Are we about to see the following era of one of many longest, most profitable performing dynasties of all time??
Catherine Zeta-Jones stopped by The Drew Barrymore Present on Tuesday and couldn’t assist however spill the tea on her children, mom-to-mom.
Her daughter Carys Douglas simply turned 18, and — because it seems — is enthusiastic about performing, similar to her mother and father! And so is her 20-year-old son, Dylan Douglas! She gushed:
“Their love of the craft of performing is so robust… their brains, they’re doing politics and historical past at school, however their ardour is performing. They usually’ve by no means accomplished something skilled, however they want to go into performing.”
Their father, Michael Douglas, is a second era film star, the son of the late, nice Kirk Douglas. So he had some phrases of knowledge for them about making a reputation for themselves once they’re residing in such a giant shadow.
Chatting with Drew Barrymore, who’s additionally Hollywood royalty — her father was John Drew Barrymore, his father was John Barrymore, his siblings have been Ethel and Lionel Barrymore, Catherine defined how her children have been warned they have been all the time going to be in comparison with their mother and father:
“And you come from a household the place your identify is synonymous… very very like Michael, very related tales the place you each needed to be, ‘The children of.’ I by no means had that. I used to be like, ‘Audition? I’m in. They don’t need me, I’ll simply queue up across the nook and return and stand in line once more.’ However my children, Michael has stated to them what it’s prefer to be, ‘the daughter of’ in the identical trade, which is, I assume, related in case you are in enterprise. In case you are profitable in enterprise, your children have, it’s not a straightforward means in; in truth one has to show oneself extra. So even with that deterrent my children are like, ‘No, sorry we nonetheless wish to do it.’”
Effectively, it’s nice that they received’t be deterred, however we’re fairly positive she’s simply 100% flawed.
Even when their well-known mother and father by no means pull a single string to get their children a nomination, filmmakers will line as much as give them auditions as a result of they’re “the youngsters of.” And savvy producers will know audiences are invested in them already in a means they aren’t with different unknowns. Certain everybody shall be evaluating them, however they’ll be trying, they’ll be . And that’s a hell of an edge on this enterprise. Heck, we’re writing about them, and so they haven’t even been in a film but!
Anyway, whether or not they’re profitable or not, CZJ says what she desires most for her children is contentment:
“And I’ve had an exquisite life being an actor and in the event that they get half the enjoyment that I’ve had. All I need is my children to be pleased and wholesome, all the things else is a bonus, proper?”
What do YOU assume? Is it really more durable being the kid of a film star??
