“I never, ever thought I would live to be 100. That’s shocked me, really. And it’s sad, too,” he adds.
There are so many friends he misses, the downside to being the last legend standing from the golden age of Hollywood.
“I miss Burt Lancaster – we fought a lot, and I miss him a lot. And John Wayne, even though he was a Republican and I was a Democrat,” he says.
Wayne was similarly fond of Douglas – they made a handful of movies together – but he was a little baffled by him. In The Ragman’s Son, one of Douglas’s several beautifully written memoirs, he recounts that Wayne attended a screening of Lust for Life, Douglas’s heartfelt 1956 biopic of Vincent van Gogh, and was horrified.
I guess back then being a "Democrat" didn't necessarily mean placing oneself on a pedestal of moral superiority and right-wingers and left-wingers could get along well-enough to make movies together.
