For Michael Douglas’ sake, let’s hope life doesn’t imitate art! The Kominsky Method actor, 75, talked exclusively to Us Weekly at PaleyFest NY about his character, Sandy, in the Golden Globe-winning series — and specifically the character of Sandy’s daughter (Sarah Baker), who’s dating an older man.
When asked how he’d feel if his own daughter, Carys, 16, brought home someone older, he was candid. “I think it would kill me,” he told Us in the new issue. Douglas’ wife (and Carys’ mom) is Catherine Zeta-Jones, who’s 25 years younger than the Oscar winner; and Douglas’ first wife, Diandra Luker, is 12 years his junior. “I’d try to support her but I’d be watching very carefully,” he explained about Carys.
He continued, “Catherine and I have been talking about it. We’re very close to the first boyfriend coming, she’s been very picky but she’s right on the cusp.”
