'I suddenly felt very lightheaded and forgot everything,' she recalled. 'And then I felt one knots in my neck , right next to where Bruce found his.' Danner's husband, Bruce Paltrow, also had a rare form of oral cavity cancer. In 2002, the film producer died of the disease. 'Are you lonely up there?' Danner wondered after Diagnosis.

At first she didn't tell her children, Gwyneth and Jake Paltrow (47). 'I wanted to continue as a mother, and I didn't want them to worry,' explained Blythe Danner. 'Of course I was very shocked,' her famous daughter recalled in an interview with 'People'. 'It was scary. And it felt really scary because it was so similar to my dad,' Paltrow said.
