Tom Alter is fighting cancer

Veteran theatre and film personality Tom Alter, 67, is battling stage four skin cancer at a Mumbai hospital, his son said on Monday.

Upset over “factually incorrect” stories about his father suffering stage four bone cancer, Jamie shared, “It is what is called a squamous cell carcinoma (a type of skin cancer). It is a relapse of the same thing which had happened last year and unfortunately, for various reasons, it was not detected at that time and has come back.”

Last year, Tom Alter had to get his thumb amputated due to the condition. Alter has been admitted for a week in Mumbai's Saifee Hospital.

I think (that Hollywood has good roles for senior actors).  It is a good thing because the more senior you get, ideally speaking, the finer you become as a craftsman. So, hopefully they continue to write roles for us and hopefully I will continue to get some of them. The whole paradigm is changing and there is room for everything.’

Actress Sonakshi Sinha has praised Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, terming her a woman of substance.

Priyanka, the goodwill ambassador for Unicef, is currently in Jordan to help children uprooted by the civil war in Syria.

“What Priyanka Chopra is doing right now with Unicef is what we must all aspire to do in life — make a difference. Woman of substance,” Sonakshi tweeted.

Chopra shared a series of photos of herself spending time with the families of the affected.

‘Happy to have strong actresses’

Actor Mark Ruffalo says it is great to have strong, beautiful and intelligent women like Cate Blanchett and Tessa Thompson in Thor: Ragnarok.

“It is great that we have Blanchett and Thompson, these two amazing, powerful, strong, beautiful, intelligent women, playing these two important, integral characters in this movie,” Ruffalo said in a statement.

Ruffalo will reprise the role of Hulk in the third part of Thor, which also stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor.

Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi and also stars Idris Elba, Tom Hiddelston, Anthony Hopkins and Jeff Goldblum among others.
