His son is, of course, the famous actor Michael Douglas.

As he ages, Michael Douglas is coming to look more and more like his father, legendary actor Kirk Douglas. The two have always shared a striking resemblance. As Michael revealed on Late Show With David Letterman, even his dad is starting to have trouble telling them apart.

The younger Douglas, at 69 years old, recalled a phone call he’d received about six months ago from his 97-year old dad. Kirk said that he was watching one of his own old films on television, but he couldn’t remember it.

Michael Douglas and his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones.

“Well, Dad, you’re getting older,” Michael told him. But Kirk insisted that wasn’t it.

“I kept looking and then I realised, it wasn’t me, it was you,” Kirk told his son.

In 30 years, it’ll probably be Michael watching Spartacus or Champion and wondering why he can’t remember making that film. — Reuters
