Hollywood veteran MICHAEL DOUGLAS has hit back at long-standing reports of his sex addiction - saying they're untrue and hurtful.
The husband of CATHERINE ZETA JONES was outed by the media as a self-confessed sex addict after the break-up of his marriage to first wife DIANDRA LUKER.
The TRAFFIC (2000) star says, "That was a clever bit by someone in the British tabloids." He adds, "I always love it when they say 'the self-confessed sex addict.' I have a son and it was embarrassing for a while. And hurtful." (ES/O/KW)
