The "Stand Up to Cancer" telethon Friday was an opportunity for Hollywood A-listers to stand up for those who have had or are now battling the disease, including Michael Douglas.
"He's one of my favorite actors ever," actor Rob Lowe told "Extra's" Lauren Sanchez. "One of my favorite people ever, and he's got everything going for him. Everything."
"Stand Up to Cancer" Co-Founder Katie Couric added, "I think he's remarkably courageous. I think he's so brave to talk candidly and openly about his situation."
Network anchors Katie Couric, Diane Sawyer and Brian Williams are set to host the "Stand Up to Cancer" telecast in an effort to raise awareness -- and more importantly, money -- for cancer research.
The hour-long show will be simulcast commercial-free on September 10 at 8:00 PM (ET/PT) by CBS, ABC and NBC and other cable networks, including HBO, Discovery Health, E!, MLB Network and The Style Network.

The CBS Evening News anchor also revealed that she'd hit the stage for "Dancing with the Stars" to tone up.
"The only reason I'd go on 'Dancing with the Stars' is because I would have to get in really good shape," she says.
But Couric admits she's "happier watching [the show] in my pajamas around my kitchen table eating ice cream!"

Did Alex Rodriguez ask Katie Couric for career advice?!
That rumor is the truth on steroids! The Yankees star asked for some professional tips before the 2007 "60 Minutes" interview in which he denied using performance enhancing drugs.
Last night, Couric confessed to Letterman, "He said, "What team do you think I should play for?' I'm like, hello?" Letterman added, "Well that should have told you he was on the juice."
