“It came out of the blue for me. I had no idea,” said Ben Stiller on his recent appearance on The Howard Stern Show. “I had no idea.”
It’s news that we’ve learned this morning that you never want to hear or report about. This is the first time he’s made the news public while appearing alongside his surgeon on the SiriusXM program. Stiller did go on to say though that he found out about his prostate cancer two years ago and eventually had surgery to remove the prostate. He went on to inform Stern that he is indeed cancer-free but gets tested quite often.
Stiller’s latest appearance in film was the sequel Zoolander 2 earlier this year. Upcoming projects include acting roles in Brad’s Status and Yeh Din Ka Kissa. He’s also producing Super Sad True Love Story, Hollywood Renegade, Why Him?, and The Polka King. And the sequel Dodgeball 2 is also in the works where we can only hope he reprises one of his most iconic roles as White Goodman.
The good news is that Stiller is cancer-free and we all hope that it stays that way. Take a listen to the interview with Stern right here.
