Michael Douglas’ son Cameron wrote to his grandfather “a gift to the world; a guiding light and source of inspiration. “I Love you. #103 to #infinity,” in a birthday message.
Last month, Michael Douglas revealed to Jimmy Kimmel that his father wanted just a small birthday celebration as opposed to the extravagant affair the family usually presented year after year.
“So, he was 100, big birthday, big birthday. The trouble is, when you’re 100, you don’t really want a big birthday,” Michael explained. “I threw a big party for him, it was great.”
“101. You know, ‘OK, let’s have a nice party.’ ‘Again? I don’t…’ ‘Dad, it’s 101 years old. You have to have a birthday.’ 102…” he continued. “He’s begging me, he’s got tears running down. ‘Let’s just have dinner, the family together. Bring the kids.'”
Michael also shared in an image of himself with his father after receiving a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a TV series – Musical or Comedy, for “The Kominsky Method.”
“12.9.2019 what a great day!” Michael added. “Thank you to the [Hollywood Foreign Press Association] for the @GoldenGlobes nomination, and for making my Dad proud on his 103rd birthday! #TheKominskyMethod.”
Happy birthday, Kirk Douglas!
