The 65 year old Oscar winner tells People Magazine that his exhausting radiation and chemotherapy treatment “really knocks you out.”

Douglas revealed to People Magazine that he had received his diagnoses in early August, after continuous ear and throat pain.

His wife, actress Catherine Zeta Jones, tells People how difficult it is seeing Douglas fatigued, with less energy after his treatment, but believes, “if there’s anything Michael has, it’s strength.”

Zeta Jones told People Magazine that she and Douglas had to sit their children, 10 year old Dylan, and 7 year old Carys, to break the news of his illness.

The diagnoses follows “a pretty intense year” after Douglas’ son was given a five year prison sentence on drug charges.

Be sure to catch Douglas in his latest film, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, out on September 24th.

    A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at FabulousBuzz.com. Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
