Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones smoking after he beat throat cancer

In January Michael Douglas proclaimed he was confident he’d beaten throat cancer.

But as these photos show, it seems the 66-year-old is struggling to keep his nicotine addiction under control.

The Hollywood actor is seen here smoking what appeared to be a hand-rolled cigarette while aboard a yacht on a recent holiday in the Italian Riviera.

His wife Catherine Zeta-Jones, who supported her husband through his stage IV cancer battle last year, was also clocked with a cigarette in hand during the break.

To many, the image of the couple smoking just seven months after Douglas returned to health may come as a something of a shock.

However, statistcs show it is not uncommon for people who develop cancer to continue smoking after diagnosis.

A recent U.S. study by Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center found that up to 18 per cent of lung cancer patients continue to smoke after discovering they have the illness.

    Are all actresses taught to walk, stand and run like they got something stuck in their rear-ends? It never ceases to amaze me, the way almost all the women in smutville seem to have this awkward neo-bull-legged-ness.
    Just wondering? Because the chick in the big hit vampire movies runs like she’s bull legged, and chicky in “taken” has serious bull legged issues, and that list goes on? So, just wondering, if this is something they learn, maybe when their still innocently learning the pros on broadway or something?
