Michael Douglas has said that his tumor is gone and he's most likely beaten throat cancer, but was there ever a point he considered not going through with his taxing treatment? The 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps' star gets candid with ET's Mary Hart.
"I found out last Thursday the tumor's gone. Gotta check in every month… so it'll probably be two or three more months until I'm really clicking my heels," Michael says, adding: "It's been a pretty wild six-month ride."
Michael has said he's been eating "like a pig" now that his appetite is back, and Mary wonders how much weight he lost during his cancer treatment.
"I was 170 [pounds], I went down to 136, so it was about 34, 35 pounds," he says.
Michael's weight loss and gaunt appearance fueled tabloid headlines that predicted the worst. Mary wonders if he ever walked by any of those newsstands that were proclaiming the end of his life.
"I didn't. Unfortunately one time my 10-year-old son was in the drug store and happened to be thumbing through and saw a story in an article about my changing the will and my life expectancy," Michael says.
"The day you found out you had cancer, did you and Catherine have to sit down and lay out how you were going to deal with it?" Mary asks.
"I had an inkling, and I shared that with Catherine," he says.
And, was there ever a point he considered not going through with his cancer treatment?
"Oh no. I mean, were there days where like, you were shaking your head?… But no, because you knew there was no reason to begin it unless you're gonna complete it."
