Hollywood movie veteran Dustin Hoffman has successfully undergone treatment for cancer. Who even know that Hoffman was even sick in the first place?
The Rain Man actor’s representative, Jodi Gottlieb, went public with the actor’s secret health battle on Tuesday, although she has yet to disclose further details about his condition.
A statement released to the media said, “It (the cancer) was detected early and he has been surgically cured. Dustin is feeling great and is in good health.”
Thank God for that! We’re happy that he has good news to share with the world with regard to his condition.
Hoffman is expected to follow up the surgery with doctor-recommended preventative treatments. The actor’s cancer news comes in the middle of a busy year – he recently completed filming for Jon Favreau’s new film Chef, and is due to head back to work to star opposite Dame Judi Dench in a movie adaptation of Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot this fall.
