Jack Nicholson and Val Kilmer were among the actors who joined dozens of Dennis Hopper's relatives and friends to remember the two-time Oscar nominee at a memorial Mass in New Mexico.

Hopper's simple wooden coffin was ushered into the adobe chapel at San Francisco de Asis church. The actor died on Saturday aged 74 at his home in Los Angeles. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2009.

Nicholson, cast alongside Hopper in Easy Rider, described him as a soul mate.
