Carys appeared on the magazine's annual Modern Swan issue, which features an upcoming star from the entertainment industry with famous parents.


The 15-year-old admitted that she was bullied by her peers in school because of her father's age. Michael Douglas is 73 years old and his wife, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is 48.

“People would be like 'Your grandpa's here to pick you up,” she admitted to the publication. Carys also added that when she was younger, she did not really like the idea of having the Douglas name attached to her.

“When I was younger I didn’t like the idea of having this name attached to me, this kind of ‘Douglas dynasty’ stuff.”

She said that people just assumed that she did not work hard for anything and that she just got what she wanted, but in reality, it was the complete opposite.


She constantly felt the need to prove herself to people, that she was not just her parents' daughter but her own person as well.

Carys confidently debates Italian cinematography and reads biographies of the Maharaja of Jaipur, proving to the interviewer that she was not like any other 15-year-old.

The teenager credited her mother, Catherine Zeta-Jones, with giving her a love of fashion and she considers her mother to be her fashion icon.

She also acknowledged her parents for their role in keeping both her and her eighteen-year-old brother Dylan Douglas, grounded.

She added that her parents do a really good job of making her realize the reality of life and reminding her that the life she has was extraordinary.
