Douglas was born in New Brunswick, New Jersey, he was the first child of the actress Diana Hill and the actor Kirk Douglas.
Douglas received his first Oscar as a producer of the film One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. His first Oscar as an actor came for his leading role in the 1988 film Wall Street . Later, his performance in Fatal Attraction (1987) consolidated his status as a box office star. He followed that with another two successful films, in a similar role: Basic Instinct and Disclosure. Among his latest projects it is worth mentioning Traffic by Steven Sodebergh, the comedy Last Vegas and Behind de Candelabra.
He spent 23 years with Diandra Luke and had a son with her, Cameron. In 1989, Michael and his former wife Diandra purchased a house in the municipality of Valldemossa, La Estaca, the former property of Archduke Ludwig Salvator of Austria, and one of the most beautiful on the island.
Michael separated from Diandra and remarried in 2000, this time with the Welsh actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, who he has two children with. In the same year, Michael began a project named Costa Nord, a cultural centre for holding concerts, including Art Garfunkel, which linked Hollywood to the island. In 2004, Douglas sold the centre to the Regional Government.
Douglas is a great connoisseur and lover of the island, and especially of Valldemossa; he has always got involved with his neighbours and has earned the lovely nickname “Miquel de s’Estaca”.
