Kathy Bates Kept Her Ovarian Cancer Battle Very Quiet, On Thursday’s episode of “Anderson,” Academy Award-winning actress Kathy Bates will discuss her secret battle with ovarian cancer nearly a decade ago.

Anderson Cooper tweeted a video preview clip of the interview ahead of Thursday’s broadcast. In it, the 63-year-old explains why she kept her cancer to herself.

“When you were going through ovarian cancer…you didn’t let people know. Why?” Cooper asked.

“I was advised to,” Bates said. “I was about to go into a movie at that time — ‘Little Black Book,’ with Brittany Murphy, who I miss very much…My doctors at the time, they had to get insurance approval and all of that, so I was very quiet about it and had to go back to work right away.

“And I guess part of it was just…I don’t know how to explain it,” the actress continued. “You just …nobody else really knows what you’re going through except another cancer patient, and even though your family is supportive and surrounds you…I just got the point where I would go to chemo by myself, and just really go through it on my own.
