Michael Douglas Faces Criticisms After Stepping Out With His Daughter At Cannes Festival


In the early part of Michael Douglas’s life, he did not exhibit the qualities of a devoted father, as he was engrossed in his thriving Hollywood career. This impacted the relationship between him and his son Cameron, who he welcomed with Diandra Luker at the age of 43.

However, Michael found a deep and profound connection when he met his second wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones. In the year 2000, the actor and Zeta-Jones exchanged vows, solidifying their commitment to one another, and thereafter welcomed a son, Dylan Michael, and their precious baby girl, Carys Zeta Douglas, into the world.


Michael Douglas had a change of perspective after the birth


Interestingly, the birth of his children became a pivotal moment for Michael, prompting him to reflect on the necessary measures he must undertake to ensure his children enjoyed a balanced and loving upbringing.  The actor revealed that he made a resolute decision to prioritize his role as a father above anything else.

“My career was the most important thing in my life, followed by marriage and children,” he admitted. “And it’s completely reversed now. I never anticipated starting a family and the joy of raising kids at my age. During my first marriage, my career was the most important thing in my life, I clearly know I made mistakes. There were absences.”


The actor was labeled as old when he stepped out with his daughter at the Cannes Film Festival

Recently, during the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, a remarkable and infrequent sight unfolded as Douglas graced the event, emanating a sense of immense pride while standing alongside the two most significant women in his life—his daughter and his wife.


However, instead of recognizing the significance of the moment or appreciating the tenderness displayed, critics were quick to redirect their attention toward the actor, subjecting him to derogatory remarks and unfairly labeling him as “old” and comparing him to a “fossil.”

“How come, wife, is still hotter than ever but the husband’s, a old hagger,” a Facebook user mocked.

What do you think of their relationship?
