Michael Douglas has been lying about his cancer. When he first revealed he had cancer in 2010 he said he had throat cancer, but the actor now confesses that it was actually tongue cancer. “This was right before I had to go on a big tour for ‘Wall Street 4,’ so we kind of said, ‘There’s no way we can cancel the tour and say we don’t feel well.’ So you know, I said, ‘You’ve just got to come out and just tell them I’ve got cancer and that’s that.'”

“The surgeon said, ‘Let’s just say it’s throat cancer,'” explaining that his doctor told him if they had to do surgery for tongue cancer “it’s not going to be pretty” and the surgery could leave him disfigured and he could lose part of his jaw and tongue. He decided to keep the secret.
