Michael Douglas conjured up some fond memories on Instagram this week when he posted two photos sparking a major reaction from fans. 

The celebrated star paid tribute to someone very special on social media as he wished his good friend and Fatal Attraction co-star, Glenn Close, a happy birthday.

In one throwback image, Michael had his arm draped around her as they appeared on set of the famous movie.

Michael is married to Catherine Zeta-Jones and the two share children, Dylan, 22, and Carys, 19. Both their son and daughter have expressed an interest in following in their parent's footsteps - despite Michael's stern warnings. 

But last week, Catherine, suggested that it was taking a little longer than expected for her kids to break into the industry.

Issuing an emotional yet friendly reminder about success, Catherine wrote: "Words to our kids!!! A reminder that sometimes you have to be patient. But when that moment comes? You better be ready."

Back in 2021, Catherine admitted that she and Michael have done their best to deter their children from following in their famous footsteps.

Michael and Catherine have been married since 2000

"Michael and I would be the first parents to say, 'You know, maybe you should think of another career,' but we've seen how passionate they are about the craft. They know what celebritydom is. They know the good, the bad, warts and all that," she said on Today.

She continued: "But their passion is about acting as a craft and they've done every theatre camp – my kids went off to summer camp every year, to theatre camp with the Broadway kids, and held their own very, very well, I have to say."
