Gene Hackman was observed out and about with his wife, who is rarely seen. Fans couldn’t help but notice his emaciated appearance, which prompted countless comments about him being unrecognizable.

 

Gene Hackman, 94, made a rare public appearance with his wife, Betsy Arakawa, after decades of retirement. Hackman wore a checkered button-down shirt under a gray vest and green-gray cargo pants to round out his look. He paired his appearance with a cap and sunglasses.

Hackman remained ambulatory, but he relied on a cane in one hand and his wife in the other. The couple’s outing was important because it was their first public appearance together in more than two decades.
