The 75-year-old actor wrapped up production for a movie entitled Chef in mid-July. Though information on his diagnosis and treatment is scarce, it is believed that Hoffman underwent treatment after production wrapped. According to Fox News, he will undergo preventative treatments to keep the cancer from returning.

Hoffman joins a growing list of stars who were diagnosed with cancer and successfully treated for the disease. Most recently, Angelina Jolie and Michael Douglass both made very public statements about their cancer diagnoses and roads to recovery.
