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.

An ailing Dennis Hopper honored in Hollywood

During my time at CNN, I've covered dozens and dozens of Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremonies, but I can't remember one surrounded with as much anticipation as Friday's event – when actor Dennis Hopper's star was unveiled on the famous boulevard.

The "Easy Rider" star has been in headlines recently because of his health (he's dying of prostate cancer) and a messy divorce that, his doctor says, is hampering his cancer treatment.

The dedication ceremony had been on the books for months, but many in Hollywood and the press wondered if the ill actor would even be able to make an appearance.
