About Michael lying is no big deal. Hollywood is made up of lies anyways. He did not do anything wrong and I would consider that a white lie. Chances are he probably would have wanted to stay private about having cancer period and was forced to disclose information unwillingly. I wish Michael the best. I have watched Fatal Attraction like ten times and never get tired. Michael is a great actor who has brought much grace to our lives trough his acting. I wish him the best and is nice to see him going strong. I wish him the best for many more years to come. God bless you Michael!

Why is Michael Douglas still lying about his cancer? If it’s stage IV, what other organs are involved. But, the real shame here is the missed opportunity to educate people to get vaccinated against HPV!!!! Please tell this story and you could save many lives!!!! People know about the vaccine for girls, but it’s just as important for boys.

What on earth are you talking about? HPV had nothing to do with this. And you don’t need to know details about his cancer. It’s his information–it’s not about you.

Michael Douglas is a creep. I am not surprised he lied about it. He isn’t even a good actor or good looking. He is just creepy. I don’t know why that beautiful woman even took up with him. I guess money helps.

Really bellabella?! It is only your opinion that he isn’t a good actor or good looking! He has to be somewhat talented at acting after all he’s won the most prestigious awards on earth! As for good looking — I’d like to see what you look like at his age & after having been bolted down on a hospital bed & had red hot radiation seared into your flesh & bones! That’s right with Oral Cancer they put a cap over your head & face that bolts down onto the bed so you can’t move – so the radiation beam targets the cancer — if you move the beam may just burn your eyes balls out or sear through your brain — or literally burn & sever your spinal cord! As for his beautiful wife — trust me she may be pretty but living with her & her bipolar was no picnic for him I’m sure especially while battling head & neck cancer — he had to love her to stay with her so long with that illness of hers. As for $$$ – she had plenty of her own before she married him! They married for love – yeah that’s right some rich & famous people actually fall in love! It’s not always about money!

It sounds like he lied to save himself from having to go into the gruesome details of what tongue cancer surgery might be like, something he probably would have rather not have to keep thinking about as he waited to see if surgery was be necessary. Since his health is really not the media’s or general public’s business, I really have no problem with him lying. The only people who have a right to be upset are those with a financial stake in his future ability to perform as an actor since their investment is more at risk with tongue cancer than throat cancer. However, for all we know, he could have told those people the truth.

You are right it is no one’s business if he had cancer, so why make it the world’s business anyway?
He did not have to say or explain anything, and should he had found out he would be having face disfiguring cancer surgery, which he did not, then he could have said something, which should have been the truth. This is a strange and bizarre lie. If you do not want to tell the truth, don’t say anything.

Why? Why would someone lie about the type of cancer they have. It’s downright disgusting and I’ll tell you what. I wouldn’t believe another word that came out his mouth, throat or whatever.

A totally unnecessary lie. He also said he could have got it through oral sex, not only did he lie about it, he embellished the cause. It is going to be hard to believe anything that comes out of that mouth again.

He had just been told by his Oncologist (cancer doc) that he had ADVANCED Oral Cancer! You have no idea how earth shattering it is to be told you have stage IV cancer & by the way — “we may have to perform a bi-lateral dissection (aka cut off half your face).” He was probably in a fog from the diagnosis – thinking about dying, his young children, his wife who has issues of his own, his family – about being laid out in a coffin! Like every average patient – he listened to his DOCTOR! Aren’t we told the doctor is always RIGHT! Give this man a break – 2 yrs after radiation that causes 3rd degree burns to the inside of the mouth, & leaves life long radiation-burn-injury & horrific side effects, chemo that destroys all blood cells etc, ect. – you can bet he’s still struggling to gain back his strength & still reeling from the hell he’s been through!

Did you actually read the article.

No, Douglas’s doctor told him to lie to the press and he acquiesced. Mr. Douglas told the press that he had throat cancer, not his doctor.

Lisa, seriously?

Oh Lisa, really? Heard of Dr. Conrad Murray? Do you think that he believed that MJ needed all those meds. Each time he ordered more drugs for MJ, he had to communicate that he had a patient that needed the drugs. Sheltered much?

In Hollywood? I believe Drs would lie, they would write prescriptions, they would cheat. Its Hollywood, the money is good.
