Michael Douglas Makes First Red-Carpet Appearance Since Cancer Diagnosis
"I am so happy to be out," he says of attending Sunday's Golden Globes.
Michael Douglas made his first appearance on the red carpet at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards since announcing last year that he had cancer.
Accompanied by wife Catherine Zeta-Jones (in Monique Lhuillier), he spoke to E!'s Ryan Seacrest, saying he felt "great."
"Last week I got the tumors gone," said the actor, who announced last year that doctors had found a tumor at the base of his tongue. "This type of cancer usually doesn't come back. I am so happy to be out. This is our first time out in months and months. To be able to be cancer free is pretty special."
Walking the red carpet now, he said he's able to "smell the roses" more.
"It's great to see a lot of people," said Douglas, up for best supporting actor for his role in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.
Earlier this month, Douglas told Today's Matt Lauer that even though the tumor is gone, he still dealing with some of the long-term side effects of the disease.
Douglas was honored Thursday at the Palm Springs International Film Festival.
