Actor Michael Douglas might be closer to 80 in years, but he confessed that he feels much, much younger, according to a post he recently shared on his social media account.


Last Friday, Michael Douglas, 76, took to Instagram to share a throwback image of himself. In the black-and-white photo, the actor was still a young boy with his fresh good looks.

He smiled in the photograph while looking away from the camera. Douglas wore a light-colored golf T-shirt in the image that appeared to have been taken outside as trees were seen in the background.

In the post's short caption, the “Basic Instinct” star captioned the image by noting that it had been taken in the good old days. He then revealed how old he actually felt, stating:

“Still feels like yesterday to me!”


Clearly, Douglas might be aging on the outside, but nothing’s changed much for him on the inside. One of the “Kominsky Method” actor’s fans thought the statement was hilarious and supported it by writing:

"Awesome now and then...”


Unfortunately for Douglas, time hasn’t stood still, and last November, he and his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, 51, celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary. Both stars took to social media to honor the day.

Zeta-Jones uploaded a fun look through their years together in a video. While her husband wished her a happy anniversary with a voice clip of him speaking about the first time he saw her on film.


Douglas became a father in 1978 when he welcomed his eldest son, Cameron. He had his child with his first wife, Diandra Luker, whom he married in 1977 and then separated from in 1995.

Douglas and Zeta-Jones aren’t the only celebrity couple who have such a huge age difference.

In 2000, the couple’s divorce was finalized, and in the same year, the “Falling Down” actor married Zeta-Jones. Their first child together, a son named Dylan, was welcome in August 2000.

In 2003, the pair had a daughter named Carys. Even though the “Shining Through” star and his wife have an age gap of twenty-five years, they aren’t the only celebrity couple who have such a huge age difference.

Actor Dennis Quaid and his wife Laura Savoie have a 39 year age gap. Actresses Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor have a 31 year age gap between them but could still make their relationship successful.
