Newsweek magazine published a photo of John Paul Jones, the famous actor who played Elvis Presley in the 1970s and 1980s, in which he wears a white shirt with a gold cuff and blue pants.
“I can’t believe he wore that shirt,” Jones said of his iconic white shirt, as reported by the Los Angeles Times.
Jones has long maintained that he wore the shirt for a number of reasons, including that it was his favorite shirt of the time, and that it made him feel better about his condition.
“There was a lot of pressure to have a certain look, to be the man who would be the first Elvis,” Jones told the Los Vegas Review Journal in 2014.
“But it was never like that.
It was never a big thing.”
The photo has been widely shared on social media, with many fans arguing that it is proof of Jones’ condition.
Jones’ shirt has been featured in advertisements for various brands, including Levi’s and Gap.
Jones told The New York Times in 2015 that he was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2013.
“He was a man of many talents, but he was a very stubborn man,” Jones explained in a 2015 interview with the Times.
“It wasn’t like, ‘Well, he’s sick, so let’s just get him a new one.’
He always said, ‘No, no, no.'”
Jones has also stated that he never had any prior health problems, adding that he suffered from a rare form of breast cancer for most of his life.
“My health is what it is,” he told the Times in 2014, in a bid to dispel the rumors.
“They always say you can’t have a disease and then the next day you get it.
That’s not true.
There’s nothing wrong with having a disease.
There are things you can do.”
Jones has remained on social mediaspiritual support services since 2015, and has received treatment for his condition from the Mayo Clinic.
His Facebook page has also received over 1 million shares.
In October, the actor told The Daily Beast that he has “never seen a photo like this in my life.”
