He looks remarkably good for someone with cancer. He’s 65 now, but since he hasn’t acted for a while, and has been out of the spotlight, when I first saw the video I immediately thought he looks a lot like his dad Kirk Douglas now.
He is so upbeat, positive and brave that I feel even more sorry for him. The part when David hugs him might get to you – sad! Hope he pulls through well. I can’t help thinking of his kids. Even if he survives the treatment for the Stage 4 cancer, it could affect his voice.
Michael himself revealed that his cancer is linked to his drinking.
“I smoked cigarettes and I drank and this particular type of cancer is caused by alcohol drinking.”
Michael Douglas has always been great in so many movies. My favourites include Romancing of the Stone, Jewel of the Nile, War of the Roses and of course Fatal Attraction from the 80’s. He was so great in Disclosure and The Game too. Wow, I didn’t realise how many movies he’s made – prolific! There are tons more too.
