Michael Douglas says he has won his battle with cancer, adding that he’s glad he brought his two children, Carys, 7, and Dylan, 10, along for his treatments.
He said, “I took them down to a couple of radiation treatments. So they came into the room and they saw all the Star Wars treatment going around. And they saw them put the mask on your face because they have to kind of bolt you down, like Hannibal Lecter.
“At that age it was good for them. I mean, they thought it was cool, you know, all this space age stuff. So it made up for all those days when dad was lying on the couch and couldn’t get up.”
To celebrate the 66-year-old actor’s clean bill of health, he and wife Catherine
Zeta-Jones took the kids to their favorite restaurant last week.
“We dined on oysters and toasted with Shirley Temples,” Douglas said.
Zeta-Jones added, “He also indulged in a glass of wine, his first since his diagnosis in August.”
