Washington (ANI): Cancer-stricken celebrity Patrick Swayze is said to be in good spirits as he trains for the second season of his TV show 'The Beast'. Swayze, 56, had been pictured looking frail and gaunt, and so he asked his Ghost co-star Whoopi Goldberg to dispel notions of him being near death.
Goldberg, 53, revealed on her morning talk show, 'The View', on March 17 that the actor was fine and working hard. “He's actually quite good. He's in very very good spirits. He's in the middle of writing a book with (his wife) Lisa," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
“He's working his tail off. He's sick, there's no getting around it, but, like all of us, we all know we're going to die. We don't know when and what's going to take us. As it turns out, there's no expiration date on his a**, so he's going forward. He's going back into training for The Beast, because he's running and jumping in it," she said.
Swayze has also denied losing his hair to chemotherapy, and insisted that he has cut his own locks off for his role in the show, and Goldberg has supported him. “He says he shaved his head. Whatever you're reading, just know he's kicking butt. He's doing one day at a time," she added.
