Los Angeles – Oscar winner Michael Douglas has revealed a star plaque named on the "Walk of Fame" in the heart of Hollywood.
The 74-year-old celebrated his 50-year career in show business. "Why not for so long," Douglas said, winking in front of hundreds of fans, family members and friends who attended the ceremony on Tuesday.
This 2648 star award coincides with the launch of his new Netflix series "The Kominsky Method" in mid-November, where Douglas mimes is a former acting star.
Douglas took his family to celebrate, including his famous father, Kirk Douglas ("Spartacus"). The 101-year-old actor, who also has a star on the "Walk of Fame", sat smiling in a wheelchair. For photographers, Douglas posed with his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones kissing on a placard. His son, Cameron, from a previous marriage was also there.
In the 1970s, Douglas celebrated his first success as a detective in the TV series "The Streets of San Francisco". As a psychodrama producer "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" (1975) he won his first Oscar. The second trophy he got in 1988 for his role as cruel financial shark Gordon Gekko in Oliver Stone's stock market drama "Wall Street".
