Jump To Michael Douglas' Stats
Michael Douglas has accomplished the height of his profession, but one of his greatest feats was marrying her hotness Catherine Zeta Jones. Their romance began on the set of a controversial movie called Traffic that gained both critical and commercial success. Of all the statuettes Douglas possesses, Catherine stands above them all.
Douglas has a long list of those statutes and they started to come early in his career. It's hard to determine whether he's had more success acting or producing movies because he owns multiple awards for both. His father, Kirk, early on gave him the movie rights to a book called One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Even though Michael considered playing the leading role, he just produced it and allowed Jack Nicholson the privilege of accepting an Oscar for his startling performance. Michael too, took home one as Best Producer.
His appearances in movies commanded the same attention. He appeared opposite Kathleen Turner in the War of the Roses franchise – which he also produced. He won an Oscar for Best Actor for his portrayal of Gordon Gekko in Wall Street opposite Charlie Sheen. He had multiple movie success with others including, Disclosure with Demi Moore, Fatal Attraction with Glen Close and Basic Instinct with Sharon Stone. It seemed as though Michael Douglas was an automatic money maker when put in the lead.
In 2011, Douglas discovered an anomaly in his throat that was diagnosed as cancerous. He has since had an operation and been convalescing with his gorgeous wife Catherine. Considering that he already has done more that most people can dream about in a life time – especially the Zeta part – he may be taking it easy and just resting away on that sizable fortune.
