Damn Vincent Gallo for cursing cancer on Roger Ebert! Ebert will be going back into surgery on June 16 to remove a cancerous growth on his salivary gland. Back in 2002, the film critic underwent surgery for papillary thyroid cancer. A year later he was back in the operating room for the salivary gland and afterward he went through radiation therapy. Not long before Ebert first showed signs of the cancer, actor Vincent Gallo had coincidentally cursed the disease on Ebert after receiving a bad review from him.
Ebert told Chicago Sun-Times columnist Robert Feder that the cancer, "isn't life threatening," and he'll, "continue to function as a film critic during this time."
We at Cinematical wish him a very quick and healthy recovery.
