Michael Douglas talks about cancer

Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones After beating stage 4 throat cancer, the same illness that took two of his friends, Michael Douglas admits he now has new perspective of life. “When I was ill, I mostly lay on that couch. I watched a lot of sports, anything where I didn’t know the ending. I did miss working, but I was too weak to miss much of anything,” the actor said.

However, the loss of two friends and his successful recovery made Michael appreciate life more. He said: “Cancer does give you a new rejuvenation. I know what it’s like to be down. I lost a couple of good friends who had the same type of cancer that I did, and that makes you think. In the past, on purpose, I’ve never known what movie I’m going to do next. I never knew how I would feel when I finished a picture. Now it feels great to be back at work.”
