For the second time in her life, Kathy Bates has been diagnosed with cancer. She survived ovarian cancer almost a decade ago and now told Kneepads that she was diagnosed with breast cancer a few weeks ago and has already had a double mastectomy. Her doctors told her that she will be around for a very long time. Kathy Bates is one of the best actresses I have ever seen. She can play anything from comedy to drama and be believable in any role. The thing I love about her is she is always willing to take chances and not be confined to one role or think that something is beneath her. Want her to do a cameo on Two And A Half Men? It probably looked dumb in the script, but Kathy pulled off playing Charlie Sheen and is nominated for an Emmy for it.
