Stone: Michael's health precarious
Oliver Stone has said he is worried about the health of actor Michael Douglas, who is battling throat cancer.
Michael, who reprised his role as stock trader Gordon Gekko in Stone's latest film Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, is in a "precarious" state of health, the director told reporters in Berlin.
Douglas was meant to accompany him on a promotional tour in Europe, but Stone said the actor remained in the US for further cancer treatments.
Michael, who turned 66 last month, said in August he is battling throat cancer, but he attended the film's premiere in New York three weeks ago.
New York-based publicist Allen Burry said the Hollywood star finished his treatments last week.
"Doctors were very pleased and have scheduled no more treatments," he said.
Burry said the actor, married to Catherine Zeta Jones, has a six-eight week period of recuperation, "which all cancer patients go through".
Stone's newest film is a sequel to 1987's Wall Street, for which Michael won an Academy Award.
