Kirk Douglas celebrates his 101st birthday

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

He deserves credit for having the courage to give screen credit to the then blacklisted Dalton Trumbo ( as does Otto Preminger ). He once called himself a SOB for the way he screwed around during his marriages. He said he once punished a woman who was an anti-Semite waiting till she climaxed and then screaming “I am a Jew! You are being f— by a Jew!” I only hope the rumor about Douglas repeatedly raping the young Natalie Wood is just that, a rumor.

I don't know anything about Kirk Douglas' private life, so I don't know what his relationship with women was like.
It does seem to me that if he was so proud of being a Jew he might have changed his name to something other than Douglas when he went into the movies though.

And I quit assuming that living to be 101 was such a good thing when my mom recently died at the age of 95. Everyone who didn't know better commented that it was so wonderful she had such a long life.
It's only a good thing if you can still see and walk and hear and feed yourself and go to the bathroom by yourself and recognize old friends when they come to visit and if you have enough money to have private care outside an institution. If you are able to keep your dignity and do some things to maintain some independence, I guess living that long is good. But to be honest, I've never known anyone wealthy enough OR healthy enough to live happily into the 90's or 100 year range.
Science can now keep us alive but it can't keep us healthy. Until it can, I would never, ever want to live to be 95 like my mom did. She would have been much happier had she died several years earlier, and I suspect a lot of centenarians would feel the same way if they were honest.

Kirk Douglas received a standing ovation at the Golden Globes Sunday night, but Twitter users slammed Hollywood for honoring the 101-year-old at an event where many spoke out against sexual harassment.

It's been rumored for decades that Douglas, who turned 101 last month, raped Natalie Wood. Viewers at home didn't forget this, and criticized the Globes for celebrating Douglas' career, with his daughter-in-law, Catherine Zeta-Jones, by his side.

Wood was reportedly raped as a teenager, and it's unclear who the male star was. She was reportedly discouraged from reporting the rape to police by her mother. Suzanne Finstad, who wrote Natasha: The Biography of Natalie Wood, only described the rapist as a "powerful, married movie star," the BBC reported in 2001.

Douglas' wife, Anne Douglas, also wrote in a 2017 book that Douglas "never tried to hide" his affairs with other women.

“Kirk never tried to hide his dalliances from me,” Anne wrote. “As a European, I understood it was unrealistic to expect total fidelity in a marriage.”
