Michael Douglas Admits He Lied About His Cancer Published: October 13, 2013

Michael Douglas is coming clean.

In an interview with Samuel L. Jackson on the U.K. talk show "This Morning," the 69-year-old admitted that the type of cancer he battled in 2010 was not stage four throat cancer -- he was actually diagnosed with tongue cancer.

"This was right before I had to go on a big tour for 'Wall Street,' so we kind of said, 'There’s no way we can cancel the tour and say we don’t feel well,'" he explained. "So you know, I said, 'You've just got to come out and just tell them I've got cancer and that’s that.'"
