Press Trust of India  |  London 

Actor Michael Douglas says he feels lucky that his father Kirk Douglas is still alive and kicking.

The 72-year-old actor says he has a strong bond with his 100-year-old dad and enjoys hanging out with him when he can, reported Femalefirst.

"He's a pistol. When I come out here, I stay at my dad's house. He's got a little apartment above the garage. I cherish the fact of how fortunate I am at my age that my dad's still around. He's gonna be 101 in December, he's still sharp, got a good sense of humour and can share deep stories that go beyond being father and son," Michael says.

The actor says his father perks up even more if his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones comes to visit.

"He's a lot better when my wife's out here, he seems to perk up when Catherine's around. He says, 'Oh, my goodness, look at you, you little rascal.
