The octogenarian head of CBS Corp and Viacom Inc told CNN talk show host Larry King at the Milken Institute Global Conference that he made a “miracle recovery” from prostate cancer due to his “highly disciplined” consumption of “every antioxidant known to man” even when he doesn’t feel like it.
“My doctor says that he’s seen a lot of men slow down the aging process but I am the only man who has reversed it,” Redstone crowed at the hour-long interview that packed two conference rooms at the Milken Institute Global Conference on Wednesday in Beverly Hills.
Sumner, also repeatedly insisted, to King’s annoyance, that he is 65 years old.
“Suddenly you don’t look so amazing,” King retorted.
Sumner is 85.
That robust health and need for a challenge extends to every aspect of his life: “The most attractive women are married,” the recently divorced Redstone told King. “Sometimes a husband doesn’t count.”
