Dustin Hoffman Treated For Cancer, Cured
Dustin Hoffman recently underwent treatment for cancer that has left the 75-year-old actor disease-free.
Thought the details of Hoffman’s cancer have not been revealed, his rep Jodi Gottlieb stated that the treatment was successful. “[The cancer] was detected early and he has been surgically cured," Gottlieb told People magazine. "Dustin is feeling great and is in good health."
Following the successful surgery, Hoffman will continue to undergo preventative treatments recommended by his physicians to lessen the risk of a recurrence of the cancer in the future.
The two-time Oscar winner has not slowed down in the wake of his diagnosis and subsequent surgery. Over the last year, Hoffman’s been promoting his directorial debut in Quartet, which stars Maggie Smith, Tom Courtenay, Billy Connolly, Pauline Collins and Michael Gambon. He also just recently finished production on Chef, a film about a professional chef who starts running a food truck after losing his restaurant job.
Other upcoming projects for Hoffman include an adaptation of Roald Dahl’s Esiot Trot and feature Boys Choir.
