To the cheers of fans and family members, a smiling Dennis Hopper received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday.

Many of Hopper’s Hollywood friends were in attendance, including Jack Nicholson, director David Lynch and singer Johnny Mathis.

Hopper thanked them for giving him a thrilling career. “You gave me a life I would never have seen as a boy from Dodge City, Kansas,” he said.

Hopper, who is battling what his doctors have described as terminal cancer, was helped onto the stage. His hand and forehead were bandaged, the result, he said, of a fall on Thursday.

Hopper, who has starred in numerous movies including “Speed,” “Blue Velvet” and “Hoosiers,” also co-wrote and directed “Easy Rider.”

Hopper’s battle with cancer has become public because it’s coinciding with his divorce proceedings. According to court papers, the actor weighs about 100 pounds, but his doctors said he’s healthy enough to attend the ceremony.

Hopper, 73, and his wife, Victoria, have been locked in a bitter feud since the actor, director and artist filed to end the couple’s nearly 14-year marriage in January.
