    And as the actor grows older, he proves that he’s still as sharp as ever, despite suffering a stroke over 20 years ago in 1996.

    Here’s an example of Kirk’s razor-sharp mind during an interview in which the actor talks about his relationship with the late-great Hollywood legend Gary Cooper.

    In November, his son Michael revealed on Live with Kelly and Ryan that Kirk is a huge fan of FaceTime.

    “He’s amazing. He’s discovered FaceTime. He just loves it,” he said.

    In December, Michael also shared that his dad remains skilled at betting on sporting events.

    “He beats me all the time,” said the actor, who nabbed a 2019 Golden Globe nomination for his work in The Kominsky Method. “The last bet I made with him was for $100 on a Jets game — and I lost.”

    “I’m a big sports junkie and my father knows nothing about [the games],” Michael added. “I can pick any team and he’ll just take the other one … and [yet] he cleans my clock.”

    When Michael earned his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in November, Kirt was right there beaming with pride over his son’s accomplishment. And of course, his son sent him a special shout-out during the ceremony.

    “It means so much to me, Dad, that you’re here today,” Michael said in his speech. “Thank you for your advice, inspiration, and I’ll say it simply and with all my heart: I’m so proud to be your son.”

    “Seeing Kirk get emotional when Michael said, ‘I’m so proud to be your son, Dad’ — even now I think about it,” Zeta-Jones told PEOPLE Now later in November. “Kirk being there in his wheelchair — he was adamant. No way he was not going to be there.”

    Kirk Douglas is an amazing man who continues to live a blessed and incredible life surrounded by his loving family.
