Catherine Zeta-Jones is very upset that it took so long for doctors to discover her husband’s, actor Michael Douglas, stage 4 throat cancer.
“It makes me furious they didn’t detect it earlier … he sought every option and nothing was found,” Zeta-Jones tells People in its brand new issue.
“I know maybe I should be stronger, but emotionally I just don’t want to see that … the hardest part is seeing his fatigue, because Michael is never tired.”
Douglas appeared on David Letterman and let the audience know that he had finished his first 8 week round of radiation and chemotherapy to hopefully stop the cancer growth.
Michael, 65, claims that he had been suffering from throat problems all summer, but doctors did not see any caner. When he returned from his European summer vacation, finally the cancer was found.
“The expectations [of recovery] are good,” Douglas told Letterman, noting he has about an 80 percent chance of recovery.
The actor’s latest film, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, hits theaters September 24.
Michael Douglas is one of my favorite actors. I hope he is able to make a full and speedy recovery.
What is your favorite Michael Douglas movie? I loved him in Romancing The Stone with Kathleen Turner.
