LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dustin Hoffman is doing well after being successfully treated for cancer.
A spokeswoman for the 75-year-old actor-director confirmed a People.com report Tuesday that says Hoffman is “feeling great and in good health” after undergoing cancer treatment.
The actor/director will undergo doctor-recommended preventative treatments to minimize the chance of a recurrence in years to come, People reports.
Publicist Jodi Gottlieb told the site that Hoffman’s cancer was detected early and “surgically cured.” She offered no other details.
Hoffman, who made his directorial debut last year with the film “Quartet,” recently wrapped production on Jon Favreau’s “Chef.”
