Patrick Swayze has refused to kick the butt, despite knowing that smoking had probably caused his pancreatic cancer.
In a recent interview with American TV personality Barbara Walters, the 'Ghost' actor revealed that he would only go as far as admitting that smoking caused pancreatic cancer.
"I will go so far as to say probably smoking had something to do with my pancreatic cancer," Contactmusic quoted Patrick, as telling Barbara.
However Patrick, who has been battling the mortal disease for 12 months, stated that he has definitely cut down on his smoking.
He maintained that he is healthy and strong, despite tabloid reports, which suggest he's close to death.
