Dennis Hopper's last interview

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.

    Please, everyone knows that that wife was a total operator. First she claimed Dennis was mentally incompetent when he wasn't, then she claimed he was well enough to be deposed like a week before he died...after she had stolen his art and made off with his youngest kid at Christmas. His last Christmas!!! Also, she was having an affair. She made his final days miserable (as he is quoted as saying in Vanity Fair) and she deserves a whole lotta nuthin.

    Blue Velvet was the biggest piece of crap you've ever seen? Okay Jane, maybe you should stick with real filmmaking like twilight or transformers [Sarcasm] F&ck you you stupid little sl/ut. Dennis was such a talented actor and never did it for the money like 75% of todays "actors". I hope you choke Jane.

    Dennis was no doubt a talented actor, but in the realm of being a descent human he lacked success.

    I like how the wife was demanding he show up in court and accused him of lying about how sick he was.....he died a week later. Gold digger – you betcha. She should get something though – but only what the pre-nup amount. As a single mom who raised two kids on an income of less than 20,000 a year (although it was 15 years ago) with no welfare it galls me when the ex wife wants 50,000 + a month. He made the money, he should be able to say where it goes when he is gone. I wish the divorce had been finalized. A lesson to all – don't wait.

      Like I said, stick to Twilight and that sort of piece of crap. Bullsh!t acting in all that crap. Dennis was the man and David Lynch is a real filmmaker, you see very little of that these days. I would fck you, you stupid f$ck, you.

    Cat, the divorce never went through last I checked. They were in the process of it. And who's to say she wasn't as bad as he claimed she was ? You can't really bash anyone until you know all sides of the story. Neither one of them sounds like saints.

    That being sad, I liked Dennis because I thought he was a good actor. He seemed to enjoy playing the villain, and he was quite good at it. But for me the best actor to play a villain will always be Christopher Walken.

    Never cared for Dennis Hopper... especially after what I read about what he'd done to his wife. [Divorced her before he died so that she wouldn't get a dime]. 😦
