Actor Stanley Tucci Reveals He Had Cancer but Was Successfully Treated

Actor, author,  director, and food lover Stanley Tucci has revealed that he had cancer about three years ago, but it’s been successfully treated.

In an interview in the September issue of Vera, Virgin Atlantic’s inflight magazine, Tucci said he was diagnosed with a tumor at the base of his tongue, and went through months of high-dose radiation and chemo.

“I had a feeding tube for six months,” he told the magazine, adding that the cancer is unlikely to come back.
