Michael Douglas was too angry to die from cancer

Sep 5 2013, 9:24am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Michael Douglas was "too p***ed off" to die from cancer.

The 'Behind the Candelabra' actor was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2010 and because it wasn't spotted until its later stages he had to undergo an intense course of treatment, but he claims he was too upset with his doctors to let himself die.

Michael - who was given the all-clear in 2011 - told GQ magazine: "I wasn't scared of dying, probably because I was too p****d off with at all the physicians."

Needless to say, Michael's doctor was fired for missing the cancer for so long.

He added: "He'd missed it for nine god damn months! I fired him. And I didn't mince my words, shall we say."

The 68-year-old star's cancer had only been discovered after he went to see specialists in Canada, and he says he was so shocked to find out how bad his condition was he nearly fell out of the chair.

Michael - who is currently separated from his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones - explained: "Some moments really stick in your mind and this is one of those moments. One of the specialists took a simple wooden spatula, he pushed my tongue down. I will never forget the look on his face ... Two days later he rung me up and said I had cancer. Now, at that moment, I didn't know how bad it was. Or how advanced. Back in New York I went to see this particular surgeon at Sloan-Kettering [cancer centre] and he told me I was stage four. I nearly fell off the chair. There aint no stage five, man! It was about the size of a walnut."

Paul Rudd is going on a superhero's journey in the new Marvel Studios movie Ant-Man, although these days he's looking decidedly unheroic.Directed by Peyton Reed, Ant-Man (in theaters July 17, 2015) began production in San Francisco Monday, but by the looks of the first image from the movie, with Rudd's hoodie-clad, unshaven Scott Lang skulking around the Golden Gate Bridge next to a decrepit van, he has a ways to go before he's on the level of the Avengers.In Ant-Man, Lang i ...
