September 1, 2010 by Post Team
The actor, in town to promote “Wall Street 2″, appeared happy, though a little thin after just completing a week of radiation and chemotherapy. Letterman joked, and unconvincing, he managed to keep cheerful interview.
Douglas said he learned he had cancer three weeks ago “just when I heard he was going to be in your show.”
“It is not possible to have a medical connection,” Letterman joked.
“It’s a stage IV, which is intense, so I have to go to that,” Douglas said Letterman.
“Now, when you said that the stage IV, I heard someone shout,” Letterman said. “Now is step 4 where you want to be or where they want to be?”
“Um, no,” said Douglas. “No, I like being down on stage.”
The 65-year-old, said his particular form of cancer is caused by “alcohol and drinking.”
“But no – the big thing is always concerned about the spread,” continued Douglas. “So I’m head and neck. I am above the neck, so nothing has gone down, and expectations are good.”
Douglas said his chances of recovery are 80 percent and with certain hospitals and all, it does improve. ”
“Oh, boy, I feel like I want to do something for you,” Letterman said in the end of the interview. “Anything I can do for you?”
“Ahh, give me a hug,” said Douglas.
They did, and received a standing ovation.
