Michael Douglas’ kids banned from watching his films

Actor Michael Douglas does not allow his children to watch his movies as most of his films are R-rated.


The 70-year-old actor, who has son Dylan, 14, and daughter Carys, 12, feels the kids are still too young to see most of his work, “They haven’t seen a lot of my pictures, most of my career is R-rated,” Douglas said.

The “Basic Instinct” actor was speaking at a seminar and revealed, he was furious when he recently discovered Dylan had secretly watched his sexy thrillers “Fatal Attraction” and “Basic Instinct” at their home.

“I said, ‘You saw Basic Instinct?’ and then he realised he was in a little bit of trouble. He goes, ‘Well, I only looked at the parts with you, Dad, not Sharon Stone.” But the Oscar-winning star is glad that his new Marvel film “Ant-Man” is suitable for his family.

He also confessed that his son advised him to take on the role as it would bring him close to fans of new generation.

“Dylan came to me when I was reading the script and took it out of my hand and said, ‘Dad, let me explain something to you, This is a whole new audience for you, Dad. My friends will know who you are’.” he said.
