Transcript for Michael Douglas on becoming a grandfather
?????? The always delicious Michael Douglas is in the superhero sequel, "Ant-man and the wasp," and he is sizing up the situation to get ant-man back into action. Take a look. We need a component to stop the tunnel from overloading again. I grabbed your clothes. You may want to change. Look. I would really like to help you out, but if I'm not home when they come to take off my ankle monitor, I'm going away forever. Once we get the component running and power up the tunnel, we'll get you home by lunch. The entangle pt won't last. You owe us. Can I at least wait inside? I'm not supposed to be out here. Please welcome Michael Douglas. ?????? ?????? Thank you. Thank you very much. Nice to be here. They like you. They really like you. They really like me. Please give your father all my respect. Thank you. My parents in sedona, and my mother would leave my father for you. She has to get in line though. I'm telling you. So congrats on the film. Congrats on everything, and someone told me you just became a grandfather. Cameron made me a grandfather. There we are. Looks great. A beautiful little girl named Lua, which is Portuguese for the moon. Lua izzy Douglas. Izzy is for Kirk, right? My name is Michael Kirk Douglas. My son named her izzy. Which is what? Kirk -- originally his name was izdore. He is 101, your father. I know he's jewish, so does he fell from his legacy? He fells. I got back from California yesterday to spend time with him. We were reminiscing. He has done 90 plus movies in about 60, 70 years. I have got 60 movies in 50 years. He has grandchildren who all want to be actors. Of course. I can see 250 movies in the next 150 years. Double it. Right. So you and Catherine have two children at home. Your son went to prom. Great hair by the way. Did you have any advice for him as he heads off into the world? Right now -- he is spending the summer in Europe with six of his friends. Oh, wow. My advice to him in capital letters is have fun. Oh. Enjoy it. Savor it. Sometimes youth is wasted on the young, and we're always rushing so fast, you know, to be older and the next thing we know we want to start acting younger. Enjoy where you are. That's great advice, and what's also great is the movie "Ant-man and the wasp" because I saw it last night. It is so much fun. You are so great in it. What is fun about being in one of the superhero movies? You know, besides for me -- this is a sequel. "Ant-man and the wasp," this is my second cgi, green screen picture, which I never did before. It's all new, and once you get there, and there are these green walls and there is nothing there. They're telling you asteroids are coming here, and you're looking here and rocking here. It's, like, kids make believe, you know? It gives you a whole new respect for acting, but the real joy that I'm finding about it, the picture turned out great, is the idea in this world now that's getting so divisive, so so fragmented, so much anger, you can see this movie around the world in 40 different languages. It makes everybody laugh and reminds me how magical the movie business is, it brings us all together. So true. Yes. I couldn't think about anything but this film. It's coming out July 6th. It's a great fourth of July movie. If you want to get away from what's going on. Your co-star in the movie, Paul rudd, said that you have a great head of hair, which has been noticed before. True. And are basically competing with Jeff bridges for best hair in Hollywood. So you can be honest. No one has to know. Who do you really think wins that? Well, Jeff's always got a -- I never really -- I know that I act with my hair. Like Jack Nicholson who is a dear friend of mine. What's with the hair stuff? What's with the hair? When I had it curled. You're acting with your hair all the time. Oh, you should talk, jack. He is always doing this stuff. Jeff's got a great head of hair, but that's nice to say. We should starlet a new prize for that. He is cheating. Your dad has the best head of hair. 101, and he has a full head of hair. Come back any time. You're always welcome here. It's always good to see you. Great to see you guys. A pleasure. So "Ant-man and the wasp" will be in theaters and imax July 6th, and we of course, you
