Going Down Caused My Throat Cancer, But It Also Cured It... Michael Douglas

Michael Douglas has opened up about his past diagnosis, revealing that oral sex, not smoking or drinking, caused his type of throat cancer.

In a candid new interview with U.K.'s The Guardian, Douglas admits that his illness was caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV).

"Without wanting to get too specific, this particular cancer is caused by HPV, which actually comes about from cunnilingus," the "Behind the Candelabra" star, 68, explains.

Douglas, who fought a six-month battle with the disease from August 2010 until January 2011, also confesses that he thought that his battle with cancer would be a fatal one. He says at first he assumed the stress from his son Cameron's legal troubles played a big factor in his sickness.

"I did worry if the stress caused by my son's incarceration didn't help trigger it. But yeah, it's a sexually transmitted disease that causes cancer," Douglas, who is married to Catherine Zeta-Jones, notes. "And if you have it, cunnilingus is also the best cure for it."

The actor has been cancer-free for more than two years and says he has check-ups every six months. "And with this kind of cancer, 95% of the time it doesn't come back," he adds. Still, Douglas will never forget what it felt like to hear that word.

"I will always remember the look on his face," Douglas previously said of his doctor, who revealed that he had stage four throat cancer. "He said: 'We need a biopsy.' There was a walnut-size tumor at the base of my tongue that no other doctor had seen."

According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, one tract of HPV -- known as HPV16 -- is known to be linked to oral cancer, manifesting itself in the back regions of the throat and mouth. Douglas admits he suffered through toothaches and other oral infections for nine months before discovering his diagnosis.

Christmas: Suri Cruise To Get Alleged $24,000 Playhouse, Complete With Electricity and Running Water and $9,000 Toy Mercedes

Suri Cruise’s tantrums over ice cream and puppies have been well-documented by the paparazzi, but it seems like the 6-year-old daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes is still on Santa’s nice list.

Katie Holmes reportedly bought a $24,000 playhouse for her daughter this year that comes complete with running water and electricity, according to the Daily Mail.

 The Grand Victorian Playhouse, created by Sweet Retreat Kids, can be customized with options including recessed lighting, a sunroom, an eat-in-kitchen and a media room. Intercoms can connect the playhouse to the main house.

This is a SERIOUS playhouse that can be configured to have a garage, a picket fence and even its own landscaping.

According to The Sun, Suri will have something to park in that garage – her mom is buying her a $9,750 kids’ version of a Mercedes, along with an iPad mini and a Chloe fur coat.

It’s unclear where exactly the playhouse will be installed, but we’re guessing at dad’s house. Since her split with Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes has been living in a high-end apartment in Chelsea where there’s no backyard to be found.

Rush Hour 4? Chris Tucker Expresses Optimism That It's Going To Happen

The Rush Hour 4 guessing game marches on.

Even though Jackie Chan has announced that he's retiring from action movies, his Rush Hour costar Chris Tucker is pretty confident that they'll make a fourth installment of their hit comedy franchise.

"It's going to be a lot of fun," Tucker told me the other night at the Silver Linings Playbook screening in L.A. "I hope it happens. We need to do one more."

The first Rush Hour hit theaters in 1998 followed by a second in 2001 and the last one in 2007. Brett Ratner directed all three.

"I just want us to be free and do our thing," Tucker said. "I love working with Jackie, being around Jackie. Stuff just happens when we're together."

Chan said in May that after 100 films, Chinese Zodiac would be his last because he was getting too old for the action stunts and wasn't happy how violent movies have become.

Pale and Disheveled Looking Lindsay Lohan Steps Out In Los Angeles

Lindsay Lohan looks spaced out and pale, sparking renewed fears for the troubled star’s health.

The actress also appeared bloated, sporting a double-chin as she arrived at Los Angeles airport to catch a flight.

Her dazed eyes were particularly evident when she attempted to hide her peepers as she turned up at the terminal.

