Actor Michael Douglas was diagnosed with cancer in 2010. But what he never told was that he actually lied about the type of cancer he had. Michael claimed he had throat cancer, while he was actually suffering from tongue cancer.
Michael says the lie started when he was going on a big tour for movie Wall Street, and his doctor wanted him to tell people he was sick.
“The surgeon said let’s just say it’s throat cancer”, he explained. “I said ‘Why’s that?’ and he said ‘Well, if you really want to know why, if we do have to surgery it’s not going to be pretty. You’ll lose part of your jaw and your tongue and all that stuff”, so Michael agreed on lying. Today Michael is okay again
