Welcoming A New Family
Its no secret that the Douglas clan, including the new Mrs. Michael Douglas, are blessed with great acting genes. Now along with Douglass and Michaels Oscars, Catherine Zeta-Jones won her own for Best Supporting Actress in "Chicago." How did Michael feel about that moment?
I cant even begin to say. When you have such unadulterated love for someone, and to see this opportunity she never thought shed have to sing and dance again, and all the hard work they did and then to win an Oscar, its been a heck of a year.
Oscar was somewhat illusive in Douglas's life. He was nominated in 1950 for Champion, in 1953 for Bad and the Beautiful and 1957 for Lust for Life, but didnt take home the statue until 1996 when he was presented with an honorary Oscar from the academy. Michael won an Oscar as best actor in Wall Street in 1987. For One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest (1975), a project that Douglas wanted to star in but became too old for the part once it was green lighted, Michael took home a producing Oscar for Best Picture.
But both mens Oscars probably dont get the regard that Catherine places on hers. It sets in the middle of our dining table, explained Michael, and Dylan already knows what kind of respect it deserves. First thing he does when he sits down for breakfast is say, Good morning Oscar.
Douglas has been involved in humanitarian causes and has been a Goodwill Ambassador for the US State Dept since 1963. In 1981 he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Douglas will next star in The Illusion.
