Catherine Zeta-Jones said she’s "furious" over how long it took for doctors to detect the stage-four cancer that has developed in her husband Michael Douglas' throat. 

"It makes me furious they didn't detect it earlier ... he sought every option and nothing was found," Zeta-Jones tells People in its brand new issue.   

"I know maybe I should be stronger, but emotionally I just don't want to see that ... the hardest part is seeing his fatigue, because Michael is never tired."

Douglas, in an emotional appearance on David Letterman this week, said he just wrapped up the first in eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy to eliminate the deadly growth.

The 65-year-old Oscar-winner said his throat had been bothering him earlier this summer, but doctors could not find the cancer at the time. He said upon returning from a European vacation this summer, doctors located it.

"The expectations of recovery are good," Douglas told Letterman, noting he has about an 80 percent chance of recovery.
