(Newser) – Michael Douglas has dropped a lot of weight during his chemo treatment for throat cancer—he reportedly went from 175 pounds to 139—but a friend tells Radar that he's now on a determined eating campaign to gain it back. The accompanying story has a photo of Douglas on a motorized scooter at Disney World, with a quote from "an onlooker" saying "he looked frail and sick ... (and) most definitely looked like he needed the wheelchair." (Click here to see the photo.) In a more upbeat image released by Universal Orlando Resort, a smiling Douglas is pictured on a ride with his family.

"He looks thin, it's true, but that is because the chemo eats everything in someone's body," says friend Allen Burry.
