Bandaged and looking frail, actor and filmmaker Dennis Hopper has been honoured with a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.
The 73-year-old Dennis, who is suffering from prostate cancer, appeared gaunt and was helped to the stage by a friend. The actor explained that his bandages were the result of a fall outside his home.
Surrounded by his family, Dennis thanked Hollywood for being "my home and my schooling".
Jack Nicholson, Viggo Mortensen, David Lynch and Dwight Yoakam were among the luminaries on hand to honour their friend and colleague.
Hundreds of camera-toting spectators lined Hollywood Boulevard for the 30-minute ceremony. Dennis' star is in front of the Egyptian Theatre.
