Two-time Oscar winner Dustin is back and feeling better than ever after successfully undergoing surgery for cancer.
Dustin Hoffman, 75, has been treated for cancer and he is currently in good health, his rep confirms. Read on for more details.
Dustin Hoffman’s Cancer Treatment Successful — He’s ‘Cured,’ Rep Says
Dustin is doing much better after undergoing surgery, Dustin’s rep Jodi Gottlieb told People magazine on Aug. 6.
“It [the cancer] was detected early and he has been surgically cured,” she says. “Dustin is feeling great and is in good health.”
The legendary actor and director is expected to undergo further treatment to prevent a reoccurrence, which is normal procedure after most cancer surgeries.
Jodi declined to share any further information about Dustin’s health, but this is such good news! Dustin, who has been married to Lisa Gottsegen since 1980, is a father of six and grandfather of three, and his family is probably so relieved that he beat his cancer! We hope Dustin gets well — and stays well — soon.
Dustin Hoffman To Film New Movie This Fall
No rest for the weary! The iconic star of such films as Tootsie, Rain Man and The Graduate recently wrapped production on Jon Favreau’s Chef in mid-July, and he will be back in action soon when he begins filming Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot with Dame Judi Dench in the fall.
The six-time Golden Globe winner will also star in the flick Boys Choir, which is scheduled to begin production later this year or in early 2014.
We look forward to seeing much more of Dustin in the future. Who knows — maybe he’ll even pick up a couple more Oscars next year! He deserves them!
