Dennis Hopper: Born to be wild

Dennis Hopper: Born to be wild

'Easy Rider' established Dennis Hopper as the poster boy of Sixties hedonism, yet his life off the screen was just as colourful.

"Dennis Hopper, the American actor who was the epitome of a Hollywood hellraiser and starred most memorably in the cult classic Easy Rider, died at home in California yesterday, aged 74. He had been suffering from prostate cancer.

Even from his deathbed, the hard-living star made headlines as he sued for divorce from his fifth wife Victoria Duffy in a split that was as rancorous as it was typically tumultuous".
