76-Year-Old Michael Douglas Says He Was Mistaken For Daughter's Grandfather

It's that time of year again — graduation! While things are different this year (just as they were last year) families were still able to celebrate this academic milestone in a COVID-19 friendly way.

Now, actor Michael Douglas is sharing a funny mishap that happened recently at his 18-year-old daughter's graduation but don't worry, he totally took it on the chin.

As fans know, Michael shares daughter Carys, 18, and son Dylan, 20, with wife Catherine Zeta-Jones.

The actor is also a dad to a son named Cameron, 42, with ex-wife Diandra Luker.

Recently, Michael sat down with Kelly Clarkson and recalled a funny mishap that happened recently at his daughter's graduation.

"We had a lovely experience. It was a virtual graduation," he explained.

"We couldn't actually be in the same room that she was in because of COVID protections and all of that."

"It was so wonderful and we're so proud of her," he clarified before explaining what happened at the ceremony.

"But I've got to tell you, Kelly, it's a little rough when you're going out the doors and the other parents are saying, 'Oh congratulations ... you must be so proud of your granddaughter,'" the actor laughed.

"I'm not gonna take it personal. They're just trying to be nice," he said.

Once Carys leaves for college and son Dylan is back at Brown University, Michael and Catherine will have to adjust to life as empty nesters.

"There is that moment when they're gone and they're out of the house ... and you look at each other and in the back of your mind, you're thinking, 'What are we going to talk about?'" he joked.

It's clear these two did an amazing job raising their kids and now, they get to relax!
