Michael Douglas nyc hat school pink

Michael Douglas is enjoying the brisk New York City air as he walks his daughter Carys to school.

The actor, who is now healthy after a battle with throat cancer, is gearing up for his upcoming role as Liberace ... co-starring Matt Damon as his lover. Production is expected to begin at the end of the year.

Just last week, Michael and wife Catherine Zeta-Jones arrived at their London hotel where a fight broke out involving Zeta-Jones. The gorgeous actress claims a photographer shoved her. Zeta-Jones could be heard saying, "I want a police officer right now. He punched me!"

Glad to see Douglas has put the frightening incident behind him.

Find out why the couple were in London ... after the break.
