PHOTO – Michael Douglas dashing at 77: cancer is just a distant memory

Invited to the 21st Monte Cristo Award gala this Monday, April 11, 2022 in New York, Michael Douglas appeared younger than ever. Despite her 77 years, cancer seems to be a distant memory.

On the occasion of the Monte Cristo Awards, Michael Douglas made a very remarkable exit. More dashing than ever, the 77-year-old American actor was present at Gotham Hall in New York. Very smiling and relaxed, the one who produced the film Flight over a cuckoo’s nest even took the stage to address the audience. Alumnus and trophy winner Michael Douglas presented founder George C. White with the 21st Monte Cristo Award. All in sobriety, the actor of Gordon Gekko in Wall Street showed up with his hair slicked back and dressed in a navy blue suit with a white shirt. Elegant as possible, the nightmare lived by Michael Douglas a few years ago seems to be ancient history.

Remember, in 2010, the actor revealed live on David Letterman’s Late Show that he was the victim of a throat cancer. So at stage four, the most advanced of the disease, his state of health was worrying. Fortunately, the actor has always remained optimistic about the disease. “It’s just going to keep me from doing a lot of the promo for my new movie Wall Street 2”, he played down on the set of David Letterman. Following the treatment, “very intensive”suffered by the actor, the tumor was gone. “Knowing that the tumor is gone, and based on what I know about this type of cancer, it is likely that I have overcome” announced Michael Douglas to NBC in 2011. Since then, the American producer has regained the pounds lost due to chemotherapy and seems in great shape.

Michael Douglas, still as dynamic

Earlier, on February 27, 2022, we had already seen Michael Douglas during the ceremony of SAG Awards in Los Angeles. Very fit, the actor had expressed his support for Ukraine, a few days after the Russian invasion, by wearing a yellow and blue pocket square. At that time, he was hoping to win an award for his performance as Andy Kominsky in The Kominsky Method. Despite his prowess, it was Jason Sudeikis, for the role of Ted Lasso in Ted Lassowho won the prize.
