Dennis Hopper and wife Victoria Duffy arrive at the 2009 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on February 22, 2009 in West Hollywood, CaliforniaActor Dennis Hopper is dying and too weak to undergo chemotherapy to treat prostate cancer, his lawyer has said in court papers. The Easy Rider star is also 'too ill' to testify in his own contentious divorce from wife Victoria Duffy-Hopper.

As evidence, Attorney Joseph Mannis included statements from Hopper's physician, Dr David Agus, who revealed that the actor currently weighs less than 7st 2lbs (45kg) and any questioning by his wife's lawyers "could actually threaten his ability to survive the current health crisis."
