Steven Tyler's Secret Hepatitis Battle

26 September 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has secretly been battling hepatitis C, but he is finally ready to raise awareness of the dangerous disease. Hepatitis C, a viral infection of the blood that can lead to liver disease, is often transmitted through dirty needles. Recovering drug addict Tyler announced he is slowly getting better after a year of interferon treatments, which strengthen the immune system - and he is planning to speak publicly on Oprah Winfrey's talk show in order to warn people about the infection. He tells the New York Daily News, "It is nonexistent in my bloodstream . where it's like a complete cure. I've had hepatitis C for a long time, asymptomatic. I've been pretty quiet about this. The band took a break about three years ago. (My doctor) said now is the time, and it's 11 months of chemotherapy (interferon) so I went on that, and it about killed me. Hepatitis C is the one that, of all the people in this room, at least three have it and don't know it. It's the silent killer. I may go on Oprah and talk about this. I hope you don't mind me mentioning that." Tyler joins fellow celebrity hepatitis sufferers Pamela Anderson, Naomi Judd and Larry Hagman. »

Hagman Thrilled with Racy Role

7 August 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Veteran actor Larry Hagman is thrilled he got to guest star on sexy plastic surgery drama Nip/Tuck, because he was able to speak racy dialogue for the first time in his career. The actor has starred in such iconic feel-good shows such as I Dream Of Jeannie and Dallas, but he admits it was time to branch out into more adult territory. He tells US OK! magazine in Nip/Tuck he plays a patient who wants surgery on his penis. He "has his gonads removed. They say, 'What size would you like?' And I say 'kiwi size.' Forty years on television and I've never been able to say things like that!" But no one has teased him for his squeaky-clean screen past, adding, "Everyone's been so nice to me. Of course, I'm an icon and I expect that s**t!" »
