Michael Douglas admits that he lied about his Cancer
Michael Douglas has admitted in a new interview with Samuel L. Jackson that he in fact lied about the type of cancer that he was diagnosed with.
“This was right before I had to go on a big tour for [Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps], so we kind of said there’s no way we can cancel the tour and say we don’t feel well. … You’ve got to tell them,” the Emmy-winning actor told Jackson on the daytime show. “I said, ‘You’ve just got to come out and just tell them I’ve got cancer and that’s that.’”
Douglas continued But the surgeon said, ‘Let’s just say it’s throat cancer.’ I said ‘OK, you don’t want to say it’s tongue cancer?’ I said ‘Why’s that?’ and he said, ‘Well, if you really want to know why, if we do have to have surgery it’s not going to be pretty. You’ll lose part of you jaw and your tongue and all of that stuff.’ So I said, ‘OK sure.’”
Do you think it’s a big deal that Michael lied about the type of cancer he had been diagnosed with.
