"Matt and I didn't rehearse the love scenes. We said, 'Well – we've read the script, haven't we?' "

It was a different role for the imprisoned Cameron Douglas: the prosecution's star witness in a drug-conspiracy trail of an accused dealer.
The scene was Manhattan Federal Court on Tuesday, as the troubled son of Michael Douglas and grandson of Kirk Douglas identified defendant David Escalera as the dealer who in clandestine meetings at gas stations, restaurants supplied Cameron, 32, with cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin, reports New York's Daily News.
Scruffy- looking in court, where he testified for four hours, Cameron, who is currently serving a five-year sentence for dealing methamphetamine, sported blue prison-issued pants and matching smock over a black T-shirt. He mumbled, shook on the stand and told stories of his own drug-dealing past.

After learning that his son Michael Douglas is cancer-free, Kirk Douglas acknowledged the power of the Almighty.
"I believe God answers all prayers," the 94-year-old screen icon tells PEOPLE. "Sometimes his answer is no, but not this time!"
Douglas says he cried tears of joy when Michael told him the news that the radiation and chemo got rid of the tumor in his throat. Describing his relief, the patriarch adds wryly, "I immediately felt years younger. Not a day over 85."
The Hollywood legend – who lost his 46-year-old son Eric Douglas in 2004 to an accidental drug overdose – also made a point of praising his son and daughter-in-law Catherine Zeta-Jones.
