Dennis Hopper Passes Away

Dennis Hopper died today in his home in Venice, California at 74, reports TMZ. The actor was suffering from prostate cancer as of late, and going through a bitter divorce with his wife Patricia, and sources say his family was at his side when he passed.

Dennis Hopper accepts his star on the Walk of Fame earlier this year. (Bauer Griffin)Hopper first revealed his fight against cancer in October. At the ceremony honoring him with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame back in March, he looked gaunt and weak in an oversized coat and a newsboy cap that shaded his face. In recent court papers, Hopper's doctor said the actor weighed about 100 pounds.

Hopper is best known for his roles in films like Easy Rider and Speed. One of his most famed movies was also Apocolypse Now. Details are starting to emerge about his death and our best wishes go out to his friends and family.
