Despite his battle with cancer and a messy divorce, Dennis Hopper is “extraordinarily strong,” according to longtime friend Lauren Hutton.

Access spoke with Lauren about Dennis and his health on Thursday night at the “The Joneses” premiere in LA.

“I saw Dennis a month ago, he had great…it was Dennis – right in the eyes!” Lauren said explaining that the 73-old-actor, who is battling prostate cancer, is still full of life.

“He has incredible will,” Lauren explained. “He has a couple of more [chemotherapy sessions] to go through…He’s pretty extraordinarily strong.”

As previously reported on Access Hollywood, on Monday, a judge ruled that Dennis’ estranged wife Victoria and daughter Galen are allowed to live on his property during their divorce. He was also ordered to pay $12,000 a month in spousal and child support.

Dennis and Victoria filed for divorce in January after 14 years of marriage.
