Michael Douglas Wishes He Spent More Time With Son Cameron

Actor Michael Douglas, who recently announced he was battling throat cancer, has also come clean about his regrets with his son Cameron who’s had a public battle of drugs and is currently in prison.

In an interview with Men’s Journal, Michael says he was too focused on his acting career when Cameron was born, “When I had Cameron, I was early in my career and as opposed to most jobs, making movies takes you all around the world, so you were absentee in that sense.” The actor’s priorities have now shifted and he says that his “marriage and family certainly come before my career.”

Michael hopes Cameron can get something “accomplished” during his 5-year stint in prison. He has two children, Dylan, 10, and Carys, 7 with wife Catherine Zeta-Jones.

The big winner however you look is Catherine. She really comes out the winner here in all fronts. Poor Michael, poor exwife Diana, and poor soon Cameron. Michael cannot take his money… Read more »
