Actor Michael Douglas says he “lacked confidence” following in his father and actor Kirk Douglas’s footsteps.
Michael took a long time to feel “a sense of security” in his work because he always worried he would be compared to his 99-year-old father and his career achievements, reports mirror.co.uk.
Speaking on TV show “Good Morning Britain” on Thursday, Michael said: “I lacked confidence I would say. It took me a while to have a sense of security.
“I mean clearly when you have a father like Kirk, he was a big figure to look up to and think, ‘Wow how do you be the man that he is” But I’m not complaining you know, everybody has got their strengths and weaknesses and you just try to overcome those situations and improve your lot in life.”
