“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.
