Dennis Hopper's son, Henry Hopper, 21, has been accused of raping a 15-year-old girl after he plied her with alcohol and drugs. The young actor, who starred in Gus Van Sant's 'Restless,' is being sued by the mother of the now 16-year-old girl whose identity has been kept under wraps.
Sean Penn and Robin Wright's divorce was finalized this week, after almost three years of separation, reconciliation, re-separation and legal wrangling. The couple, who had their first child in 1991 and married in 1996, came to an agreement on dividing their assets and custody of their 17-year-old son, Hopper, yesterday, according to People.
When we heard the sad news of Dennis Hopper's passing, we got to thinking about how, even though he is most remembered for playing "crazy" characters, in his younger days he had the looks to become a matinee idol. And this got us thinking about all those other actors from times gone by who make us wish we had been born several decades earlier. Here now is a list of 10 Hollywood Hotties that we miss. (Since it's so hard to rank levels of sexiness, we're presenting these men to you in alphabetical order!)
After 74 glorious and rambunctious years on this earth, Hollywood hellraiser Dennis Hopper has died from prostate cancer, leaving behind an impressively long legacy of a life, if not lived necessarily well, than lived abundantly full. He was loved and he was hated, often concurrently, and by none more so than the women who survived him: ex-wives Brooke Hayward, Michelle Phillips, Daria Halprin, Katherine LaNasa and estranged wife Victoria Duffy. Let us begin at the end with the indomitable Victoria Duffy, the fifth, final and longest-reigning wife, who, despite his best efforts, remained legally "his" to the very end, restraining order and all.
Life in the celebrity romance lane certainly has been a bit bumpy as of late. What, with all the restraining orders, sex rehab and feminine hygiene products out there — yikes! So today, let us pretend that Peaches Geldof has not sunk her heroin-stained mitts into Eli Roth. That Victoria Hopper did not try to kill the already mostly-dead Dennis Hopper. That Michelle "Bombshell McGee" never existed. And that Courtney Love did indeed just make up her relationship with hotelier Andre Balazs. Happy April Fool's Day!
Originally it seemed like Dennis Hopper's deathbed divorce from his fifth marriage to Victoria Hopper was orchestrated in part by greedy grown children intent on cutting their stepmother and half-sister out from the will. You felt sorry for Victoria, seemingly the victim of blended-family tensions, slapped with restraining orders and left with nothing to provide for her and Dennis' six-year-old daughter. Well, it turns about that Vicki is a bit of a biddy, an evil step-mother and prototypical Hollywood fifth wife. She's in it for the money and isn't leaving until her purse is full and his frail frame is six feet under.
Says Hopper's doctor, "It is my belief and recommendation that the less Mr Hopper has to do with his estranged wife at this time, the more likely he is to have his life extended." His wife Victoria has been ordered to stay a minimum of 10 feet away from Hopper.
Actor Dennis Hopper, famous for his roles in Easy Rider and Apocalypse Now, while in the final stages of prostate cancer, is bizarrely filing for divorce from his fifth wife, Victoria Duffy. Rumor has it that a disgruntled daughter is behind things.
Straight out of a soap opera, a dying Dennis Hopper — purportedly "mentally incapacitated from the enormous amounts of medication he is on given his state, according to a family friend — has filed for divorce from his wife of fourteen years, Victoria Hopper.
