Saying that he's "feeling great and in good health," a rep for Dustin Hoffman confirmed yesterday that the actor recently underwent successful cancer surgery.
Unlike other celebrities of late like Angelina Jolie
and Michael Douglas
, Hoffman did not reveal the type of surgery or the treatments he'll pursue to avoid a recurrence of the disease.
The 75-year-old recently finished filming “Chef” with co-stars Scarlett Johansson and Robert Downey Jr. and will next film the movie “Boys Choir” later this year or early 2014.
Earlier this year, Hoffman made his directorial debut with “Quartet.”
“I would develop stuff like every other actor,” he told “Good Morning America.” “The most important part of it is when you’re in your 30s and 40s and 50s, you think you’ve got all the time in the world. Suddenly, you’re 75 — you say [beat], or get off the pot.”
