Between Michael Jackson's children onstage at the Grammys and news show of Marie Osmond's son's self-annihilation, the burdens of celebrity kids have experienced considerable media care recently.
In the Apr release of Vanity Fair, role player Michael Douglas speaks frankly on his own experience as a kid of role player Kirk Douglas and how he doubled his father's errors bringing up his own son, Cameron.
"My priorities were really alike (to my father's)," Douglas stated to Vanity Fair's Evgenia Peretz on his son Cameron's formative years. "Career number 1."
Cameron Douglas, thirty-one, lately pled guilty to trafficking crystal meth and cocain, and fronts at least ten years in prison. He will be sentenced Apr 27.
"Anyone who has a relative or kid in drug abuse has a rough idea of what this experiences like," Michael Douglas said to VF. "It will finally be an abominable lesson and really expensive as far as time is related. I do not wish it on anyone, but and so, you know, look, everybody's got complex things in life story."
Michael Douglas, who in Apr will repeat the part of moneyman Gordon Gekko in "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," reportedly has attempted to be a better family man with present wife Catherine Zeta-Jones and their children Dylan and Carys. "I'm certain if he could bottle-feed, he would have," Zeta-Jones assured the mag.
