Michael Douglas' heart was broken when he was diagnosed with cancer in the same year as his son was given a jail sentence.
The 71-year-old actor discovered he had stage four throat cancer in the summer of 2010, just months after his son Cameron, 30, was sentenced to five years in prison for heroin possession.
It made the year very difficult to cope with, Michael told Megyn Kelly in an interview on Tuesday (17May16).
"That was a one-two shot, that was a pretty dark moment," he said. "My oldest son Cameron has struggled with addiction for most of his life, he was a serious heroin addict, that brought him into federal prison.

Michael Douglas is urging America's presidential hopefuls to stop bickering about each other and address the nuclear issue after tackling the problem in a hard-hitting new film.
The actor is working on a documentary about a California family who grew up near a Boeing plant at the centre of a nuclear accident in the 1950s.

Kirk Douglas' former estate, which includes a pool shaped as the letter K, is up for sale for $3.4 million (£2.1 million).
The five-bedroom house in Palm Springs, California, was designed in 1954 and comes complete with Hollywood memorabilia, according to the listing agent Jim Schwietz.
The 99-year-old Spartacus star bought the property in the late 1950s, and the Douglas family - including son Michael Douglas - used the home as a family retreat until 1999, when it was sold to its current owners.
The 4,000-square-foot property is steeped in Old Hollywood lore, according to Schwietz. One of the estate's five bedrooms is nicknamed the Kate and Spencer room because Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy allegedly carried on an affair from there, while Frank Sinatra was also said to have cooked meals in the kitchen.
