Dolph Lundgren was spotted arriving at the Four Seasons Hotel on Saturday.
The 65-year-old actor cut a casual figure in a cream zip-up hoodie and trendy black track pants as he stepped out in Los Angeles after recently opening up about his cancer diagnosis.
As he dropped off his car at the valet, the Rocky IV star sported a stylish pair of sunglasses to shield his eyes from the sun.
The filmmaker — who was spotted out with his 25-year-old fiancé, Emma Krokdal, last month — also donned a pair of black sneakers with a contrasting white foam platform.
Earlier this week, he revealed he has been battling cancer for eight years and speculated whether his past use of steroids for bodybuilding is to blame.

For his daytime outing, he slicked back his silver hair in his usual hairstyle and opted for a clean-shaven look.
He did not sport any other accessories for an overall casual and comfortable ensemble.
And Lundgren was spotted holding only his cell phone and nothing else as he made his arrival.
The Swedish star opened up about his battle on ‘In Depth with Graham Besinger’ and revealed he was first diagnosed with lung cancer in 2015.
Lundgren said he went into remission but then the cancer returned in 2020 and was told he had two to three years left to live by one doctor.
He had went for a second opinion and said the treatment he is now being administered has resulted in the tumors shrinking.
In a clip from the interview, while still wearing a hospital gown, he said: ‘It’s the day after my surgery, they took out one tumor, then they took out another two they found and another three small ones.
‘Hopefully it’s cleaned out. If it dies, it dies.’

Lundgren had been referring to his memorable quote in the 1985 film Rocky IV, after his character Ivan Drago kills Apollo Creed during their exhibition match.
Speaking to Bensinger, he spoke of how he discovered he had cancer again in 2020.
Lundgren said: ‘In 2020, I was back in Sweden and I had some kind of acid reflux, I didn’t know what it was so I did an MRI.
‘They found that there were a few more tumors around that area.’
He continued: ‘They found one more tumor in the liver, so I was like aw s**** okay.
‘At that point it started to hit me that this was something serious. The surgeon called me and said it had grown, it was too big, it had grown to the size of a small lemon.
‘I asked them how long do I have left, I think he said 2-3 years but I could tell in his voice he thought it was less. I thought that was it for sure.’
Lundgren said that the use of steroids had an impact on his body.

He said: ‘I tried steroids back in the 80s, 90s. I don’t know if that is something to do with the cancer, of course it struck me as it could have something to do with it.
‘I thought about it, you always think you’ve made a mistake. I think maybe there is some connection between testosterone therapy and cancer.
‘I was on steroids when I was younger, on and off for maybe ten years. Depending on the kind of movie I made.’
Fiancée Emma Krokdal told Bensinger: ‘His mouth got really sore, his hands got sore, and he couldn’t eat anything.
‘That was a struggle, he was losing weight. We realized it was a lot worse than we thought, they started talking about tumors in the lung, stomach, spine, outside the kidneys.’

His daughter Ida Lundgren told Bensinger: ‘It hit me when I had a deep conversation with my Dad about what would happen if he passed away.
‘That was a horrible conversation, it was a tough time. I have to be strong for my sister.’
Lundgren said he then went seeking a second opinion on his diagnosis and spoke to Dr Alexandra Drakaki.
Following a change in treatment, Lundgren said with within three months his tumors had been shrinking between twenty and thirty per cent.
Lundgren continued: ‘You just appreciate being lucky enough to be alive, and you appreciate every moment there is.’
Largely known for his roles in action packed films, Lundgren’s breakthrough role was as Ivan Drago in Rocky IV.
He would later reprised his role as Drago in Creed II in 2018.
After a long spell of working on direct-to-video films during the 90s, he returned to Hollywood in 2010 in The Expendables, alongside Rocky co-star Sylvester Stallone.
Since then he has reprised his role of Gunnar Jensen in the second and third movie in the series, with a forth expected later this year.
The full episode is due to debut later this month.
Revealed: The dangers of abusing steroids
Anabolic steroids are powerful, manufactured drugs that mimic the effects of the testosterone.
Such medicines are prescription-only, given to stimulate muscle growth following surgery and to treat some kinds of anaemia.
Men with low testosterone levels can also get them drugs, which can come as pills, injections, gels and patches.
Yet, thousands across the world take the drugs without medical advice in pursuit of Hollywood-like muscles or as performance enhancers.
Doctors warn, however, the drugs — classed as a Class C in Britain and a schedule III in the US — are addictive and have a catalogue of serious side-effects.
Side effects can include reduced sperm count, infertility, shrunken testicles, erectile dysfunction, hair loss, breast development, severe acne and stomach pain.
Having too much testosterone in the body can lead to increased aggression, dubbed ‘roid rage’, insomnia and anxiety.
Studies have also linked steroids to an increased risk of prostate cancer.
Anabolic steroids are different to corticosteroids, another type of steroid drug that’s more commonly prescribed.
When doctors prescribe steroids, they always advise coming off slowly by gradually reducing the dose. Sudden withdrawal can trigger symptoms including depression, insomnia and headaches.
