Kelly & Michael: Michael Douglas
Michael Douglas came by to talk to Kelly & Michael and KellyRipa called him “a television star, a movie star, and one of the nicest stars we know.” He danced over to Kelly & Michael. Michael Strahan said he had some dangerous moves, but he said he was just trying to keep up with him. Kelly said that his eyes were popping with his suit. He said he spent a lot of time this morning figuring that out.
Kelly & Michael: Michael Douglas Summer
Michael asked Douglas how his summer was going and if he and his wife Catherine Zeta Jones did anything with the kids. They took off the day after school and went to Israel and had a great time. He took a picture of himself in the Dead Sea and put it on Facebook. Michael said that he needs to go because he finds it hard to believe you can just float like that. They also went to Rome and then Catherine took the kids to Wales where she’s from to see their grandparents and Douglas went to Scotland to play some golf. Catherine golfs too. She’s almost as good as Douglas. Kelly can’t golf or play tennis. She can ski though. Michael asked what would happen if Catherine beat him at golf, but he said it’s not going to happen. There are no golf carts in Scotland so he walked and came back seven pounds lighter.
Kelly & Michael: Kirk Douglas Book
Douglas’ father, Kirk Douglas, is 97 years old now. He’s Douglas’ hero and he just finished his tenth book, which was poetry that he liked and wrote. The title is It Could Be Verse, which is an amazing name. It’s very clever. He wrote his first book when he was 70. He writes longhand on a yellow pad. His mother’s 92. He has good genes.
Kelly & Michael: Diane Keaton Wall of Men
Diane Keaton was on the show recently. They talked about her wall of men and how she added Michael Strahan to the wall. Then they played a clip of them kissing. “She’s a kisser,” Douglas said. Kelly asked if he had a wall of men that he longed to kiss. “No. I did Liberace,” Douglas said. He said he’d start a wall right now. The Michaels kissed each other on the cheeks and Kelly said that doesn’t count.
Kelly & Michael: Michael’s Milestones
Michael Douglas played “Michael’s Milestones” with all of his firsts besides his first time working with Keaton. Kelly joked that for each incorrect answer he’d have to remove an article of clothing.
His fist car was a 1947 Mercury called the Ruptured Duck. His first onscreen kiss was Tisha Sterling, who was Ann Sothern’s daughter, in a movie called Experiment. His first off screen kiss was Jodi Foster in Westport, Connecticut. Douglas talked about cashmere sweaters that women used to button up in the back that she wore. His first pet was a bull snake that was really thick and eight feet long. His father got it for him for his birthday. It was in a burlap bag in his office. He brought it out to show his father’s secretary and she fainted.
His first celebrity crush was Julie Christy. Danny DeVito was his first roommate right out of college in New York. The first movie he saw in the theater was Lilly and Lust for Life where his father played Vincent Van Gogh. His brother was seven and screamed and ran out of the theater when he cut his ear off. He was nominated for an Oscar.
His first paying job was as a gas station attendant. He was Mobile Man of the Month. His first date with his wife was when he saw her at a film festival and they went for drinks. They found out they had the same birth date and he said, “I’m going to be the father of your children.” She said she knew a lot about him and it’s all true and left.

Kelly & Michael: Michael Douglas And So It Goes Review
Douglas talked about And So It Goes. He plays a man who has to look after his granddaughter after his son is sent to jail. He’s a bitter guy, but this is about finding love again. He lost his wife and his business is down. He’s in a fourplex unit, and is the owner of the property. Nobody can stand him, and Diane Keaton is his neighbor. Kelly said these movies give everybody hope.
Keaton said she tortured him on set. He said she’s unpredictable. She says she’s not an actress, just a person. She always listens to music and doesn’t pay attention. She turns the music off and nails it. She’s a huge flirt too. She doesn’t like to talk about men, but Douglas loved working with her.
There’s a scene where Douglas delivered a baby on a sofa. When he had his daughter and Catherine was in labor, the nurse asked if she wanted a mirror, and Catherine lost it and kept asking “What is that?” It was similar to the movie.
They played a clip of And So It Goes. Douglas’ character talks to a piano player. He’s there to take Keaton on a date, and Douglas told him he was sleeping with her and not to embarrass himself. Then the piano player slipped on a slip-n-slide. The piano player was the director. He doesn’t have much hair, but he came out with a hair piece on, and Douglas didn’t know if it was supposed to be funny or not. And So It Goes will be on theaters on July 25 2014.
