Michael Douglas graces cover of Vanity Fair’s April 2010 issue

Michael Douglas Vanity Fair April 2010 Cover

Michael Douglas graces the April 2010 cover of Vanity Fair and inside he opens up about his 31-year-old son Cameron, who faces ten years behind bars on drug charges. The Wall Street 2 actor also talks about his relationship with his father, Kirk, and his family with Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Here’s what Michael had to share:

On his father, Kirk Douglas: “He was a very intense, talented survivalist… He was consumed with clawing out and making something of himself, and he probably was a little early in his career to have children. Certainly didn’t get a chance to enjoy them until later in life.”

On his son, Cameron, who’s in jail for dealing crystal meth: “Anybody who has a relative or child in substance abuse has some idea of what this feels like. It will ultimately be a painful lesson and very expensive as far as time is concerned. I don’t wish it on anybody, but then, you know, look, everybody’s got difficult things in life.”

On what he’s learned about making marriage work: “We always tend to be kinder or make more of an effort to strangers than we do to the person closest to us.”

Vanity Fair’s April 2010 issue hits newsstands in New York and Los Angeles on Wednesday (March 3) and nationwide next Tuesday (March 9). For more from Michael, visit VanityFair.com.
