Michael Douglas recently opened up about his life to New York Magazine, revealing the struggles he has endured over the past couple of years.
His son, Cameron, was incarcerated for drug trafficking, including sending meth in the mail. He was also caught with drugs in prison, resulting in his sentence being doubled to nine and a half years.
"I have gone from being a very disappointed but loving father who felt his son got what was due him to realizing that Lady Justice's blindfold is really slipping. I'm not defending Cameron as a drug dealer or drug addict, but I believe, because of his last name, he's been made an example…when he had the 'slip,' I said, 'You were two weeks away from starting your rehab program!' But years of shooting up heroin screws up your system," he said.
He also discussed dealing with cancer. He was diagnosed with stage 4 throat cancer and had to spend most of his time on the couch.
"I watched a lot of sports, anything where I didn't know the ending…I did miss working, but I was too weak to miss much of anything. I was stage four, and there is no stage five," he said.
On a lighter note, he talked about kissing Matt Damon, which he said was not really that difficult.
"The hardest thing is that everybody is a judge. I don't know the last time you murdered somebody or blew anyone's brains out, but everyone has had sex and probably this morning, which means everyone has an opinion on how it should be done," he said.
