While Michael Douglas battles throat cancer, his friend and co-star Danny DeVito accepted an award for the 'Wall Street' Oscar winner, The Daily Mail reports.
A the Zurich Film Festival in Sweden, DeVito -- who starred in 'Romancing the Stone' and 'The Jewel of the Nile' with Douglas -- accepted the Golden Icon Award on his behalf.
"'Michael is so strong. He gets better and better with every movie he makes," Danny said. "So that's why I tell him to work more."
Douglas was diagnosed with throat cancer in August and has been undergoing chemo therapy and radiation treatments.
A month after the news, the actor stepped out on the red carpet for the premiere of 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,' in which he reprises his role as Gordon Gecko.
