Ben Stiller just made a shocking health confession.
In a new interview, the 50-year-old actor revealed he was diagnosed with prostate cancer two years ago.
"It came out of the blue for me. I had no idea," Ben said on The Howard Stern Show. "At first, I didn't know what was gonna happen. I was scared. It just stopped everything in your life because you can't plan for a movie because you don't know what's gonna happen."

"The first thing I did when I got diagnosed was get on the internet to try to learn. I saw [Robert De Niro] had had it. I called him right away," the father-of-two continued.
Thankfully, Ben is now cancer-free, two years after his diagnosis at age 48. "Afterwards, it just gives you an appreciation for life," he added. "Every six months I'm taking [tests] to make sure I'm clear."
