(Newser) – Dennis Hopper received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today, appearing weak from his battle with terminal prostate cancer but pleased with the honor. "I just want to thank you," said Hopper, 73. "That's all I can do." The Easy Rider and Blue Velvet star is involved in a nasty divorce; his doctor said in a statement related to the case that he was too weak to be questioned by his wife's lawyers, but the star ceremony would be "a positive experience in every way," CNN reports.