A female aide was at her side to help her on her travels, and the contrast between the two made Lindsay’s state all the more obvious.

She donned a long leather jacket for her trip and wore her dyed red hair in a wonky parting.

Her shockingly dishevelled appearance comes after critics blasted her return to acting.

Lindsay’s movie biopic Liz & Dick – in which she plays late screen legend Elizabeth Taylor – has been compared to a school play.

Hollywood Reporter reviewer Tim Goodman said her performance is “half train wreck, half SNL skit”.

He wrote: "Lohan as Taylor was a bad idea in the dramatic sense, but it’s pure genius both for marketing and for belly laughs and drinking games.
"Lohan is woeful as Taylor from start to finish. But, whatever you do, don’t miss Liz & Dick. It’s an instant classic of unintentional hilarity. Drinking games were made for movies like this."

The made-for-TV movie is due to premiere on Lifetime this Sunday.

Beyonce's GQ Cover in High Res

Beyoncé scores a touchdown on the cover of GQ‘s February 2013 issue. In advance of next month’s Super Bowl, the Halftime performer shows off her post-baby body as the magazine’s Sexiest Woman of the 21st Century. The hottest chick in the game poses in only her underwear and a cropped T-shirt jersey as her boobs peek out from under her top.

Bey is gearing up for a big year. In addition to her performance at next month’s Super Bowl, she will star in a series of campaigns for Pepsi as part of her $50 million deal. And of course, there’s a new album on the way. The-Dream revealed that new material will drop ahead of the Super Bowl on February 3.

While we wait for the rest of the images (coming January 15), check out your first look at Blue Ivy’s smoking-hot mama.

Beyonce Signs US$50 Million Deal To Become Pepsi Brand Ambassador

Who runs the world? Beyoncé. The pop icon has been named brand ambassador for Pepsi in a multi-year deal estimated at $50 million.

According to The New York Times, the hybrid project will include commercials as well as a multimillion-dollar fund to support the singer’s creative endeavors.

“Pepsi embraces creativity and understands that artists evolve,” Beyoncé said in a statement. “As a businesswoman, this allows me to work with a lifestyle brand with no compromise and without sacrificing my creativity.”

The launch will coincide with the release of her next album, which is expected in 2013. Following her performance at the Pepsi-sponsored Super Bowl halftime show on February 3, the “Single Ladies” singer will appear in a global TV commercial for Pepsi (“Live for Now”), her fifth for the soft drink maker since 2002.

Her image will also adorn life-size standees in stores and a limited-edition line of soda cans, which will launch first in Europe in March.

The $50 million will be used for media placements and promotions worldwide, with the remainder split equally between Beyoncé’s fee and a “creative content development fund.” Beyoncé will also collaborate on the design of all materials related to the partnership.

Bill Clinton Says Daughter Chelsea and Her Husband, Marc Mezvinsky Are Working On Getting Pregnant

Bill Clinton says his daughter Chelsea and son-in-law Marc Mezvinsky are trying for a baby, according to our spies. Sources attending the All Ireland Scholarship Awards at the University of Limerick — where Bill was a special guest Saturday — overheard Bubba telling a guest when asked if he and Hillary want to be grandparents that Chelsea and Mezvinsky “tell us they’re working on it.”

When the spy asked if Hillary would run for president, he laughed, saying, “You’ll have to ask her.” The ex-prez reportedly picked up $250,000 for speaking at the event, where 125 students received scholarships and guests included Irish Finance Minister Michael Noonan, businessman JP McManus, rugby icons Keith Wood and Paul O’Connell and Michael Smurfit, owner of the tony K Club.

 Bubba arrived in Ireland on Friday and stayed at the luxe Adare Manor Hotel and Golf Resort, where guests have included Hugh Grant and John Travolta. Spies say he hit the links with pals Friday before his speech in front of 600 invite-only guests.
