Michael og Kirk Douglas

Hollywood-legenden Kirk Douglas er død

Michael Douglas far er død, 103 år gammel.

Kirk Douglas, en av Hollywoods mest berømte og respekterte navn, er død - i en alder av 103 år. Douglas har figurert som både skuespiller ("Spartacus"), produsent og regissør siden Hollywoods gullalder, og etterlater seg Anne Buydens, kona gjennom 65 år, og sønnene Michael, Joel og Eric.

Alle tre har fulgt i sin fars fotspor og jobber i filmbransjen. Sønnen Michael, kjent for blant annet "Wall Street" og "Fatal Attraction" bekrefter dødsfallet overfor People magazine:

"It is with tremendous sadness that my brothers and I announce that Kirk Douglas left us today at the age of 103. To the world, he was a legend, an actor from the golden age of movies who lived well into his golden years, a humanitarian whose commitment to justice and the causes he believed in set a standard for all of us to aspire to. But to me and my brothers Joel and Peter he was simply Dad, to Catherine, a wonderful father-in-law, to his grandchildren and great grandchild their loving grandfather, and to his wife Anne, a wonderful husband. Kirk’s life was well lived, and he leaves a legacy in film that will endure for generations to come, and a history as a renowned philanthropist who worked to aid the public and bring peace to the planet. Let me end with the words I told him on his last birthday and which will always remain true. Dad- I love you so much and I am so proud to be your son."
