Being an Emmy-winning comedy actor doesn’t mean you’ve got jokes in real life. Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones’ son Dylan Douglas recently revealed that his famous father, like most regular dads, “can be embarrassing sometimes.” Dylan, 22, clarified that this is more in terms of what Michael says, rather than who he is. He joked that his dad is “a bit out of touch, bad jokes for sure!”
Michael and Zeta-Jones met at the 1998 Deauville Film Festival and married in November 2000. They share two children, Dylan and daughter Carys, 20. Michael also has an older son named Cameron, 44, from a previous marriage.
Michael is now deeply involved in The Douglas Foundation, a charitable organization established by his father, Kirk Douglas, and stepmother Anne Buydens. Kirk passed away in 2020 at the age of 103 and Buydens passed away in 2021 at the age of 102. Michael told Page Six he’s helping run his late father Kirk’s charitable foundation, which focuses on charities that Kirk was involved with for a long time before.
Michael and Dylan attended the Broadway opening of “Good Night, Oscar” on Monday to support the show’s star Sean Hayes. Hayes plays real-life concert pianist and actor Oscar Levant, who was famous for being one of the first celebrities to talk openly about his struggles with mental health. Other celebrities in attendance included Jason Bateman, Matt Damon, John Krasinski, Steven Spielberg, Cynthia Nixon, LaChanze, Steve Martin, Justin Theroux, Martin Short and Matthew Rhys. Matthew Broderick also came with his “work wife” Scott Wittman.
