Michael Douglas is in a “precarious” state of health and is “suffering.”
That’s what director Oliver Stone told reporters in Berlin on Tuesday, RadarOnline.com learned.
Douglas, 66, has been bravely battling throat cancer but Stone’s remarks gave a little more insight into how difficult that battle is.
The director said that the legendary actor was supposed to join him in Europe to promote the movie Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.
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.
His treatment was scheduled to last eight weeks, according to Access Hollywood, which quoted his publicist Alan Burry saying the actor expects to make a full recovery.
Douglas previously told David Letterman that he has an 80 percent chance of survival.
