Swayze Skipped Painkillers While Shooting

Jan 7, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Patrick Swayze tells Barbara Walters that he rejected painkilling drugs while shooting the new A&E series “The Beast” because they would have taken the edge off his performance, the Associated Press reports. Swayze has been battling pancreatic cancer and acknowledged his time may be running out. “I’d say five years is pretty wishful thinking,” he says. “Two years seems likely if you’re going to believe statistics. I want to last until they find a cure, which means I’d better get a fire under it.”
