‘Kids think my cancer treatment is cool’

London: Michael Douglas has revealed that his kids watched him being treated for cancer and thought it was cool.

The 65-year-old, who has a tumour in his throat, invited his son Dylan, 10, and daughter Carys, seven, to see him undergoing radiotherapy.

The Oscar-winning actor, who stars in the new film Wall Street, said they were not upset by the experience in a New York hospital.

"They actually thought it was cool, like a video game or Star Wars. They were very impressed when the doctors let them press the buttons. They weren’t frightened. And fear is one of our biggest enemies. We told the kids a couple days after I was tested and it was confirmed," the Telegraph quoted him as telling Parade magazine.
