I didn't realize Kirk was still alive. Good for Michael, I've always liked him.

Hope they also get to go to seaworld - I was at seaworld yesterday and saw the winter skating show which was really good.

Re: Michael Douglas reveals throat cancer at stage 4

I always liked Michael Douglas and enjoyed his work throughout the years. This is really sad.

Enjoy these photos of him because there won't be very many more.

I hope he's free of pain during these times.

I hope he inherited some of his dad's toughness. Kirk has had numerous strokes and is still going strong in his mid-90s.

Michael Douglas says tumor gone, recovery hopeful

NEW YORK Michael Douglas says his tumor is gone and that he may have beaten throat cancer. In a taped interview with NBC's Matt Lauer, Douglas said he felt relieved after a "wild, six-month ride." Excerpts of the interview were released Monday ahead of its airing Tuesday on "Today."

Douglas says the odds are that he has beaten the disease.

He said that he had lost 32 pounds, but was now working out and had put 12 pounds back on. He said he'll continue to go in for monthly checkups.

The 66-year-old actor is set to begin shooting Steven Soderbergh's "Liberace" in May or June, with Douglas playing the title part. He's also nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance in "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps."

Re: Michael Douglas reveals throat cancer at stage 4

sorry to burst bubbles, but removing the tumor does not remove metastatic cancer.

Re: Michael Douglas reveals throat cancer at stage 4

I'm hopeful he encounters a full recovery. I've always considered him a great actor. He also seems like a very compassionate, thoughtful man when it comes to his family.

Re: Michael Douglas reveals throat cancer at stage 4

Michael Douglas revealed the cause of his throat cancer was not smoking and drinking - as he previously believed but instead by performing oral sex.

The 68-year-old actor was incredibly honest in an interview with The Guardian, explaining that he learned his cancer was caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV).

Re: Michael Douglas reveals throat cancer at stage 4

I can't believe the dude is 68. As for it being caused by HPV? Wonder if he got it from CZJ, I know I'd be chomping at that.

Tongue-tickling CZJ's tuna in 1999? DEFINITELY worth stage 4 throat cancer.

2013? Ahh no. Maybe a pharyngitis...

Don't think he got it from CZJ, but he was a motherfucking bushman up until he hooked up with her, so he did get around.

Well if you are going to get throat cancer from something, it might as well be that.

Yes. There's a chance my friend who survived his throat cancer a few years ago got his from making the rounds with a few fellas back in the day. He's Gay.

And didn't Michael go down on Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct? LOL
