If there’s one thing that two Hollywood actor couples could pass on to their children is their acting skills. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas' two children, Carys, 12, and Dylan, 14, stepped out with their famous parents on a red carpet in Jerusalem, Israel this Thursday for a very big event.
Douglas was honored with the $2 million Genesis Prize, often called the "Jewish Nobel Prize," and Catherine and the kids came along to support, ET wrote. Meanwhile, the Ant-Man actor dishes in an interview with Variety that his two children, who are all grown-up wanted to follow their footsteps with his wife and actress Catherine Zeta-Jones.
"My son and my daughter both want to be in the business,” the 71-year-old actor admits. “They both want to act and I've told them to be ready for rejection. That's the one part I always warn everybody starting out in the business. You have to be able to take a hit and keep on going no matter what.”
"It's hard, but you have to deal with it because it's going to happen," he continued. "I experienced lots of rejection in my career and it's never easy. You have to keep on going and someone will say yes."
The Oscar-winning actor also shared candidly with his battle with tongue cancer, which he announced 5 years ago with ET last July of this year, in an interview Douglas has been cancer-free since January 2011 after being diagnosed with stage four in 2010, has been thankful to his 46-year-old wife for constant love and support.
"Once you come out of that end, you have a resurgence of energy and you take advantage of what you want to do with your life," he said. "You have to be conscious about how many years you have and anything beyond that is gravy. I am extremely fortunate."
