Kathy Bates has revealed that she's been battling cancer, in news that comes as a surprise to many. Bates, who's a previous Oscar-winner and star of films including 'Misery,' broke the news to chat show host Anderson Cooper, according to People.
"I was contracted to go into a movie at that time, Little Black Book with Brittany Murphy, who I miss very much," said Bates, continuing "My doctors at the time, they had to get insurance approval and all of that so I was very quiet about it and had to go back to work right away."
