Dustin Hoffman Surgically Cured Of Cancer

May 28, 2014 by  

Dustin Hoffman Surgically Cured Of Cancer, Dustin Hoffman has been successfully treated for an undisclosed cancer.

There was no previous report of the 75-year-old acting legend falling ill, but his rep confirmed he has been cured.

‘It was detected early and he has been surgically cured,’ Jodi Gottlieb told People magazine. ‘Dustin is feeling great and is in good health.’

The two-time Oscar winner will reportedly ‘undergo doctor-recommended preventative treatments to minimize the chance of a recurrence in years to come.’

Hoffman’s rep did not reveal the type of cancer, but perhaps that’s a wise move after Michael Douglas’ eyebrow-raising comments about contracting throat cancer through oral sex.

The Rain Man actor was last seen looking healthy and in good spirits while on the Los Angeles set of Jon Favreau’s food truck flick, Chef.

Favreau posted two videos of Hoffman goofing around with co-stars Scarlett Johansson and Bobby Canavale in mid-July.

The comedy – due out May 9 – also features Robert Downey Jr., Amy Sedaris, SofĂ­a Vergara, John Leguizamo, and Garry Shandling.

In the fall, the six-time Golden Globe winner will shoot Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot alongside Dame Judi Dench.

Dustin certainly has plenty of familial support during his recovery, including his wife of 32 years Lisa and his six children.

The longtime couple are parents to 32-year-old Jacob, 30-year-old Rebecca, 28-year-old Maxwell, and 25-year-old Alexandra.

The Graduate star is also father to Jenna and step-daughter Karina from his previous marriage to Anne Byrne.
