Michael Douglas’ cancer treatment is going very well, according to his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones.
The 41-year-old actress revealed her 66-year-old actor husband – who is currently undergoing eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy after being diagnosed with a tumour in his throat – is “holding up very, very well” despite the severity of the illness.
Speaking at the Welcome To Wales concert held at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium to greet the Ryder Cup teams ahead of the golf contest, she said: “Everyone couldn’t be happier with his progress. He’s holding up with great strength and dignity.”
Catherine – who is from Wales, the country where the Ryder Cup is being held – was due to be accompanied by Michael for the event, but he had to stay in the US with their two children, Dylan, 10, and Carys, seven, to continue his treatment.
Referring to her golf fanatic spouse, a visibly upset Catherine said: “Michael will be glued to anything that has a golf ball and a club, especially the Ryder Cup. Usually I would be watching it with him. He would be representing the American team and I would be wholeheartedly representing the European team, but not this year, maybe next time.”
The ‘Chicago’ actress was joined at the welcoming ceremony by fellow Welsh stars, opera singer Katherine Jenkins and music legend Dame Shirley Bassey, who both performed for the golfing teams and guests which included Prince Charles.
The tournament – which takes place every two years – is being staged at the Celtic Manor Resort, in Newport, from October 1-3.
