Catherine Zeta-Jones wasn't the only one to be overcome by the news Michael Douglas' tumour has vanished.
His father Kirk has revealed he wept tears of joy when he heard of his son's recovery.
"I immediately felt years younger. Not a day over 85," joked the actor, who is actually 94.
The Hollywood veteran told US publication People: "I believe God answers all prayers. Sometimes his answer is no, but not this time!"
Michael told the magazine Kirk had travelled to New York three times to check on him.
"He was quite extraordinary," he noted.
