Michael: I’m no sex addict

Michael Douglas has denied that he is addicted to sex. The actor, who is married to Hollywood hottie Catherine Zeta Jones, claims the stories were merely an exaggeration on his visit to rehab 16 years ago, which was for alcoholism.

He explains, “Sex sells. Around 1990 I voluntarily went into rehab because I was drinking too much and some smart ass editor said, ‘oh another boring story about an actor going to rehab. Let’s give him sex addiction.’ Then it became ‘Self-confessed sex addict!'” He adds, “I don’t remember ever mentioning it!”
