Who is Michael Douglas Dating?
As of 2021, Michael Douglas is married to Welsh actress Catherine Zeta-Jones. They both live together in their apartment in New York. Douglas and Catherine married back in 2000 after dating for over a year. They both first met in Deauville, France, and are parents to two children. Their son Dylan Micahel was born the same year they married, and daughter Carys Zeta was born three years later. Like any other couple, Michael and Zeta also had hard times in their marriage, but instead of taking any legal action, they rather evaluated and worked on their marriage. Besides all this, one thing that is really engrossing about the couple is that other than being life partners, Micahel (76) and Zeta-Jones(51) is also Birthday Buddies.
Yes, they both were born on the same day, 25th September, though 25 years apart. Michael had a really intriguing dating life. Before Zeta-Jones, Micahel dated actress Brenda Vaccaro in 1971, they both were happy in the relationship, but unfortunately, after six long years together, they eventually broke up. Soon after that, in 1997, Douglas married Diandra Luker, who was just 19 years old and 13 years younger than him. With Diandra, Michael has a son who is named Cameron. But the marriage could not last longer than 18 years, and in 1995, Diandra filed for divorce. Since then, Michael’s heart belongs to Zeta-Jones.
The throat cancer
In 2010 Michael Douglas was diagnosed with throat cancer of stage IV. However, later contradicting his own statement in 2003, he revealed that it was actually tongue cancer. He also revealed the reason behind such false statements in the first place. Douglas said that he hid the diagnosis at the urging of his doctor to protect his career. There were speculations that he might lose a part f his tongue as well as jaw if he has to undergo surgery. Consequently, that could have been the end of his career as well. But apparently, it turned out that he didn’t require the potentially disfiguring surgery and instead was treated with an aggressive form of radiation and chemotherapy.
Douglas attributed his cancer to stress, his previous alcohol abuse, and years of heavy smoking, and not solely but partially HPV. Celebrities have this habit of misidentifying the type of cancer they have. Douglas isn’t the first to have done so. Valerie Harper also announced that she was suffering from terminal brain cancer, but it actually was lung cancer that had spread to the lining of her brain. Well, now, after so many years of treatment and regular check-ups, Douglas is apparently healthy and clear of cancer. Also, in one of his interviews, Michael said that there is a 95% chance that it is not coming back. Moreover, he is back in the industry. He will be resuming his role as Sandy Kominsky in the third season of the Netflix comedy The Kominsky Method.
