Fans Pay Tribute To The Legendary Kirk Douglas As He Celebrates His 102nd Birthday 🎉

Family and friends are sending out birthday wishes to legendary actor Kirk Douglas, who turned 102 on December 9, 2018.

The actor began his career by first attending the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York. He did a few minor parts in stage roles before joining the Army in 1941 and heading off to war. When he returned he still held onto the acting bug and was cast in The Strange Love of Martha Ivers  in 1946.

Since that first film, Douglas has amassed nearly 100 acting credits and 30 producing credits.

His daughter-in-law Cathrine Zeta-Jones, who is married to his son Michael Douglas sent out a tribute on Instagram.

Happy birthday Kirk Douglas!
