Fans said goodbye to Dennis Hopper in May when he died of prostate cancer, but the actor lives on - in our hearts and on our newsstands.
In Hopper’s last interview, which will appear in the August issue of Vanity Fair, he opens up about his personal life, his greatest achievements in the biz and more.
“‘Easy Rider’ and ‘The Last Movie’ were the only films that I made totally on my own,” he said.
And while Hopper said “Easy Rider” was his greatest career achievement, his greatest achievement as an actor was “Blue Velvet.”
“I’ve been in such incredible movies,” he said. “I think at one point I’d been in the five most expensive movies ever made - not that I had large parts in them.”
Hopper’s interview with Vanity Fair, which is currently available on newsstands in New York and L.A., will be available nationally on July 6.
