars were shocked to hear about his cancer reports.

His movie colleagues were stunned to know that the 73-year-old actor was diagnosed with cancer because he seemed to be in "great health" while filming the comedy.

The Easy Rider star announced publicly his battle with the disease in October 09, revealing he is being treated for prostate cancer, but fresh fears of his health sparked in March (10), when he was too sick to even appear at a deposition in his ongoing divorce battle with wife.

Hopper shot scenes for "The Last Film Festival" in early (09), just months after his illness was made public.

Now, director Linda Yellen has confessed that the news came as a shock to her, reports The Daily Express.

"He never once complained... He is a brilliant, brilliant man. The younger cast members absolutely worshipped him," she tells New York Post gossip column Page Six.

"He was in great health and had enormous charisma when we were shooting. He eagerly worked long days. So this has all come as a nasty shock," she added.
