Stanley Tucci Revealed He Battled Cancer Three Years Ago


Stanley Tucci revealed he secretly battled cancer three years ago.

In a new interview with Vera Magazine, he says he was diagnosed with a tumor at the base of his tongue.

“It was too big to operate, so they had to do high-dose radiation and chemo,” he said. “I’d vowed I’d never do anything like that, because my first wife died of cancer, and to watch her go through those treatments for years was horrible.”

Stanley said he had a feeding tube for six months and could barely make it to his twin kids’ high school graduation.  The positive news is that he says the cancer is unlikely to return.

And he says, “[Cancer] makes you more afraid and less afraid at the same time. I feel much older than I did before I was sick.  But you still want to get ahead and get things done.”
