Clearly; there is more to being a star than having a star on the Hollywood walk of Fame and famous friends.

If you look at his complexion, Dennis looks like the healthiest person there except the young girl. Nicholson needs to lose like 30 pounds, Viggo needs a shave and cut, man with the John Lennon sunglasses needs to lose like 20 pounds easy, the two guys kneeling need to get on iron pills, start breathing and lose 40 pounds ASAP.

The opposite of depression isn't happiness, the opposite of depression is VITALITY. Hopper projects it. Look in his eyes. He knows the TAO, he is it.

First time I've read all the comments and there are no slams. Only proves how beloved he is. He will always be Frank ("Blue Velvet") to me. Who else (maybe Gary Oldman) plays such a beloved villain? Dennis, you won't ever have to worry about being remembered. Thanks for sharing your life with us.
