Michael Douglas almost quit acting before his career took off, because appearing on camera made him vomit. The son of Spartacus legend Kirk Douglas blames some bad advice for his condition. He tells Total Film magazine, "When I started out I hated acting. I had a bucket off camera because I got so sick with nerves. "When I used to look at the camera, it used to look to me like an X-ray machine because somebody told me that the camera can tell when you're lying. And then one day I realised that was bulls**t, that acting was about looking people in the eye and lying your brains out. "After that I was fine and I just made sure to pick good roles, roles that suited my tastes and my needs."
