Douglas has been seen taking his daughter to school and did attend his movie’s premiere in New York several weeks ago.

Despite Stone’s remarks, Michael’s wife Catherina Zeta-Jones recently said that her husband is doing “very well” and finishing his treatment. His publicist said Douglas will need a six-week recovery period after finishing his treatment.
