According to the latest cover of Globe Magazine, former Dallas and I Dream Of Jeanie actor, Larry Hagman, is nearing the end of his life.
In October of 2011, Larry announced that he had been diagnosed with a treatable form of cancer. He said, “As J.R. I could get away with anything – bribery, blackmail and adultery. But I got caught by cancer. I do want everyone to know that it is a very common and treatable form of cancer. I will be receiving treatment while working on the new Dallas series. I could not think of a better place to be than working on a show I love, with people I love.”
Earlier this month, Larry announced that his treatments for cancer were going well. From Globe’s report, it sounds grim:
Beloved Dallas and I Dream of Jeannie star Larry Hagman is bravely battling cancer, but pals believe the 80-year-old TV icon has just months to live. Read the new GLOBE’s touching article about his courageous fight and see a shocking recent photo showing a gaunt and fragile Hagman, who has lost 25 pounds and appears to be wasting away.
He is currently 80-years-old. Stay well, Larry and let’s hope that the rumors are not true.
