Kirk Douglas was photographed camping out in grandson Cameron Douglas’s backyard.
There’s not a lot slowing down Hollywood icon Kirk Douglas. At the grand age of 102, he enjoys camping out in a tent, albeit in a backyard.
These photos were snapped by grandson Cameron Douglas at home and posted on his Instagram account. Granddad is pictured lying on an air mattress in a small dome tent beside the pool.
People website said the post, which appears to have been deleted, quoted Cameron Douglas saying: “This amazing man, my Pappy, is such inspiration in so many ways! Going camping at 102! #Spartacus#thrunthru 📸@Lisa.”
The Douglas family held a birthday party for Kirk on December 9, 2018. Guests included son Michael Douglas and his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones.
As well as being one of the last actors of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Kirk Douglas has survived a helicopter crash, a stroke, heart surgery, family tragedy, and battle injuries in World War II.
In 2015, Douglas was portrayed by Kiwi actor Dean O’Gorman in the film Trumbo, which was based on those in the film industry who were blacklisted on suspicion of of communist leanings.
Douglas has attributed his longevity to his “soulmate” – his second wife Anne Buydens. He met the Belgian-American actress, philanthropist, and producer in 1953 while filming Act of Love in Paris.
The couple has devoted much of their time to humanitarian work and donated many millions of dollars to charities over the years.
