Michael Douglas, the renowned actor, recently opened up about the challenges of being an older parent in an interview with The Telegraph.

Reflecting on an awkward encounter at a university campus while visiting one of his children, the Fatal Attraction star recalled being mistaken for a grandparent rather than a parent.

Douglas shares two children, Dylan, 23, and Carys, who just turned 21, with his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones. Both kids attended Brown University, with Dylan graduating in 2022. Despite the age gap, Douglas described his younger children as “extraordinary beings” and expressed gratitude for the joy they have brought into his life.
