Jack Nicholson's Hopper Tribute

Subscribe To:

Jack Nicholson paid tribute to his "soulmate" Dennis Hopper at his funeral yesterday (02.06.10).

The actor - who starred alongside Dennis in 'Easy Rider' - joined the star's close friends and family as he was laid to rest in Taos, New Mexico, the town where he wrote, filmed and edited the classic film.

Jack said: "It was a very singular relationship I had with him, like nobody else. We were soulmates in a way. I really miss him."

Other famous faces to attend to the memorial service included actors Dean Stockwell and Val Kilmer.

Dennis' brothers and son Henry Lee acted as pallbearers, carrying his coffin to and from the church.

Guests were flown out two private planes from Los Angeles.

The actor - who also had three daughters, Marin, Ruthiana and Galen - died on Saturday (29.05.10) at his Californian home after losing his battle against prostate cancer.

He was surrounded by family and friends for his final moments.

Hopper was married five times during his lifetime, and in the final months before his death he was embroiled in a bitter divorce battle with his wife of 14 years Victoria Duffy, mother of seven-year-old Galen.

During the divorce Victoria alleged the actor's three children from previous marriages had turned him against her and wanted her to be cut from his will.

The legal battle became so acrimonious Hopper applied for a court order to keep his 42-year-old spouse at least 10ft away from him to eliminate unnecessary stress.
