Actor Michael Douglas pretends to be legendary actor Richard Burton in order to make his love life a bit more kinky, according to a published report.
The handsome 61-year-old star insists he uses Richard Burton's Welsh accent to get his Wales-born wife Catherine Zeta-Jones in the mood for love-making.
He tells TV host Jay Leno, "You close your eyes once in a while, put on a Richard Burton accent maybe - something from the home country - it gives a little variety, the spice of life."
And what does Catherine Zeta-Jones owe for the generous deed?
Well, Michael Douglas says he would be pleased if she were to throw on a kinky nurse's outfit at some point in future encounters.
He says, "I'm kind of waiting for Catherine to play a nurse."
This jaw-dropping confession comes 14 years after Michael, who's track-record consists of serial womanising, was treated for his sex addiction.
The 'Basic Instinct' star tied the knot with his second wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, in the year 2000 and have two children together, 2-year-old Carys and 5-year-old Dylan.
Michael Douglas has also revealed that he refused a role in 'Basic Instinct 2' because he has no desire to put his rear-end on display.
Michael played the role of detective Nick Curran in the first movie, but has no desire to join
48-year-old Sharon Stone for the movie's sequel because he feels that he's too old.
He says, "We did the first one as good as you can."
"They offered the sequel to me years ago, and I just saw no reason to do it. Have you seen my rear lately?"
But the star has plans for his next movie, 'King Of California', where he will have a full beard and play a jazz musician - and wife Catherine loves the look.
He says, "Well, you know we're into our sixth year together. She went, 'I kind of fancy that.'"
IDLYITW says, 'Sorry if this doesn't get us as turned on as you thought it would, Mikey. The image of my sexually deviant grandpa hopped up on Cialis and fumbling on top of Catherine Zeta-Jones is about as sexy as the thought of me going down on Kimberly Stewart in a patch of poison ivy. Thanks dude, my penis just jumped off and is shivering in the corner. Come on little fella, it's okay. The old man can't hurt you anymore.'
