Dennis Hopper was a remarkable and legendary actor who paved a niche for himself in the entertainment industry and maintained his relevance for a period of 56 years. During this period, he enjoyed the highest level of fame in his career in the 80’s after he starred in the mystery film Blue Velvet where he played the Frank Booth character.
His impeccable acting in this movie eventually earned him 5 awards among which include an Independent Spirit Award. However, his career had been launched long before in 1954 as he was featured in the anthology series titled Cavalcade of America.
The following year, he branched into the movie industry through a role in the drama Rebel Without a Cause. In the late 60’s, he became a director as he worked on the film titled The Trip while he received the title of a writer after working on the drama film Easy Rider.
In the early years of his career, Hopper was a cute young man who kept an average length haircut and preferred the baby face look without any beard or mustache. As he advanced in age, he opted for a longer haircut and decided to begin nurturing his beards.
Later on in his life just as Mother Nature began turning his hair grey, he went back to his beardless look and kept the sides of his hair grey while the middle area of his hair remained dark brown.
Regarding his looks, this was the best season of his life as he looked rather ravishing. As he continued to age, all of his hair eventually turned grey and he decided to nurture his beards which had then become grey as well. Even in old age, Hopper continued to look very handsome.
Right from his early years, he always had a lean figure which he tried to maintain throughout his lifetime.
At the point of his tragic death in 2010, Hopper had been married 4 times, divorced thrice and had 4 children.
